Would you like to work in one of the most beautiful landscapes in Britain – a national asset, famous for its natural beauty, wildlife, cultural heritage and outstanding opportunities for enjoyment? Are you ready for the challenge of delivering front line countryside management services for the local community and visitors to the National Park?
If so, we have a rare chance to join the National Park Authority’s Ranger Service as an Area Ranger on a permanent basis.
We are the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority, an organisation that protects, enhances and promotes the immense beauty, wildlife and character of the Yorkshire Dales. Set against expansive heather moorland tops, each valley has its own distinct charm, from crags and pavements to an underground labyrinth of caves.
We’re currently looking for an Area Ranger to join us, based at our office in Orton, Cumbria.
– Local government pension scheme
– Flexible working
– Employee discounts on various goods and services
– Cycle to work scheme
– Free parking
– Generous leave entitlement
– Recognition and rewards for your hard work
This is a great opportunity for an enthusiastic, forward thinking and pragmatic individual to join us and take a lead in delivering a broad range of National Park services within the iconic landscapes of the Western Dales including the Orton fells, the Howgills, the upper Lune Valley, Dentdale and Mallerstang.
You will need direct experience of several distinct areas of work (access and rights of way, visitor management and community engagement) and will be required to demonstrate successful project management skills, being able to deliver agreed actions to deadlines and budget.
You must be capable of dealing effectively with a range of audiences: landowners, local communities and partners to work towards improving peoples’ enjoyment and understanding of the area. Experience of working with volunteers will also be required to enable us to achieve much more than we could working alone.
Our recruitment process treats all job applications equally, regardless of age, disability, gender identity, race, ethnicity, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation or any other equality characteristic. That said, we particularly encourage applications from people from Black, Asian and other minority ethnic (BAME) backgrounds, as this group are currently under-represented throughout the Authority.
For an informal discussion and to find out more about the role, please contact Steve Hastie, Area Manager (Western Dales), on 01539 756611 or 07818 048767 or email email@example.com
