Lancaster City Council is looking for two energetic and motivated Outdoor Rangers to join the Public Realm department of Environmental Services. The roles involve working within some of the City Council’s most high profile parks and open spaces, including Happy Mount Park, Regent Park and Ryelands Park. The post holders must take pride in their work, have a practical nature, enjoy hands-on work and be happy to share their enthusiasm with visitors.
It is an essential requirement that you are confident in carrying out a variety of maintenance tasks and help overlook and ensure the appropriate use of Morecambe Promenade. The role involves carrying out regular inspections, enforcing byelaws where appropriate and managing visitors in a highly professional manner whilst delivering excellent customer service.

You will work safely with risk assessments and in compliance with safety procedures, facilitating improvements and efficiencies with the resources available to you in an increasingly challenging environment. The post holder needs to be able to handle the pressures of a busy park environment, whilst balancing day-to-day priorities.
With training you will help oversee one of the largest Splash Park’s in the North West and work with Seasonal Staff to ensure the cleanliness and safety of the facility and our visitors at all times.
There are two posts available:
37 hours per week, the parks are open from 8:00am until dusk, therefore, you will be required to work on a shift rota basis which will include evenings, weekends and bank holidays.
