What it's like to work here

Thriving Morden Hall Park is a tranquil former deer park at the heart of the community, offering a variety of family-friendly activities, concerts and workshops. If you are creative, sociable and have great customer service skills, Morden Hall Park's team would love to hear from you.

Morden Hall Park is a perfectly preserved country estate in the heart of London, and you'd never know it was there! A magical oasis and wildlife haven in the centre of the capital, it offers a diverse countryside landscape. Punctuated by the River Wandle and its tributaries, and with magnificent tree-lined avenues, in autumn the grounds are ablaze with colour. Its just a 500 metre walk from the Northern Line and it feels like your in the middle of the countryside.

What you'll be doing

With your love of working with people and desire to provide an excellent service, you'll acknowledge, welcome and engage every visitor, offering them help and advice with their purchases. This means maintaining a thorough knowledge of our products, so you're always on hand to help, and by ensuring that all stock is correctly priced and the shop is maintained to a high standard.

As a key member of our retail team, you'll maximise the profit and sales generated at our special place, by ensuring that every opportunity is taken to increase our sales and average customer spend. When interacting with our customers, you'll inform them of the amazing work we are doing, and what their money is funding - whether this is financing local projects or promoting our national strategy, cause and membership offer.
