What we're looking for
The Loch Garten Nature Centre has recently undergone a redevelopment, funded by European Structural Funds, and we want people visiting our refurbished facility to be met with a smile. You will actively provide a warm welcome for all visitors, thank RSPB members for their support and ensure that visitors' needs are understood and met to the best of our ability. The Centre can be a busy and exciting place, especially during weekends and holidays, and we aim to provide excellent customer service and care. Our aim is to maximise contact with all our visitors, as a face-to-face experience is often so much more rewarding. We need your help to meet and greet families, including children, and other visitors of all ages and nationalities; to show, explain and interpret the Caledonian pineforest surrounding the Centre, including our breeding ospreys, and the conservation work we undertake on the wider reserve as part of the Cairngorms Connect partnership. We run a series of hands-on activities for children and families, as well as a programme of special events eg guided walks, themed weekends etc and your help with these added extras will always be welcomed! Occasionally you may be asked to walk the forest trails near the centre, interacting with our visitors out in the forest and ensuring that all visitors are respecting the reserve and behaving responsibly in accordance with the Scottish Outdoor Access Code.
