NB18/29 Countryside Maintenance Officer
“An exciting opportunity has arisen to become part of the Countryside Maintenance Team, within the Outdoor Partnerships Team. You will work as part of the Service’s Maintenance Team to provide practical improvement works on the Public Rights of Way network and on a range of parks and greenspaces throughout Shropshire. You will be involved with surveying and negotiating practical works required and carrying out those works. You will also be working with and supporting various volunteer groups to carry out these tasks.
The role involves all aspects of maintaining gates, stiles, bridges, signposts, vegetation clearance and all other related tasks throughout the year, across Shropshire. You will also work with the team to deliver habitat management and access improvements to our council owned countryside sites. The service also has a contracting role to create income into the service where we deliver groundworks, path improvements, fencing and many other tasks to other departments or organisations.
If you have good practical countryside skills and have the passion to help manage Shropshire Council’s varied network of rights of way and greenspace, we want to hear from you.”
