- Lead and develop two Indigenous ranger programs.
- Develop, implement, supervise and report on ranger work plans.
- Engage with partners and stakeholders in the development and delivery of the ranger programs.
The successful person will be on the leading edge of developing innovative, community led Indigenous employment and enterprise models that can have application across remote Australia. Specifically, they will work with Wiluna and Gingirana Traditional Owners, in partnership with Northern Star Resources (NSR), to build local Indigenous controlled social enterprises that include competitive market-based environmental contracting capabilities.
The successful person will coordinate ranger program development across two NSR minesites, Jundee and Plutonic on a monthly basis. The Jundee Wiluna Martu ranger program has been running over the past 4 years and has built a significant national and international profile as an innovative Indigenous employment and environmental contracting model. The Plutonic (Gingirana) program is in its infancy, having recently secured Australian Government support to commence building the partnership.
The successful person will be required to travel and work remotely in the field for extended periods of time during the field season (e.g. 2 weeks per month, February to December).
