Build the success of High Lodge, Thetford Forest

As a Non-Ministerial Government Department, The Forestry Commission (FC) offers a valuable service to the nation. Managing and protecting woods and forests across the country, we are committed to ensuring that every generation will continue to enjoy the opportunities that these natural habitats afford. From recreation to providing a sustainable source of timber, our work is far-reaching and fascinating.

High Lodge, Thetford Forest is a key priority recreational facility. Sitting on the Suffolk/Norfolk border, this successful visitor attraction draws around 450,000 visitors every year. As an area of true natural beauty, High Lodge combines progressive and challenging cycling and walking trails,, while our more daring visitors enjoy adventurous pursuits such as Go-Ape Tree Top Adventure and Forest Segway, in which visitors can explore the Forest on an all-terrain Segway!

You will be central to the success of this exciting attraction, overseeing the day-to-day running of High Lodge and identifying new opportunities for income generation and business growth, while seeking to build and maintain a loyal visitor-base. Managing the Forest Centre team (which includes both permanent members of staff and contractual/seasonal employees), you will ensure our facilities and services are meeting the highest standards, and that the annual programme of events that you have planned is successful. Working with third-party businesses such as cycle hire and the onsite café, you will monitor performance and work in partnership to support business development. Ensuring our facilities (such as buildings, play areas and trails) are regularly inspected and maintained, you will put customer satisfaction and safety at the heart of your work.

As we will expect you to work collaboratively with both private and public service organisations, this position would be well-suited to someone with outstanding communication and partnership-building skills. Qualified to degree-standard (or equivalent) and with a background in managing facilities and events in the outdoor recreation environment, you will have a good understanding of relevant health and safety standards. With the capacity to get the best out of your people, you will thrive in this team if you are a motivated leader with a passion for developing and sustaining one of the UK’s most inspirational outdoor locations.
