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 Grafham 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.
We have an exciting opportunity for a Ranger to join the team at Grafham Water.
Grafham Water is set in 2,400 acres of beautiful countryside and offers a wide range of attractions for visitors of all ages.
As a Ranger, most of your time will be spent outside, undertaking maintenance of the Water Park, managing the fishery 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.
Managing Grafham Water's internationally renowned trout and predator fishery is an integral part of the role. Maintaining the fleet of 50 fishing boats, carrying out fish deliveries, running competitions and ensuring the safety of our anglers is of the highest priority. Developing new commercial fishing events and promoting the fishery and wider water park via social media channels is also vital to the continued success of the park.
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 with the Head Ranger to keep our visitors safe.
This is a busy and varied role that will see you working with members of the public and doing a wide range of physical and administrative jobs. This is a customer facing position; you'll therefore have excellent interpersonal skills and strive to deliver outstanding customer service around Grafham Water.
Experience of assisting with the management and maintenance of country parks and/or fisheries would be extremely advantageous as would having land and water based qualifications.
There will be some travel involved around the Water Park and around the area we serve. If successful in your application, the status of your driving licence will be checked. You'll also need to have a flexible approach as you will be required to work weekends and shifts.
