Assistant Ranger

Location: Dudmaston, Quatt, Bridgnorth, WV15 6QN
Contract Type: Permanent
Reference/IRC: IRC150104
Closing Date: 14/04/2024
Salary: £21,021 per annum

With a love for the outdoors, you’ll enjoy working with nature and want to inspire and motivate others. You’ll help to make habitats for wildlife better and make everyone feel welcome at our places.

This is a great opportunity to develop skills and contribute to the important work we’re doing. As part of the Ranger team, you’ll need to think about our impact on the environment and how you can help.

Weekend and bank holiday working will be required. A full driving licence is essential for this role as there is an element of lone working where you'll need to use estate vehicles.

Based at Dudmaston, you’ll report to the Area Ranger. The wider Ranger team includes another Assistant Ranger plus volunteers.

Because Dudmaston is in a rural area, please think about how you’d be able to get here for work, before you apply for this job.

As Assistant Ranger, you’ll undertake different tasks in countryside management. This will include nature conservation working to make habitats better for wildlife, site inspections, routine practical maintenance, monitoring of wildlife habitats, supporting volunteers, and helping to deliver activities that strengthen people’s connections with the outdoors.

As no two days are the same, the nature of the role means a flexible approach is crucial to ensure the right level of support is given across the site. So, whether you’re maintaining our green spaces or talking to people, you’ll inspire others to love our beautiful places as much as you do.

An exciting time to join the team at Dudmaston and Kinver Edge where we are aiming to deliver at scale on Nature recovery and access improvements across the wider estate. We want to restore flood plain meadows, lowland heathland and wood pasture and improve our water and soil quality. We'll be using grazing animals to achieve this as well as fostering partnerships with our tenants.

We’d love to hear from you if you're:

  • able to demonstrate practical experience in land, conservation and access management to level 2 or have 6 months vocational experience
  • willing to work outside in all weathers and deliver tasks when the weather conditions aren’t ideal
  • comfortable working in a flexible and adaptable way
  • able to work alone or under direction, and as part of a team
  • positive with an approachable attitude
  • happy and willing to learn new things
  • enjoy the work you do and happy to share this with others
