Parks, recreation and culture jobs

What do Rangers do?

Rangers enable safe and enjoyable outdoor recreation and education experiences in regional park settings, while conserving and protecting natural wildlife and cultural heritage resources.  Rangers work alongside contractors, manage volunteers to complete practical work in the parks, like animal pest control operations, weed treatment, nursery work, farming, law enforcement, track upgrades/maintenance and machinery handling. Rangers also manage campgrounds, lodges and holiday homes, as well as carrying out projects of behalf of Senior Rangers for Programmes, Partnerships, Recreation and Conservation.

Why we need you?

We have high numbers of visitors during the summer period. We need you to assist Rangers in concentrating on our visitors and aid with day to day duties on parks. Summer Rangers split work load, replace staff over holiday periods, and create a learning experience for the company and the supervisors. Summer Rangers inspire staff and create opportunities for future employment into Auckland Council.
 

 

What do you benefit in return?

Regional Parks have a remarkable reputation which results in this campaign attracting a high number of quality students year after year. Being selected to be one of the 14 summer rangers of 2020, is an achievement itself.

Regional parks Student Rangers get paid to spend the summer outdoors, have the option of accommodation provided,4 WD training  and get an NZQA qualifications once the programme is completed.
