Job description:
This is an enviable opportunity to take the lead at a visitor attraction in a beautiful and unique setting.

At the Forestry Commission, we manage and care for England’s public forests. Wendover Woods in the Chilterns is home to one of our forest centres. Around 350,000 visitors every year enjoy a wide range of activities including tree top adventure, cycling and walking. We are about to begin a major £4.5 million capital investment project, spanning everything from a new cafe to improved play facilities. These developments create a significant opportunity to deliver an even bigger, better and more diverse recreation offer. You’ll be at the forefront at this exciting time.

As Wendover’s first ever dedicated Forest Centre Manager, you’ll build a team of Recreation Rangers and Visitor Services staff. Together, you will create a flagship forest centre that visitors consider to be the best around. Setting its direction, you’ll drive business growth by identifying all kinds of new opportunities to deliver more income from better services. You’ll make a positive impact supporting the delivery of the capital investment project. Ultimately, you’ll be at the heart of a visitor experience that is fun, safe and memorable.

To be equal to the challenge, you’ll need proven business management skills. We’ll expect you to have managed a successful facility, destination or attraction. There, you’ve led and managed a skilled team, and taken responsibility for the health and safety of staff, contractors, facilities and services. Dedicated to delivering quality services and achieving great value for money, you are an excellent communicator and an inclusive leader, with a passion for partnership and collaboration.

If you're calm under pressure, highly responsible and a natural with people from all walks of life, this is your chance to develop as a Lifeguard. We look for integrity, a can-do attitude and a real focus on customer service. Passion and personality will also stand you in good stead, combined with knowledge of health and safety legislation and a National Pool Lifeguard Qualification. A great team player, you'll make sure our customers have the best possible experience - in terms of enjoyment, safety and hygiene.

In return, we offer:
- Pension
- Childcare vouchers
- Ride to work scheme
- Discounted membership at our leisure centres
- The opportunity to join the GLL Society and have a say in how we're run plus associated social events
- Career pathways
- Ongoing training and development

If you have the passion and skills for this role, apply now.

All pay rates are subject to skills, experience, qualifications, age and location.

To be shortlisted for the role, internal applicants will need to demonstrate their commitment to GLL by becoming a Society member where eligible.
