Love the Outback and enjoy variety at work? National Parks field officers are on the front line in national parks, delivering conservation and visitor programs.
About the role
As a field officer, you will work as a team to enhance and preserve the natural and cultural heritage of our parks. Our field officers are the boots on the ground working in a team to undertake a diverse range of tasks including construction, maintenance, pest control and firefighting.
You’ll also be relied upon to assist with the maintenance of visitor areas, protection of Aboriginal cultural heritage sites, operation and maintenance of plant and equipment, liaise with visitors, and implement fire and pest and weed management activities.
Field officers are flexible and organised, and work well in a team environment or alone with minimal supervision. A trade background is beneficial but is not essential. Some travel will be involved in this role and possibly for multiple days at a time depending on work requirements.
