Job description:

Have you got fantastic team leadership skills and experience of achieving stretching sales targets in a busy visitor environment? Are great conversations and exceptional service at the heart of everything you do? We’d like you to bring those skills to the biggest conservation charity in Europe. We need your help to delight our visitors every day, helping us grow our membership every year.

Please be advised that this role will involve regular weekend working, as well as working during the school holidays, on Bank Holidays and over the Christmas period on a rota basis.

What it's like to work here

Our 114 acres, with house, water mill, gardens and woodland provide adventure, relaxation and inspiration throughout the seasons. Only six miles from Cambridge city centre, we have many local visitors who return to us time and again.

You'll be part of a broader visitor experience team on the property, delivering great service to visitors, promoting good communication across the site and developing experiences to move, teach and inspire.

You’ll coach and motivate the team to ensure excellent service is delivered everytime, including a great welcome and goodbye. You’ll manage your resources and engage your team in adapting to new ways of working, helping us manage growth and capacity challenges across the property.
