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.

Closing date: 1 September 2017.
