New staff looking forward to working with landholders

Western Local Land Services have welcomed two highly credentialed employees to its team, with both to be working in a hands-on capacity with landholders and community members predominantly in the south-west of NSW.

In November, Karin Sluiter joined the organisation as a Land Services Officer while Lynda Holley joined as a Biosecurity Officer.

Ms Sluiter is based in Buronga while Ms Holley is based in Wentworth, meaning the two will predominantly work in the south-west of NSW, however as required they will work in other parts of the Western region.

In her role as a Land Services Officer, Ms Sluiter will work with landholders, community members and stakeholders in a number of areas including biodiversity, threatened species and riparian, soil, land and weed management.

Ms Holley will also work extensively with landholders in a range of areas including the management of pest animals, diseases and weeds, all of which are highly important for any landholder and community member in the Western region.

Western Local Land Services Local Community Manager, Steve McGlashan was pleased to welcome two new staff into his team that are highly qualified and eager to get into their roles.

“It is always pleasing to have such strong candidates apply for a role as you know they will offer great service to our customers and stakeholders,” Mr McGlashan said.

“Both Karin and Lynda have settled in well and have enjoyed meeting local landholders who they will be working closely with.  

“We are looking forward to them continuing to develop these relationships and start managing their own projects that will offer landholders and community members the opportunity to achieve great outcomes.”

Landholders can contact Ms Sluiter in the Buronga office on (03) 5051 9459 and Ms Holley in the Wentworth office on (03) 5027 3064.
