If you love exploring our surrounding Tonto National Forest, apply soon for either of two new jobs that the Forest will post on Thursday of this week for two Forestry Technician Recreation OHV Patrollers to work from the Globe Ranger District office at 7680 Six Shooter Canyon Rd. How to apply? Step #1 is to create your own account at usajobs.gov, and then step #2 is to create a resume with USAJOBS or upload your existing resume into your new USAJOBS account. Both jobs should be posted July 22; when applying, search for either “22-TEMP1-R3-2330-5DT-KP” or “22-TEMP1-R3-5169-4DT-SB”, or search USAJOBS using either the position title (Forestry Technician) or the duty location city, which is “US/AZ-GLOBE.” Application deadline is July 29, with the new hires likely to start work on or after Sept. 9.
The new Forestry Technicians will have a variety of work in support of the Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) Recreation Program; job duties include ensuring that recreation areas and trails are operated, used and maintained in accordance with the Tonto’s recreation plan. New hires will also contact visitors and special use permit holders to provide information about recreation regulations, opportunities, and current restrictions -- and provide information about resource management practices in the area. New hires will also be expected to operate and maintain (in safe working order) their assigned vehicles, motorcycles, ATV and trail maintenance equipment and specialized equipment used. They’ll also assure recreation areas and trails are maintained in accordance with standards; construct and rehabilitate minor recreation facilities and trails; and identify and conduct maintenance and reconstruction of OHV routes “within the framework of existing planning documents.” Expect routine clerical tasks such as filing and copying documents in support of the program, too. Applicants may request more information about these jobs by contacting Recreation Management Specialist Sheryl Cormack by phone at 928-961-6965 or email at [email protected]
