Parks Victoria seeking seasonal rangers
Monday 26 August, 2013
Parks Victoria has commenced recruitment for its seasonal employment program. General Manager Chris Rose says there are 24 fixed-term positions available in locations across the state with opportunities for people with a range of skills including field rangers, marine specialists and those with experience in the development and delivery of interpretation programs. The roles require a certain level of fitness and experience in outdoor activities and will have an emphasis on visitor and community services and engagement.
Mr Rose said Parks Victoria has for many years provided short term opportunities for additional rangers to work in some of Victoria’s most popular parks in peak season.
“We are looking for people who are keen to spend some of this summer assisting Parks Victoria staff and helping visitors experience Victoria’s wonderful parks,” said Mr Rose.
“These are some great employment opportunities across regional and rural communities to ensure parks, facilities and visitors are well cared for over the peak visitor period.”
Applications are encouraged from people with culturally diverse backgrounds. Some locations will have a preference for certain skills, including:
- Port Campbell National Park – fluency in a Chinese language and knowledge of local Aboriginal culture;
- Brimbank Park – knowledge of African/Chinese/Indian culture;
- Nathalia area – knowledge of local Aboriginal culture.
Applicants must be available from 2 December 2013 to 21 February 2014 inclusive, including weekends as Parks Victoria offer services to the public 7 days a week.
“Parks Victoria plays a crucial role in parks and communities across the state, particularly during the peak visitor season. I look forward to seeing the seasonal recruits getting out and about and helping visitors in Victoria’s spectacular parks.”
