Job description

Are you an experienced individual with a background in visitor experience, retail, catering, or hospitality looking for a new challenge and a great work life balance? If so then this is an unmissable opportunity to work for a fantastic charity where you would sit within the commercial team and will be using your skills to give all our visitors a fantastic experience and in turn generate income via our visitor centre, shop and cafe that will be used to help us protect wildlife for future generations.

Our visitor centre is open between 10am and 4pm 7 days a week, and we run 1-2 events a month that mean the centre might be open a little bit later such as Bat Walks or birthday parties. you will join a small team of 4-5 staff on site, who are supported by 50+ volunteers to deliver conservation, commercial and education activities.

This is a truly unique position where you will be working on one of the most beautiful and well-established nature reserves we manage with fantastic views, fresh air and what can only be described as very favourable hours for the commercial world.

Our visitor centre, shop and café is brand new and less than 6 months old, it has a modern, relaxed, dog friendly, wellies on vibe and no one day will be the same, you might be working in the centre one day, training volunteers on customer service the next, planning and programming a free kids nature theme crafting activity the next and maybe even helping conservation keep an eye on the Hebridean sheep that live on the reserve the next.

You don’t need to have worked in the charitable sector before, but if you have then that’s a bonus – the most important thing we are looking for is someone that understands how to give a visitor a fantastic experience and has experience generating income, managing a budget and being entrepreneurial to create and develop our offering on site to ensure people keep coming back time after time to enjoy the reserve and centre.
