Call for Cos­sack care­tak­ers

Pilbara News - - News - ■ Ali­cia Perera

Aus­tralian his­tory buffs take note — colo­nial-era ghost town Cos­sack is in need of two new care­tak­ers.

Ad­ver­tise­ments for one full-time care­taker and one part-time as­sis­tant care­taker in Cos­sack, both on 12month con­tracts, were posted on on­line job boards last Wed­nes­day night.

The aban­doned pearling town is a pop­u­lar City of Kar­ratha tourist site and care­tak­ers, who are the only two of­fi­cial res­i­dents, bear sole re­spon­si­bil­ity for main­tain­ing its his­toric build­ings.

The roles are hard to come by and usu­ally highly sought af­ter.

The ad­vert lists main the care­taker du­ties as man­ag­ing Cos­sack’s build­ings and sur­round­ings to a high stan­dard and pro­vid­ing se­cu­rity.

Both roles re­quire work­ers to live in the town.

Ap­pli­ca­tions are open un­til Thurs­day, Jan­uary 28.
