Our corporate structure

Working at Forest Holidays isn't just an ordinary job. Meet some of our team and find out about their journey, what attracted them to Forest Holidays, and what they've got planned for the future.

We employ nearly 600 people. Each location has a General Manager and a team of full-time and part-time colleagues who do everything from serving lunches to cleaning cabins. Our Forest Rangers possibly have the best job of all, introducing guests to the forest and teaching them about the natural environment. Backing up our locations, we have a team of over 70 people at our support centre.

Our board of directors, with a wealth of experience from both within Forest Holidays and from other organisations, give the leadership and encouragement needed to stay on course to fulfil our vision.
