You'll be responsible for leading and positively engaging local communities in the Trust’s work to restore a beautiful, healthy natural environment in Purbeck. As part of the Land, Outdoors and Nature (LON) team, you'll drive to raise the profile of the positive work the Trust is doing, by listening to the needs of local people and developing opportunities for partnerships and collaborations that will make our conservation agenda relevant to everyone, not just our members. By understanding the needs of visitors to the Purbeck countryside, as well as the challenges for nature conservation, you'll bring user groups and site managers together - so that more people enjoy our land, and they do so in a way that supports nature rather than threatens it.

This 1000 year old royal castle stands at the gateway to the Isle of Purbeck. The area, famed for its beaches, castle and countryside, is home to some of the rarest species in the UK, including British reptiles. To become part of our friendly team, you'll need a love of the outdoors and an interest in active pursuits. A strong commercial focus and year-round opening means work at Purbeck Island requires energy and commitment, and the roles are fun and varied in a unique location.What you'll be doing
Purbeck is one of the National Trust’s most outstanding countryside properties, and we have ambitious plans for the coming years to make it as rich in nature as we possibly can.
Your role will be to engage local communities and visitors in these plans, and find opportunities to make our work for nature relevant to everybody. In particular you'll develop links with the outdoor recreation sector and help develop a culture of responsible use that champions Purbeck’s unique wildlife.
You’ll also work closely with the Visitor Services teams at our two busiest sites - Studland Beach and Corfe Castle - to help make our work for nature more relevant to everybody who visits National Trust in Purbeck.Who we're looking for
