The Central Desert Group is committed to achieving the best native title outcomes for the Traditional Owners of the Central Desert region of Western Australia and to assisting our clients to use their traditional lands to fulfil their highest social, cultural and economic aspirations.

As part of the Central Desert Group, Desert Support Services Pty Ltd (DSS) provide a range of services that are geared towards supporting Aboriginal Corporations to achieve a sustainable and independent future, focusing on building capacity by empowering local and regional decision making.

About the role

This role is an exceptional opportunity to provide leadership and coordination to the Kiwirrkurra Men’s Ranger Team. Working closely with the Kiwirrkurra (IPA) Coordinator, the role will support a range of Indigenous land management activities on Kiwirrkurra country and beyond.

The Kiwirrkurra Indigenous Protected Area (IPA) and Ranger Team is a high achieving program with established partnerships, funding and projects. There are exceptional opportunities led by strong traditional owners.

The successful person will: 

  • Be a dynamic team player;
  • Have facilitation and multi-tasking skills;
  • Work effectively with Aboriginal people to achieve shared goals;
  • show appropriate initiative and work productively with limited supervision;
  • have experience in working alongside traditional owner ranger groups; and 
  • have excellent practical, problem solving, organisational, writing and inter-personal communication skills. 

The successful person will be based in our Alice Springs office and must be available to travel to remote desert communities. The position will require approximately two weeks per month field time throughout the field season.
