Assistant Ranger - Education, Community and Health
The Country Parks Service has a portfolio of 5 Country Parks and 3 Greenways across Warwickshire serving in excess of 900,000 visitors a year.
Ryton Pools Country Park is a 100 acre country park and is great to explore. There are many different habitats that are home to a wide range of birds and other wildlife. The excellent surfaced paths enable easy walking around the site, and provide access to adjoining ancient woodland Ryton Wood, the two new Play Areas and Pirate Trail.
We’re looking for an Assistant Ranger to join us to focus on Education, Communities and Health.
As our Assistant Education, Communities and Health Ranger you’ll be assisting with the delivery of a wide range of activities based in Country Parks, which support all-age education, community development and physical and mental health and wellbeing. Working as part of a team and on your own initiative, you’ll be involved with school programmes, holiday events, and have the opportunity to support practical volunteer programmes in the maintenance of our Country Parks and Greenways.
You will need to be flexible: working some weekends and bank holidays, working across sites in all weathers and sometimes changing shifts as necessary.
Skills, Knowledge and Experience
With previous experience of working in a country park or leisure environment you’ll need to be an able communicator with an ability to provide first class customer service. As an all-rounder, it’s essential you have practical countryside skills, a working knowledge of native flora and fauna and an interest in wildlife, conservation, and sustainability issues.
Experience of delivering educational activities and events, coupled with the administration and organisational needs of running programmes of school visits is desirable.
