Job outline - Countryside Ranger - Machinery Operator


Hart District Council is pleased to announce that it is looking for a highly motivated, outgoing, Countryside Ranger to work as part of its Countryside Team, based at Fleet Pond SSSI in rural north Hampshire and working throughout the district. The Hart District area covers part of the Thames Basin Heaths SPA and the Forest of Eversley Heritage area, including various SSSIís, commons and open spaces that encompass the assorted heaths, woodlands and wetland habitats around the District. The Service has three Green Flag Award sites.


The role is to bolster our existing team as we take on several new sites, including a Country Park at Edenbrook. The successful candidate will work alongside our existing machinery operator as we expand our fleet of equipment.  


You will report to the Senior Ranger and will need to be a hands-on, self motivated person, able to demonstrate experience of powered machinery maintenance and operation, particularly small to medium sized tractors and associated attachments, pedestrian tractors and attachments plus hand held power equipment such as brush cutters and chainsaws. This post will require good project management and communication skills, to be able to meet tight deadlines and be flexible and pragmatic.


You will require a qualification in a Countryside Management discipline or other relevant subject. We will consider Further Education qualification with relevant work experience. You will also require a full driving licence ideally with BE classification for trailer towing and as the work also involves management of open water, you must be a competent swimmer.
