Opportunity with Forestry England: Campsite Development Programme Lead

Forestry England has launched a search for a new role to lead and innovate camping and glamping development across the nation’s forests.

This is a national role offered based on a combination of office based and virtual working. The role can be based at any Forestry England office with good travel and IT connections.

Forestry England is the country’s largest land manager, caring for the nation’s forests for people, nature and the economy. Whilst being the biggest provider of outdoor recreation in England, our recreation and visitor experience business plays an essential role in fulfilling the purpose of Forestry England. We believe that the immersion into nature, adventure and direct access to all of the recreational facilities that our campsites provide, is a unique and desirable offer that already attracts year-round repeat visitors.

We currently have 18 campsites in operation and plan to diversify and grow this unrivalled offer, establishing new camping, glamping and motorhome products and experiences in a greater range of forest locations.

We are looking for a talented individual to take an insight led approach to innovate and deliver commercially viable new offerings and establish new and effective relationships with developers and operators.

If you have knowledge and experience gained within the leisure and accommodation sector and are ready for the challenge of growing the net value of camping and glamping to our business, while connecting people with nature in our nation’s forests, we’d love to hear from you.

Closing date: 3rd May. Find out more here.
