HIGHLAND Council hopes to appoint nine seasonal rangers to be the 'eyes and ears' of the authority on the ground.
In a job advertised on myjobscotland.gov.uk a spokesman for the authority said the post holder will promote the Scottish Outdoor Access Code as well as contributing to its visitor management plan.
The advert reads: "We are looking for people to act as the eyes and ears for various council services and to work in co-operation with other organisations, landowners and communities.
"The job will cover sites owned and/or managed by the council and other partners, to promote the Scottish Outdoor Access Code and to contribute to the visitor management plan in response to the expected high visitor pressure as we emerge from the Covid –19 lockdown.
"The key role is working with visitors and residents providing on hand communication and advice; talking with people in clear, positive and persuasive ways to encourage responsiber teams.
"A vehicle will be provided for patrolling the assigned area only, but there will be no office base. Post holders need to be adaptable and flexible with the job description as we need to be reactive to changes in visitor use through the season as well as our partner organisations."
It continued: "Seven posts will be for six months and two posts will be for four months. The locations will be:
Skye, Lochaber, Ross and Lochalsh, Ross and Assynt, Sutherland, Caithness East, and Sutherland and Ross.
