About Cape York NRM

Cape York Natural Resource Management (Cape York NRM) is a not-for-profit organisation that works to encourage voluntary adoption of improved natural resource management across all land tenures and land uses on Cape York. We focus on achieving positive outcomes for the people of Cape York through the coordination and delivery of high-quality programs that meet the standards of both government and commercial clients.

Cape York NRM is a member of the North Queensland NRM Alliance (the Alliance) with Terrain NRM and Northern Gulf Resource Management Group. The Alliance aims to deliver more effective NRM services through sharing resources, delivering cross regional projects and collectively operates across all of Far North Qld.

Our staff work with land and sea managers, traditional custodians, agricultural producers, graziers and ranger groups on a wide variety of programs that enhance Cape York's terrestrial, marine and freshwater ecosystems. This supports work that addresses a range of issues including agricultural productivity, fire management and climate change. In addition, we work to address threats to the environment, culture and communities, including loss of threatened species and managing invasive species, such as feral pigs and weeds.
The Water Quality Project Coordinator will work with relevant project staff, land trusts and land managers to deliver projects aimed at improving water quality through erosion control and mitigation, revegetation and to increase landholder capacity to deliver these projects throughout Cape York.

About this role
The Water Quality Project Coordinator will work with relevant project staff, land trusts and land managers to deliver projects aimed at improving water quality through erosion control and mitigation, revegetation and to increase landholder capacity to deliver these projects throughout Cape York.

A core requirement of the project is the delivery of the Normanby Basin Gully Remediation Demonstration Site on the eastern Cape. The project aims to build broader community knowledge and capacity in relation to erosion control, and to increase job readiness of the participants through training in earthworks and machinery operation.

The Coordinator will work closely with land managers, relevant Indigenous organisations, contracted engineers, and the Department of Environment and Science, to organise and ensure delivery of cultural heritage clearances, training events, materials, and earthmoving contracts to complete training and on-ground works. The coordinator will also work with Griffith University staff to coordinate the installation and retrieval of monitoring equipment, organise the training of participants, and ensure completion of earthworks.
