Paid • Full Time • Permanent [email protected] Tim Burkinshaw

Sectors: conservation & wildlife

Closing date: Wednesday, 3rd February 2021  

An exciting opportunity to work in a dynamic Local Authority on the Yorkshire Coast. You will play a key role on the ground in delivering the Council’s Restoration Plan for the Cinder Track, a 36km shared use trail along a disused railway line between the Borough’s two main resorts.

The council is recruiting a permanent Ranger to their Parks and Countryside Service to repair, maintain and enhance the Cinder Track to maintain the integrity and accessibility, aligned to the Council’s Restoration Plan.

The successful candidate will work closely with other officers and Partners before, during and after capital improvement schemes, to ensure that the investment in the track is appropriately sustained.

The role will suit a dynamic self-starter who can work on their own initiative to establish and carry out a long term maintenance and renewals programme. You will relish working with local communities, volunteers and partner organisations, acting as an ambassador for the Council and our Partners.

Maintenance of the track will require you to carefully balance needs of users, local communities and the route’s ecology and heritage value while addressing its multi-use nature. Promotion of the track will contribute to the Authority’s green recovery and carbon reduction aspirations by enabling a wider range of users and visitors to access the route both for recreation and utility use, such as getting to school, work or local services.

To be successful in this role you will be an achievement-focused self-starter, always aiming to go above and beyond. You will demonstrate strong customer-focused values, a practical, problem-solving flair and good communication skills through a wide range of media. You will be competent in a range of practical countryside management skills, using appropriate tools and machinery and able to carry out work to a high standard.
