Area Ranger

Location: Yorkshire Coast, Peakside, Scarborough, YO13 0NE
Contract Type: Permanent
Reference/IRC: IRC152151
Closing Date: 26/05/2024
Salary: £26,832 per annum
Hours: 37.5 hours per week
Interviews: 3rd June

If you have any questions about this role please contact:

The Yorkshire Coast portfolio as a whole does not form a single cohesive geographic entity, but consists of no less than sixteen pieces of land spread along some forty miles of coastline, between Saltburn-by-the-Sea in the north and Newbiggin, near Filey. The larger pieces are of (small) farm scale, while many are little more than single fields, with adjoining shoreline (which is often the feature of conservation value).

Based out of Ravenscar, this role includes management of the southern half of the Yorkshire Coast starting with Saltwick Nab in the north down to Newbiggin in the south. It also includes the management of the Bridestones.

As the Area Ranger you will manage a small team of Rangers working like you throughout the portfolio: following the lead from the Property’s Business Plan you will build and manage an effective and flexible work programme for you and your team. You will support your fellow rangers in undertaking engagement and conservation work, contributing towards HLS (Higher Level Stewardship) targets.

You’ll also be responsible for helping with excellent communication of our conservation work to a wide range of audiences, both new and existing, through events, guided walks and engagement with local communities. You will appreciate the need for our countryside sites to bring in income, so your business ideas will play an important part in the team’s success.

Who we’re looking for

  • Practical experience in land, access, and conservation management, preferably including delivery of small projects and supervision of contractors
  • Experience of developing and delivering work programs to meet conservation and access outcomes
  • Experience of leading and line managing teams of staff and/or volunteers
  • Practical skills applied across a broad range of habitats and estate management, preferably with certification in chainsaw use, tractor driving, and towing trailers
  • Able to work safely, leading on compliance including writing risk assessments as well as safety and environmental procedures
  • Demonstrate a passion for nature and the outdoors - able to engage with visitors to help them understand the value of our work
  • A full UK driving licence is essential.
