Park Ranger, Caldicot Castle Country Park and Old Station Tintern

Caldicot Castle is set within 55 acres of idyllic country park. Founded by the Normans, developed in royal hands as a stronghold in the Middle Ages and restored as a Victorian family home, the castle has a romantic and colourful history.

The Old Station nestles beside the River Wye in the heart of the Wye Valley in Tintern. This idyllic 10 acre site boasts the best of what Monmouthshire has to offer; a varied selection of food from our newly refurbished cafe, family events and activity packs, a children’s play area, and a zip wire. Old Station, Tintern is a great base for walks along the Wye Valley

We are looking for two exceptional individuals who love working in the outdoors and will take pride in contributing to the upkeep of our beautiful Country Parks. With your endless passion for our work, you’ll help with the protection and care of the environment,  wildlife, property and machinery, and your passion will inspire others to love this beautiful place as much as you do. We want you to engage with visitors, making time to talk to them, not rushing away to the next task. As an easily identifiable member of the Castle and Old Station team, on your best day you will be creating lasting memories for everyone.

We want to ensure that special places like Caldicot Castle and Country park and Old Station Tintern are here to be both protected and enjoyed by everyone for ever. After all, your passion and dedication could fire the imagination that makes a visitor become a supporter for the rest of their life.

MonLife believes that people deserve more than just ‘good service’, but an amazing experience they’ll never forget, and we are looking for like-minded people to join us – are you ready?
