Contract Type: Permanent

Reference/IRC: IRC107460

Closing Date: 26 / 09 /2021

Salary: £24075

We have two roles both working across Mid-Somerset. One covering sites on the Mendip Hills and the other looking after our Poldens, Coast and Levels properties. Both posts will be based out of the Barton Office at the eastern end of the Mendip ridge and part of the wider Somerset Coast & Countryside team.

What you'll be doing

As the Area Ranger you will manage a team of volunteers and coordinate countryside work across Mid-Somerset. Supported by the Countryside Manager, you will work alongside other departments in the property team to develop work programmes to deliver our site management plans. You will play a key role in undertaking day to day engagement and conservation work as well as involvement in project delivery. As such you will be a major contributor to realising our ambitions to improve NT land for nature and people in Somerset.

You will play the key role in maintaining excellent standards of presentation and property maintenance, successfully achieving Conservation Performance Indicator targets. You will build and maintain strong professional relationships with colleagues, contractors, tenants and neighbouring land managers.

Sites within the Mid-Somerset are increasingly popular places to visit and as such a key element of both roles will be as an advocate for the Trusts work within the local community and you will actively seek to engage and develop relationships with a wide range of both new and existing audiences.
