Parks Victoria now requires that some prospective employees undergo a National Police Record Check prior to an employment offer being made. This includes all seasonal Project Firefighters, newly appointed Field Services Officers (Fire Operations), Authorised officers and any position that has financial accountabilities.
As part of the job application you will be asked to acknowledge this as a mandatory pre-employment requirement and consent to the results of the check being returned directly to Parks Victoria. You are, however, not required to complete the consent form until instructed to do so by a Parks Victoria staff member. If you are a current Parks Victoria employee you are not required to undergo a check.
Having a criminal record does not automatically preclude you from being employed. Parks Victoria Human Resources will undertake a comprehensive assessment before making any decision on suitability for employment.

Unable to get machinery onto the trail, about 22 Parks Victoria staff spent most of the day removing the apples and other debris. They managed to retrieve about 30 boxes of apples which were put onto a barge and floated down the Yarra River to Burnley Harbour, then loaded onto a truck and delivered to Melbourne Zoo as a special treat for the Zoo’s elephants. Parks Victoria’s Ranger in Charge Dave Moore, who had spent most of Thursday collecting apples, was delighted to pay a visit to the Zoo to see the elephants enjoying their unexpected windfall.

A zoologist employed to monitor wildlife at the site tracked a number of water rats evacuating the area over the last few weeks since the drawdown commenced. The animals have found new temporary homes in surrounding creeks and waterways. Visitors are encouraged to stay away from the lake bed for their own safety.

The Main Yarra Trail from Burnley Harbour to Punt Road was closed this morning when a truck crashed and spilt its load of apples with quite a lot of debris landing on the trail. Due to the location, the site must be cleared by hand and the debris loaded onto a litter barge for transport. There are 20 Parks Victoria staff working and Citylink have provided four people to assist. Work is progressing well. We hope to get it reopened this afternoon in time for the evening peak.View post | Thu, 17 Jul 2014 11.37
