We are really excited to share our apprenticeship programme, with exciting openings across the National Park.

We hope these will give those of you who are appointed the opportunity to understand more about the importance of the work we do in caring for the landscape, wildlife, and promoting enjoyment of this special place.

You may think that the National Park is all about working outside, such as ranger roles, but think again!

The importance of “back office” jobs should not be overlooked.

But from our head office in Midhurst the “back office” teams make sure the public know what we do. The team plan future work programmes and are basically at the very heart of all the important work we do. It’s a real team effort – and a good training ground for anyone interested in nature and the environment!

The roles are:

  • Planning apprentice Level 3 – This apprenticeship will require attending college to undertake a level 3 NVQ in planning. Your work placement  will be based in Midhurst working within the planning directorate supporting the work of DM Systems and Technical Support, Development Management, Planning Policy and Major Planning Projects and Technical.

Interview dates: To be confirmed
