About the vacancy

An exciting opportunity to work in a progressive Parks and Countryside Service in a dynamic Local Authority on the Yorkshire Coast. You will play a key role on the ground in delivering the Council’s Restoration Plan for the Cinder Track, a 36km shared use trail along a disused railway line between the Borough’s two main resorts.

The council is recruiting a permanent Ranger post to repair, maintain and enhance the track to maintain the integrity and accessibility of the track, aligned to the Council’s Restoration Plan.

The successful candidate will work closely with other officers and Partners before, during and after these and any further capital schemes, to ensure that the investment in the track is appropriately sustained.

The applicant

The role will suit a dynamic self-starter who can work on their own initiative to establish and carry out a long term maintenance and renewals programme. You will relish working with local communities, volunteers and partner organisations, acting as an ambassador for the Council and our Partners.

Maintenance of the track will require you to carefully balance needs of users, local communities and the route’s ecology and heritage value while address its multi-use nature. Promotion of the track will contribute to the Authority’s green recovery and carbon reduction aspirations by enabling a wider range of users and visitors to access the route both for recreation and utility use, such as getting to school, work or local services.

To be successful in this role you will be an achievement-focused self-starter, always aiming to go above and beyond. You will demonstrate strong customer-focused values, a practical, problem-solving flair and good communication skills through a wide range of media. You will be competent in a range of practical countryside management skills, using appropriate tools and machinery, able to carry out work to a high standard. 

If you want to challenge yourself in this interesting role as our Cinder Track Maintenance Ranger, then we want to hear from you!


Interviews will be held via Microsoft Teams on 11 - 12 February.

If candidates have not heard from us by this date, they have unfortunately been unsuccessful.
