The Role

As a Senior Ranger, you will prioritise and deliver a wide range of recreation and conservation project work. You’ll have a great team of people to work with including paid staff, volunteers and apprentices.

You’ll be the face of the National Park in your area, so working with local communities, landowners and interest groups, and establishing good working relationships with them will be key to your success.

- Examples of working in partnership with communities, landowners, farmers, Parish Councils and user groups
- Proven knowledge and experience of Health & Safety legislation, especially in relation to site risk assessments and working procedures
- Knowledge of legislation affecting access and Public Rights of Way
- A full, valid driving licence

Knowledge of the economic and management needs of moorland areas and an understanding of hill farming systems would be beneficial to your application, as would a working knowledge of GIS and its practical application.

Please note, you will need a flexible attitude to working hours and days and a willingness to work one weekend in four as part of a Duty Ranger rota.
