The person in this role will primarily be responsible for ensuring the Zealandia Te Māra a Tāne sanctuary valley is a safe and welcoming space for visitors, staff and volunteers through carrying out ‘duty operations’ on a permanent part time basis, working every Saturday. The person in the role will respond to urgent or emerging situations and will start first responder processes such as first aid, wildlife issues, putting in place health and safety equipment, and connecting with other team members for biosecurity breaches. All activities should have visitor experience perceptions and safety in mind. The person in this role will also carry out key tasks for the infrastructure and conservation teams as directed and where time allows, and mentor volunteers where required.
Duty operations rangers are a highly-visible, customer-focused team focused on programme delivery. A culture of integrated teamwork is essential to ensure knowledge is shared with the whole team. All Rangers will need to be physically fit.
Like all members of staff at Zealandia, the person in this role will be expected to actively uphold our responsibilities under Te Tiriti o Waitangi, maintain and promote exceptional health and safety, and support the maintenance of biosecurity in the sanctuary.
