This is what it's like to work as a ranger in the Yorkshire Dales National Park

Candidates must be practically minded and have experience of upland path management techniques, ideally being able to operate small plant machinery.

The Three Peaks ranger often works alone or in small teams and must be prepared to complete tasks in all weathers.

The rangers are also a liaison point for farmers, landowners and visitors, and must be able to successfully engage with all groups.

They are expected to supervise and motivate volunteers as part of the Three Peaks Project.
