Roll out the bunting! Grab your coffee – in a reuseable cup of course! Plant a coastal shrub! Contribute to a beach clean-up event! Why? Because we are celebrating.
The coastal strip of the NAR is extremely important to the NAR community. Whether you are living on the coast or 200km inland, most of the population of the NAR have some connection to our coastal environments.
For this reason, I am very excited to announce that we have made some progress towards re-building our award winning Coastal and Marine program, with the announcement this week of a new Coastcare Support Officer vacancy at NACC NRM.
The Coastcare Support Officer role will be based in one of the NAR coastal communities but will provide support to coastal communities and schools throughout the region. This part-time position is certainly going to have their work cut out for them with over 600km of coastline and many, many passionate community groups who we know will appreciate this support.
Some of the main responsibilities of this role will include coordinating public events and school visits to educate young people on coastal processes, writing grant applications, contributing to community events, and producing media content to support the delivery of NARvis – the NAR NRM Plan.
Above all, we are looking for a Coastcare professional who is passionate about conserving our pristine coastline though education, community engagement and strategic project delivery and is able to demonstrate their personal commitment to NACC NRM’s values – passion, collaboration, respect, excellence, leadership, accountability and professionalism.
The NACC NRM Board is very excited to be able to re-invest in the NAR through this role which we know is sorely missed by the community.
Anyone interested in the role should have a look at the full job description on our website www.nacc.com.au/jobs or call the NACC NRM office on 08 9938 0100.
Applications will close Monday 10 February, 10am WST.
