This is an exciting opportunity for you to join our National Park and work in the iconic Three Peaks area of the Yorkshire Dales.
This is a specialist ranger post, concerned with the maintenance of the public right of way network, other access routes and open access areas. It is an essential requirement that you can plan and implement, to a high standard, a variety of practical tasks.
As our Three Peaks Ranger, you will play a key role in maintaining engineered paths on the Three Peaks challenge route. Experience of upland path management techniques, including the ability and experience of driving small plant, is desirable. You will operate individually, or occasionally in area or park-wide teams, and will need to be self-motivated in all weather conditions!
You will liaise with landowners and farmers, engage effectively with users and assist with implementing the Three Peaks Project. Developing opportunities for volunteers is an important part of the post, and experience of working with and motivating volunteers is desirable.
The role will be full time (37 hours per week) until 31 March 2022 and then part time (30 hours per week) from 1 April 2022 onwards.
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.
