Park Assistant

We are currently recruiting for our busy spring/summer season and are looking for energetic and outgoing people to join our Park Assistant team. We hope to find people who are dynamic and share a passion for the work that the Wildwood Trust carries out in educating visitors in the importance of British wildlife.

The job is fast paced and involves interacting with the visiting public on a daily basis and rotating between several different jobs. These may involve on any given day: car parking, litter picking, manning the drop slide and general housekeeping around the park. Full training will be given, and customer service is of great importance to us.

This job is part time and seasonal, but we are always looking for engaging people to join our team on a more long-term basis. The job involves weekend and school holiday work, so availability during these times is a must. Applicants must be 18 and over.

If you think you would enjoy working with Wildwood to ensure that every visitor has a special day, then please send a cover letter and C.V. to jobs@wildwoodtrust.org for attention of Laura Shea.

Interviews will take place in the first week of February, with the job role beginning on or around the 16th February ready for half term.
