About this role

We want visitors to know they are walking on a Woodland Trust site, and to do this we are increasing our on the ground presence. This includes utilising our mobile visitor centre, which is a large van, which opens out into a colourful and attractive mini-unit in which we can welcome visitors, answer questions and give out leaflets.

Once a hunting forest providing venison for the King’s table, Hainault is a beautiful ancient woodland home to a wealth of wildlife and plant species. Together with the southern section, owned by the London Borough of Redbridge, it forms Hainault Forest Country Park. The country park has a lake, petting farm and orienteering course, which makes it the perfect destination for a family day out. Plus it’s easily accessible from central London and on the doorstep of a large urban community.

 A key part of the role is welcoming visitors to the site in peak visiting times and distributing leaflets and information, providing a Woodland Trust presence on the site for visitors. The role may also involve supporting events held on the site to engage with the public.

This role supports your local woodland by raising awareness and we hope this will encourage local people to use and respect the facilities of the wood, the wildlife within the wood and increase its value in the eyes of the local communities.
