The Dublin Mountains Partnership (DMP) is currently looking to recruit Volunteer Rangers. The DMP has been established to improve the recreation potential of the public lands in the Dublin Mountains while at the same time balancing the needs and requirements of the various land owning organisations.
Volunteers should ideally live in or close to the Dublin Mountains. Whilst they come from all walks of life, volunteers have one thing in common – a love of the Dublin Mountains and the enthusiasm to help in its management. The DMP are seeking self-motivated, outgoing people who are able to communicate to a wide and varied audience. Candidates should have a reasonable level of fitness and enjoy meeting and working with people, providing assistance in a polite and constructive manner. While no formal qualifications are required candidates must have a love of outdoor recreation and an interest in natural history. Any previous experience of volunteering would be advantageous. Candidates must be over 18 years old, there is no maximum age limit.
Candidates are asked to commit a minimum of 2 days a month to Volunteer Ranger duties (weekends or weekdays). Demand for these positions is high and consequently the DMP are looking for commitment to volunteering with the Service in the long term. Candidates will need your own transport to get to and from meeting points and will be provided with training over a 6 month period, commencing with an induction weekend.
