Visitor Experience Officer
Reference number: A7410217
Location: Holyhead, Anglesey
Starting Salary - £17,276 to £18,715 per annum
Hours: Full time
Contract: Until 30th September 2017
They are looking for an enthusiastic and driven individual to develop and deliver a first class visitor experience. This will mean making the most of the whole of the South Stack reserve which includes working outdoors, in the visitor centre as well as giving off and on site talks and presentations. The post holder will be responsible for all aspects of the reserve operation relating to visitor experience. For example this will include designing and delivering an innovative events programme that is relevant to the location, encouraging repeat visits, developing the reserve's link with the local community through engagement with local groups and societies and involvement with support for nature conservation and the work through membership.
The successful candidate will have a genuine passion for wildlife and for enthusing people about nature conservation. They will be a good communicator, both in written and spoken forums so the ability to communicate in Welsh is desirable but not essential, however you must be comfortable talking in front of groups of people and leading guided walks. The successful candidate must be a self motivated and driven individual, capable of delivering work to a high standard, often without direct supervision, so strong organisational and prioritisation skills will be key.
Previous time spent working within a visitor focused environment will be beneficial, with demonstrable experience of planning and running events, interpretation and communications all being beneficial. However, the key feature they will be looking for in the successful candidate will be a genuine passion and enthusiasm to enhance visitors' experience at South Stack.
If you think you have the skills, experience and passion needed to develop, then they look forward to receiving you application.
