Tarawera pine control crew members wanted

If you are fit, reliable, have outdoor bush craft and preferably tree felling qualifications and experience, then Ruawahia 2B Trust, in partnership with the Department of Conservation would like to hear from you.

Up to two crew members are needed for at least 12 weeks over summer, to assist with wilding pine control on Mount Tarawera.

The work can be strenuous and involves pine removal using chainsaws and hand-pulling. The crew will be based/living in a work/base camp from Mon-Thurs each week, with food provided. Compulsory drug testing will be conducted as part of the recruitment process.

This is part of an on-going project to help restore the mana of the maunga through the removal of wilding pines.  The philosophy of the project is to use staff preferably of Ngati Rangitihi descent to undertake this work and use the project to up-skill and connect with the maunga.

Shortlisted applicants may be invited to attend an interview in early Jan 2016.
