Trainee: Natural Resource Management or Agricultural Extension
- Are you passionate about making a difference to the Great Barrier Reef?
- Are you passionate about Agriculture?
- Are you looking to widen your industry experience?
This is your opportunity to be mentored by experienced experts to gain skills and experience to be able to support primary producers located throughout the Great Barrier Reef Catchments in improving their land management practices.
The Queensland Government has engaged the Queensland Farmers’ Federation (QFF) to facilitate an Agricultural Capacity Building Program. The program was developed in response to the Great Barrier Reef Water Science Taskforce report which calls for more effective, targeted and coordinated extension to support large-scale land management practice changes in the GBR Catchments.
The Agricultural Capacity Building Program will train up to six early career extension officers by enhancing their skills in delivering agricultural and NRM projects with landholders in the GBR Catchments. Trainees will be hosted by suitable organisations and receive mentoring from experienced advisors, participate in relevant training and expand their access to extension networks.
It is anticipated that the Trainees will develop expertise in one or more of the following areas: land management, water quality, soil health, and nutrient and pest management.
To apply you must review Position Description and follow the application process.
QFF supports equal opportunity employment and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders are encouraged to apply.
