One of our most varied roles, our Forest Retreat Team Leaders support the Forest Retreat Manager in the everyday running of our on-location shop, café, and bar; the Forest Retreat. Managing all aspects of the food and beverage experience within a single operation is a demanding, but rewarding, role that helps to create extraordinary experiences for our guests.
Opening and closing the Forest Retreat, delegating tasks to the team, communicating with guests and activity suppliers make up a small portion of the day-to-day activities.

Our Forest Retreat Team Leaders are always willing to help, flexible, hard-working team players who make the most of the natural environment they work in. They are also knowledgeable about our product and the surrounding area and are able to establish a report with our guests.
Skills and experience
To be successful in this role you’ll need to be computer literate, friendly, able to communicate effectively to people of all ages and career stages, and able to work well under pressure and think on your feet. If you have previous experience which includes customer service, managing people, leadership, inventory and cash management, ideally within a food and beverage environment, then we’d love to hear from you!
