Description

The Aberdeen City Council Ranger Service is currently looking to expand on its highly successful volunteer ranger programme. We are currently looking to recruit a number of committed and enthusiastic individuals to assist the Ranger Service in the management of a variety of sites around the city.
The work involved is varied and, where possible, tailored to the volunteer's interests.
This would be a perfect opportunity for people wanting to develop their CV, wanting to get out and learn more about the landscape and wildlife of their local area or even just people wanting to get out and enjoy some practical work in an interesting setting. However do be aware that often you will be outside doing physical work for most of the day so a reasonable level of fitness is needed.
We do ask that where possible volunteers commit to joining as many work days as they can, these will normally run once or twice a week through the year this will allow us to help you develop your skills and explore your interests as much as possible. However if you only want to work in your local area, or if you are only interested in certain volunteer tasks, we are happy to only contact you when a relevant opportunity arises. We are also happy for people to join one of our sessions on a “taster” basis before committing long term.
If you are interested in using this opportunity towards a John Muir Award, Duke of Edinburgh Award or any other qualification please just let us know and we can see what we can do to help.

This opportunity will assist you in gaining the following skills:

  • Interpersonal/Confidence
  • Teamwork
  • Problem solving/Creativity

Training will be provided by the organisation for this position:

Specific training will be provided for all tasks undertaken and all tools used.
