The Christchurch City Council is seeking an experienced, highly motivated and suitably qualified Park Ranger to join our Parks Unit. The position involves project management and community relations experience in managing high use natural areas. You will be responsible for both office-based tasks as well as field work across a variety of diverse responsibilities, so you must be physically fit, and have excellent report-writing and office/computer skills.

A tertiary qualification or equivalent experience in NZ biodiversity conservation or outdoor recreation and park management is required, and ideally you will have some experience in environmental education as well as experience in community liaison and public speaking.

You will need to demonstrate a high level of customer focus and community engagement, as well as excellent planning and organisation skills, with the ability work effectively whether it be independently or in a team environment. Experience in Parks management including asset management systems, and the management of staff, contractors and volunteers would be an advantage.

In return, you have an opportunity to call one of the most stunning landscapes in the world your office, and will work within a collaborative and supportive team. The Council offers many other staff benefits, including preferential banking and access to our recreation & sports facilities, amongst much more.
