Field Officer General Operations



National Parks and Wildlife Service has a number of exciting temporary opportunities to join the NPWS team. 



The roles will support delivery of a stimulus funded program that was announced in late 2020 by the NSW Government. This funding – provided to create jobs and grow the NSW economy – will focus on the maintenance, repair and restoration of visitor and park management infrastructure as well as weeding and landscaping in key locations to improve the local environment, enhance the visitor experience and support local tourism.



We are looking for hard-working, reliable individuals who are who are interested in national parks.





- There are multiple opportunities located across NSW; select your preferred location(s) in the application form.

- Package includes annual salary of $42,460 (inclusive of annual leave loading) and employer's contribution to superannuation.

- These are temporary roles for an initial 12-month period, with a possibility of further extension until June 2022.



About the role

In the role of Field Officer General Operations, you will be performing a variety of hands-on, practical duties across the national park(s) in your area, from maintenance and cleaning of visitor facilities, general ground duties, basic maintenance of walking tracks and responding to general enquiries from visitors in the parks. 



This is a physically active role suited to candidates of all genders who are fit, enjoy working outdoors as part of a team, and are eager to learn and develop the skills and qualifications needed to contribute toward improving and maintaining some of NSW’s most precious natural places.



Firefighting is not a requirement of these roles as this is not the focus of their work.



To be considered for the role you must meet the below essential requirements:



- Current driver licence and ability to obtain 4WD certification within first 6 months of employment.

- Demonstrated ability to carry out duties safely. 

- Willingness to obtain relevant SafeWork NSW certification to appropriately operate and maintain minor plant and equipment along with a willingness to obtain a First Aid certificate.

- Certification, or ability to obtain certification within the first 6 months of employment, to operate a chainsaw to crosscut standard; ability to operate two-way radio.



A pre-employment medical will be conducted for all preferred candidates.
