Assistant Field Team Leader

GreenCollar is looking for full time Assistant Field Team Leaders to join our teams in NSW, QLD and WA. Our teams work in remote locations where they carry out vegetation surveys for native forest protection and regeneration carbon projects.

Successful applicants will work one 12-day field trip and four office days per month. You’ll play a supporting role for your Team Leader and your team – helping to plan each day’s work in the field, ensuring the data collected is high quality and that trips are running safely and efficiently.

It is important that all applicants understand that conditions can be mentally and physically challenging at times due to weather, the terrain, limited accommodation facilities and limited communication in remote areas. If you like camping and are ok with things being a little rough around the edges, then you’ll be just fine!

Expect to see unforgettable sunsets, stunning outback locations, country pubs and many native animals. You’ll get to meet our landholder partners and gain skills in plant identification, environmental survey work and technical off-road driving, and bond with a team of like-minded colleagues.

More about the role:

Field trips are typically 12 days long in teams of 2 – 8 and involve:

  • Plant species identification and measurement.
  • Navigating through the bush on foot and in 4WD vehicles.
  • Driving long distances and driving off-road.
  • Assisting the Team Leader with admin tasks on a trip.
  • Data quality and completeness checks.
  • Assisting in the training of team members.
  • Equipment maintenance and calibration.
  • Camping onsite on project properties, often without running water, electricity, or mobile coverage.
  • Compliance with regulatory requirements and internal risk practices at all times.
  • Working closely with other team members for extended periods.

Office work involves data processing as well as some mapping tasks.

In NSW, transport will be provided from Sydney or Dubbo. In QLD, transport is provided from Brisbane. In WA, transport is provided from Perth or Carnarvon.

Accommodation, meals and equipment are provided, along with training. A good attitude is the most important thing you can bring to this role.

About you:

  • Proven leadership experience from other roles or life experiences.
  • Experience working with a team of people in the outdoors.
  • Unrestricted Class C drivers’ licence.
  • Good level of fitness.
  • Desire to work outdoors, to work hard, and to be accepting of all weather conditions and terrain.
  • A passion for the environment and sustainability with consistent behaviours to match.
  • Positive can-do attitude and the ability to work well in a team.
  • Ability to work away from home regularly and for extended periods.

Desired skills and attributes:

  • Experience in outdoor work.
  • Knowledge of Australian plants.
  • 4WD experience or qualifications.
  • Ability to drive manual vehicles.
  • Current valid senior first aid and CPR qualifications.
  • Wilderness or Remote First Aid qualifications.
