New jobs in Highland as Council prepares for a busy season ahead

The Highland Council is advertising for ten seasonal access rangers and eight seasonal waste management staff to assist with the management of visitors to the area over the summer months.

The Highland Council has agreed a Visitor Management Plan to meet the growth in visitors to the Highlands of Scotland and these jobs are part of that Plan

The Access Rangers will have an important role acting as the eyes and ears for various Council services and will work closely with other organisations, landowners and local communities. The job will cover sites owned and/or managed by the Council and other partners, to promote the Scottish Outdoor Access Code and to contribute to the Visitor Management Plan in response to the expected high visitor pressure as we emerge from the Covid 19 lockdown.

The Rangers will be working with visitors and residents providing advice and doing all they can encourage responsible outdoor access. They will cover Skye, Lochaber, SW Ross & Lochalsh, NW Ross, NW Sutherland, Caithness, E Sutherland & Ross and Inner Moray Firth.

The eight seasonal waste management staff will be employed to enhance the cleanliness standard of popular tourism areas of Highland, their duties will ensure litter bins are emptied more frequently and the hotspot areas are kept clear of litter and refuse as much as possible.
