Oferta de trabajo en conservación en un glaciar de Nueva Zelanda

If you love working outdoors, appreciate a remote natural environment, and have good practical field skills with proven ability for being a great team player, then this is the job for you!

The South Westland area encompasses some 800,000 ha of public conservation land. A significant proportion of this is Te Wāhipounamu South West New Zealand World Heritage Area, and includes such gems as Okarito (kayak trail, wharf shed and trig walk), Monro Beach (penguin viewing) and the icon sites of Franz Josef Glacier, Fox Glacier, Lake Matheson and Ship Creek.

In South Westland we pride ourselves on the quality and range of tourism and recreation assets we manage. We have the full range of opportunities, from backcountry huts and tracks (used predominantly for hunting tahr, chamois and deer), to campsites beside pristine lakes or wild remote west coast beaches, to the internationally famous hot pools in the Copland valley close to Welcome Flat Hut.

This stunning natural terrain requires particular understanding of hazard and visitor safety management. A critical component of this Fox Glacier Ranger role is managing the safety of visitors to the dynamic glacier valley.

This Ranger position is pivotal to the Operations Team in South Westland. We need an effective team player and good communicator, with a passion for the outdoors and enthusiasm for working with others, to showcase the recreation and conservation opportunities in South Westland.

This is one of the best locations to be working in conservation in New Zealand.

A clean, full driver’s license is essential.

Please apply online. Applications must include a cover letter, CV and evidence of the required capabilities as per the role description.
