Great Smoky Mountains seeking candidates for ranger positions

Great Smoky Mountains National Park is seeking candidates for two permanent, full-time GL-9 protection ranger positions in the Oconaluftee and Cataloochee areas. Both positions are located within the South District in North Carolina.

Great Smoky Mountains National Park rangers participate in the full spectrum of frontcountry and backcountry emergency services operations, including law enforcement, SAR, EMS and wildland fire. Each of these areas offers unique opportunities to develop and maintain a broad set of ranger skills. There may be opportunities for advanced training, including participation in the FTEP program.

Affordable housing is available in Swain, Jackson and Haywood Counties (North Carolina). These communities offer dozens of churches, schools, grocery stores and other amenities. Asheville, North Carolina, is less than an hour’s drive from the park and offers even more services.

Candidates who possess a type I or type II NPS law enforcement commission are eligible to apply. Applications will be accepted until close of business July 6th. For more information, please click here.

Enter to win more than $25,000 in cash and prizes at Sierra Trading Post. Contest ends July 25, 2011.
