We are looking for a part-time ranger, predominantly working in the Buller, mainly in the Charleston area. 20 hours pw on average.

Applications close 5pm, Wednesday 8th September.

Are you passionate about conservation and want to help protect penguins on the West Coast?

We are seeking a dedicated, part-time ranger with backcountry fieldwork experience to carry out our regular monitoring and research. Ideal applicants will have wildlife handling competence plus data processing and computer skills.

Hours vary throughout the year and are concentrated on the penguin breeding season: July to December.

Most of the work will be carried out alone, so applicants need to be comfortable working independently, planning around weather and other responsibilities, and have a proactive attitude towards health and safety. Objectives such as fortnightly monitoring, data collection and analysis, and reporting, need to be met in a timely manner.

A detailed job description is available here.

For more information, phone Trust Manager, Inger Perkins, on 03 755 8600.
