Work at the Wildwood Trust

Visitor Services and Park Assistant

The Wildwood Trust is looking for dynamic and reliable people to join their team of Visitor Services staff. This position requires outgoing and positive people who are passionate about the crucial work the trust does in protecting British wildlife, and who would be able to convey this passion to our visiting public.

The job will include roles and responsibilities such as recruiting members to our cause, working in the shop, cleaning, stocking, car parking, manning our hugely popular drop slide and bear bridge as well as interacting with the public on a daily basis. The job is a mix of indoor and outdoor work, and every day will be different! All new staff will be given full training in all areas.

The position is part time, seasonal with the possibility of permanent work, and we are a 7 day a week tourist attraction so being available for weekends and school holidays is a must. Hours are flexible and we are a seasonal park, so the length of the working day changes throughout the year.
