We are also looking for someone with a passion for visitor experience. We need you to develop new and exciting things to see and do every year for all our visitors, across all ages, to ensure they have a great experience, with fun and learning.

You must also be an excellent communicator and people person. A knowledge and interest in farming and countryside issues are desirable.
