National Parks and Wildlife Service has an exciting opportunity to join the Bourke Area leadership team and support the delivery of the National Parks Maintenance Program (NPMP).
With the support of a senior field supervisor, you’ll work closely with rangers in setting planning priorities and identifying and prioritising works programs to maintain and improve park assets.
We are looking for hard working, reliable individuals with strong project management and team supervision skills.
About the role
Some supervision and co-ordination of work crews including contractors may be required along with associated administrative and record keeping duties. You’ll also be relied upon to assist with the construction and maintenance of visitor areas, protection of Aboriginal cultural heritage sites, operation and maintenance of plant and equipment, liaise with visitors, safety audits and implement fire and pest and weed management activities. Your duties may require manual handling.
To be considered for the role you must meet the below essential requirements:
A pre employment medical will be conducted for all preferred candidates.
The role will support delivery of a stimulus funded program that was announced in late 2020 by the NSW Government. This funding – provided to create jobs and grow the NSW economy – will focus on the maintenance, repair and restoration of visitor and park management infrastructure as well as weeding and landscaping in key locations to improve the local environment, enhance the visitor experience and support local tourism.
NPWS manages more than 870 national parks and reserves throughout New South Wales, covering over 7 million hectares or 9% of the landmass of NSW. We carry out plant and animal conservation, sustainable tourism and visitation, research, education, volunteering programs and more.
NPWS is part of the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE). We are focussed on creating a liveable, inclusive and sustainable New South Wales with thriving natural environments, strong primary industries and bustling urban centres. We are the stewards of our state’s physical and environmental assets - both natural and built - and we work hard every day to ensure New South Wales continues to flourish.
A recruitment pool may be created for ongoing and temporary roles of the same role or role type that may become available for filling over the next eighteen months.
