About the Role
The Ranger, Community is a unique and exciting role in DOC. This role forms part of the district leadership team and is responsible for planning and implementing the community work programmes for the Rotoiti / Nelson Lakes District.
This opportunity has become available while the position holder away until the end of March 2022.
You will be located in St Arnaud, Lake Rotoiti and will work closely with our treaty partners, communities and businesses.
As this role does not have reporting rangers it is both planning and doing' and by necessity requires you to get around the district and to work productively with DOCs many neighbours.
This is an enticing element of field work incorporated into the role. Picture, talking to a neighbour whose land bounds onto the near-by mountains in the serene Nelson Lakes National Park right at your doorstep.
In fact, the office is in the national park.
