Do you enjoy creating and maintaining safe working and visiting environments for staff, volunteers and customers? Are you a highly efficient worker who takes pride ensuring the building and surrounding area remains fit for purpose? Would you like to be part of an organisation that has positive impact on the local community as well as the natural world? Seaton Jurassic, the new flagship visitor centre on the beautiful Jurassic Coast aims to engage over 50,000 people per year with the natural environment via the story of life.
You look forward to taking ownership for a wide range of activities, including operating innovative building management systems, grounds maintenance and opening/closing of the building at set times each week. Reporting directly to the Centre Manager, you are able to work independently and ensure the centre meets all health and safety requirements.
You enjoy working in a customer service environment and regular contact with a wide variety of audiences, including suppliers and contract cleaners. You have the skills and experience to manage yourself as well as supporting your colleagues around you.
You have a can-do attitude and share the values of Devon Wildlife Trust and have experienced in a similar role.
