We are looking for two new rangers to join the ZIP field team at Bottle Rock peninsula.

Are you:
•    physically fit and self-motivated;
•    someone who loves working in the outdoors;
•    passionate about helping to restore our native biodiversity; and
•    looking to develop your skills in the field?

If so, we want to hear from you!

As a ZIP field ranger, you will be working at the cutting edge of predator management, pioneering a new model to enable the complete removal of rats, possums and stoats from large mainland areas.

You will be based in Picton and spend approximately 90% of your time in the field; initially at our 440 ha Bottle Rock peninsula field development site in the beautiful Queen Charlotte Sound.

We are looking to make either a permanent appointment into each of these roles, or a secondment from the Department of Conservation, as best suits the successful applicant.

To apply, please send a cover letter and CV to info@zip.org.nz, quoting 'Ranger Vacancy' in the subject header.  

Applications close at 5:00pm on Monday 20 March 2017.
