Job Description

JOB PURPOSE

A Seasonal Ranger plays a crucial role in ensuring that our conservation ambitions go hand in hand with welcoming our local community and visitors from across the globe to this well-loved place.

You will share your enthusiasm for the outdoors and passion for the countryside with the walkers, campers and sightseers who come to explore Corrieshalloch Gorge during the busy summer season.

You will work out in the Corrieshalloch landscape patrolling our busy car park, walking trails and pinch points such as Fowlers bridge which has a capacity of 6 people. You will act as an ambassador for the National Trust for Scotland, building awareness and support for our charity. You’ll leave those you meet with a desire to respect, protect and enjoy this special natural environment and an understanding of how they can help do this.

You will work on your own and with other staff and volunteers, on a variety of practical conservation tasks to help us achieve the high presentation and habitat management standards expected of a National Nature Reserve, Site of Special Scientific Interest, Special Area of Conservation, National Scenic area and Geological Conservation Area.

You will contribute to the long-term sustainability of Corrieshalloch’s ranger service through income generated at our car park, memberships and donations inspired by our work, growing our capacity through volunteers and cost-effective use of resources.

Interested applicants should forward a completed application form to the People Department (Applications), The National Trust for Scotland, Hermiston Quay, 5 Cultins Road Edinburgh EH11 4DF, by mail or by email via workforus@nts.org.uk, by first post (i.e. 10.00am) on 16th July 2021.
