Assistant Ranger

Posted 15 March by National Trust Ended

Rangers have been a part of the National Trust since the beginning, our place in the organisations future means that we need to think long term about how we look after our special places. As part of the wider Ranger team, we need you to think about our impact on the environment, and find better ways to do things.

This role is an hourly paid, fixed term role. Wherever possible we aim to offer a consistent working pattern, but it may be necessary for us to alter this pattern from time to time to suit the needs of the business.

What it's like to work here

The South East Cornwall ranger team is part of a wider portfolio team covering the south coast from from Rame to Falmouth and on the north coast between St Agnes and Godrevy. This is an exceptional coastal landscape with wide sandy beaches and small secluded coves, rolling cliffs and wild headlands which adjoin mixed arable, beef and sheep farms.

What you'll be doing

With your endless passion for our work, you’ll help with the protection and care of habitats, wildlife, property and machinery, and your passion will inspire other to love this beautiful place as much as you do.

You’ll also share and promote the work that we do here, ensuring special places like these are here to be both protected and enjoyed by everyone for ever. This will see you responding to queries and explaining the value of the work being undertaken. After all, your passion and dedication could fire the imagination that makes a visitor become a supporter for the rest of their life.
