Opportunities for Aboriginal trainee rangers

30/01/2017

The Parks and Wildlife Service (PWS) is seeking applications for six Aboriginal trainee rangers as part of a partnership program between the Tasmanian Government and the Australian Government's Working on Country program.


The positions are part of the Hodgman Liberal Government's commitment to reset the agenda with the Aboriginal community.


This is a unique opportunity for Aboriginal community members to gain professional qualifications in land management and improve long term employment outcomes.


The program increases the diversity of the State Service workforce and assists the PWS to improve its management of Aboriginal heritage values on reserved land, in collaboration with the Aboriginal community.


The connections these rangers provide with the Aboriginal community are invaluable to the PWS.


Four of the positions are funded by the Australian Government and two are funded by the Tasmanian Government.


The six positions are for a four-year fixed term, with the locations to be negotiated with the successful applicants.
