We are recruiting an Engagement Manager

The majority of Bradgate Park, along with the whole of Swithland Wood, is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest. The Park’s geology and archaeology are of international importance and the ruins of Bradgate House, one of the finest houses of Tudor England, are a Scheduled Ancient Monument. The Park is much-loved by local people, the majority of whom are probably unaware of the site’s heritage value.

Visitors account for 80% of the Trust’s income with the remainder coming from a combination of rents, agri-environment grants, events and sales of venison and timber products. The Trust has recently begun to explore other sources of income and has embarked on a range of fundraising activities including a legacy campaign, memorials scheme and a corporate membership programme.

The Engagement Manager will lead these twin strands of our engagement work – engagement by visitors, families and schools with the Estate’s heritage and engagement with, and support of, the work of the Trust as a charity. This support might be financial but also by way of volunteering – our volunteers deliver much of our engagement work as well as carrying out conservation tasks such as tree planting and dry-stone walling and providing two-thirds of the staffing of our Visitor Centre, which was opened by Sir David Attenborough in 2016 and is a main focal point for our engagement and interpretation work.
