We are looking for two new rangers to join the ZIP field team at Bottle Rock peninsula.
• 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 firstname.lastname@example.org, quoting 'Ranger Vacancy' in the subject header.
Applications close at 5:00pm on Monday 20 March 2017.
ZIP was established in February 2015 as a research and development entity focused on developing the tools and techniques to enable an ambitious and exciting vision for New Zealand:
The complete removal of rats, stoats, and possums from large mainland areas for the long term, sustainable protection of native biodiversity.
