Mangaiti Gully Restoration Trust acknowledges Ngāti Wairere as Hapū for Mangaiti Gully.
Title: Team Leader – Restoration Natural Areas
Location: Hamilton City / Rototuna North
Job type: Full Time (40hrs)
Duration: 3 year contract
Mangaiti Gully Restoration Trust is a voluntary organisation with a 10 year history of restoring Mangaiti Gully.
The Trust’s vision is: To restore the native flora of the gully back to, as near as is practical, pre-European status and to manage the gully in such a way that native fauna (birds, fish, bats, reptiles & insects) will re-establish, either naturally or by introduction and for this to be sustainable.
Management plans and documents pertaining to the Trust’s activities plus a full job description are available to view online in the pdf library on the Trust’s blog site http://gullyrestoration.blogspot.com/
Mangaiti Gully Restoration Trust has secured three years of funding to employ a team of four under the “Jobs for Nature Community Conservation Fund”. This funding is as much about employment and training as it is about conservation.
In the first instance we wish to fill the position of team leader to run a team of three. This position is primarily field based, leading the team by example, however there is a requirement to produce activity reports to support the funding contract.
The successful applicant will need to:
· be familiar with and comply with health & safety protocols. We have a drug testing policy for all employees.
· have a good level of physical fitness
· be able to demonstrate a track record of restoration management with a good knowledge of native flora and weed identification
· be qualified in chainsaw use
· have a current Growsafe certificate (or similar)
· have good people and communication skills
We believe we have procured a remuneration package from the funder that reflects this skill base.
The three employees under the team leader will be trainees. There will be prepaid training courses organised for each.
This team will be well supported and will have a wide range of interesting activities. In addition to their targeted activities of ground preparation and infill planting and maintenance they will be expected to strike up a rapport with gully neighbours who work in the gully below their properties and assist them where appropriate. They will also be expected to be involved in the weekly half day working bees with the Trust volunteers.
We invite you to apply to join our great, highly motivated wider team that are building a better natural environment within our city.
Applicants for this position must have NZ residency/citizenship or valid NZ work visa (3 yrs)
Your CV and other relevant documents should be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org with a copy going to email@example.com . The email subject title to be “Jobs for nature team leader – your initials. Include your referees contact details in your CV. Written references are not required.
