Our people are one of our greatest assets at Forest Holidays, and our guests value their down-to-earth friendliness and local knowledge. We employ local people in rural areas across the country and they enjoy working in nature, making a difference to people’s lives and to the natural world around them.
Beyond our range of job opportunities, including full-time and part-time roles, apprenticeships, university placements and career development paths, there’s a team culture and a genuine sense of purpose. We are part of a movement towards sustainable UK tourism which includes improving the perception and reality of tourism employment, looking after our forest locations, connecting people with nature, and year-round jobs in local communities.
The unique nature of our workplaces and the purpose that underpins our business, lead to high levels of job satisfaction, with 82% of our team saying they would recommend Forest Holidays as a great place to work. Our Forest Rangers, for example, love spending their days outdoors and sharing their enthusiasm, in a job like no other.
At our support centre in Moira, Derbyshire, our mainly local team look after everything from accounts to marketing. Their enthusiasm for getting on their wellies and supporting our wildlife and charity initiatives is just one of the ways in which they contribute to the bigger picture of our purpose.

We have strong roots in the communities where we are based and see ourselves as part of that community and their economy. If we can buy local, we will, and we promote local producers and craftspeople in our shop and restaurant too. For us, our suppliers are part of our team.
