Queensland’s Department of Agriculture and Fisheries has begun accepting applicants for the quarry-specific roles of Forest Ranger and Forest Ranger in Charge, working in the Atherton and Emerald regions.
Suitable applicants will liaise with clients to satisfy commercial needs as they relate to local quarry products, ensuring Departmental business targets are met through the marketing of native forest products and quarry materials.
Key responsibilities will include managing the planning, authorising and monitoring of defined activities within the area of operations in accordance with Departmental and Government policies, codes, strategies and standards.
The Forest Ranger in Charge will lead their team in the Emerald region, while the two supplementary positions will work out of either Atherton or Emerald.
The Department is looking for tech savvy people who enjoy working outdoors, who bring relevant practical skills and are willing to regularly travel to different sites around Queensland as part of their work.
Forest Rangers at all levels use their initiative to support the resolution of operational issues that may impact the supply of State-owned quarry materials to industry.
When not in the field they work with colleagues to plan, authorise and monitor work activities and implement improvements to work procedures and practices.
The Department highly regards those with existing knowledge of relevant forestry standards, legislation, requirements and/or training or relevant studies but will consider all people with relevant skills and abilities in the application process.
If being part of a mobile, operationally focused team based in regional Queensland, working with stakeholders indoors and out, and monitoring field operations associated with State-owned quarry materials is for you, applications are now open at the links below:
