The Wildwood Trust, a unique British charity dedicated to rewilding Britain through the restoration of wild habitats and reintroduction of extinct species, is advertising for the unique role of ‘Maintenance Manager’ at its Wildwood Escot Park in Devon.

Wildwood became a charity in 2002 and now works solely for wildlife conservation and public education. In 2015, Wildwood Trust took over the running of the animal park at Escot, near Ottery St Mary (now named Wildwood Escot) to develop a new rewilding visitor centre.

Its aim is to inform and inspire people with the story of British wildlife past and present, giving people the inspiration, skills and ability to play an active role in its protection and restoration.

Wildwood’s ultimate success depends on the value its employees can deliver to its members, donors and visitors. The charity is looking for a highly motivated, confident individual to take the lead on its challenging maintenance and development programme in a full-time role. The successful applicant will have a proven background in the oversight, management and delivery of construction projects and specific experience within the family attractions, zoos and/or agricultural/animal management sectors would be highly valued, though not essential.

Every employee has an important role to play within Wildwood Escot. The team celebrates when things are going well; pulls together with a strong teamwork ethic when the going gets tough; essentially working together to build on the charities values and vision to make a difference to the lives of native and formerly native British animals, restoring Britain’s wild spaces for future generations.
