Field officers are on the front line in national parks. They confer with project beneficiaries and support staff to evaluate uptake, pitfalls, and areas necessitating expansion. They do everything - from fighting fires and supervising pest programs, to maintaining walking tracks and overseeing bush regeneration.
Field officers typically need a bachelor’s degree, usually in a field such as business or finance.
Some officers may be able to enter the occupation without a bachelor’s degree if they have related work experience, such as experience in sales, customer service, or banking.
A great course to consider is the Certificate IV in Business.
