The National Park Service (NPS) is looking for a qualified candidate to fill the role of Supervisory Park Ranger at the Virgin Islands National Park. If going to work at a breathtaking island paradise sounds like the perfect day at the office, you could be a good fit.

Virgin Islands National Park on St. John's Island is home to pristine, white sand beaches, sparkling turquoise waters, foliage-covered hills, lush forest and a rich variety of wildlife.

According to the official job listing, you would be responsible for assisting in setting park policy, analyzing operations, identifying issues and recommending and developing management direction, objectives and goals.

You would be the leader of educational and visitor services, as well as be responsible for overseeing the park's volunteers.

On the informative side of things, you'd be expected to develop, plan and interpret media, public information and educational materials as well as manage and maintain the park's website.

This is a permanent, full-time position with a pay range from $79,363-$103,176 per year.

You may be expected to occasionally travel in this position and would be required to live and work from the Virgin Islands. If you aren't already located there, however, you could be eligible to be compensated and reimbursed for relocating.

This position requires you to be a U.S. citizen in order for consideration, as well as pass a background check. You'll also be required to operate a government vehicle and submit a driving record.

Qualified candidates will have at least a year of experience in a similar field, such as teaching in a park or historic site, being a park ranger, or developing educational programs.

You can apply to this job up until August 9, or until they receive 100 applications for the position. You can apply by submitting through the NPS' official job listing online.
