Join our team and make a difference!
Anglian Water is more than just pipes and pumping stations. Did you know we are also responsible for some of the area’s most popular recreational sites in England? Our Recreation Team manages over 3,700 hectares of parkland, woodland and reservoirs including Alton Water. These areas provide valuable open space offering high quality leisure opportunities ranging from international triathlons, sailing regattas to nationally and internationally important fishing competitions. We want our visitors to experience and enjoy our great leisure facilities and to be as passionate and proud of our environment as we are.
What will you be doing?
As a Ranger, most of your time will be spent outside, undertaking maintenance of the Park, assisting with managing the Campsite and ensuring the infrastructure is in good condition. You’ll be in constant contact with our visitors and part of your role will be to provide excellent customer service.
You’ll be responsible for carrying out safety inspections and routine repairs as well as putting forward recommendations for improvements that will have a positive impact on our customer’s experience. To ensure our visitors have a safe and pleasurable visit you’ll maintain our cycling and walking paths, keep our car parks and play areas tidy, organise and deliver events, carry out conservation land management with our volunteers group and work closely to keep our visitors safe.
What do you need?
You’ll need to have experience in the management and maintenance of country parks and/or fisheries and it would be extremely advantageous if you have a land and/or water based qualification.
This is a customer facing position; you’ll therefore have excellent interpersonal skills and strive to deliver outstanding customer service around Alton Water.
If you are offered a job with us, you will be subject to the relevant/standard employment checks, including: your right to work in the UK, reference, driving licence and identity check. Depending on your role, you may also be subject to further pre-employment checks, including a DBS check.
If successful in your application, you will have access to a company vehicle to use whilst on site, so a full driving licence is essential.
