Wanted: CEO and part-time croc wrangler
Take a ride on the wilder side of life and sign up for crocs, buffalo and the ultimate job – park manager of Kakadu National Park.
This is the top job and it’s not for the faint-hearted. You’ll run a complex business, a World-Heritage listed landscape of some 20,000 square kilometres and play host to the world as it arrives on your front doorstep.
Kakadu National Park has been home to Bininj/Mungguy for thousands of years and is a place of enormous cultural significance and ecological and biological diversity.
You’ll work side-by-side with Kakadu’s Aboriginal Traditional owners to understand and work towards their vision.
You’ll be responsible for managing a team of up to 75 staff.
You’ll liaise with people from all walks of life, manage our day-to-day operations, bring in the cash and get us five star reviews on Trip Advisor.
You’ll use every lesson you’ve learnt, every skerrick of drive and every ounce of experience you have.
Think Game of Thrones. You’re a Stark, you’re warden of the north (though winter never comes).
Kakadu is the jewel in the crown of Australia’s tourism industry and when you’re standing in it, it’s not hard to see why.
With the Ranger uranium mine set to close in 2021, the community is at a turning point. We need you to take the buffalo by the horns, work closely with the joint Board of Management, lead a dedicated team and enrich this iconic World Heritage listed park.
We dare you.
