If you are looking for a new career, the job of Katherine's snake catcher has been advertised.
The NT Government has issued a tender for the provision of an all hours snake call out service for Katherine for a year.
The current contract ends this year.
"The Territory government is encouraging private enterprise through permitting the capture and removal of snakes from domestic residences and small businesses," the tender reads.
"These snakes can be kept, made available to the market place or released back into the wild again away from capture site and into appropriate habitat."
Our snake catcher will need the appropriate wildlife permits and is expected to liaise closely with Parks and Wildlife "and continue to deliver the branch's message of Living with Wildlife".
The tender documents say snakes are a feature of living in the Territory.
"This presents a high likelihood of intrusion into workplaces and homes by snakes. In light of this, the Government, in particular Parks and Wildlife, has provided an all-hours call-out service to remove snakes in Darwin, Katherine and Alice Springs."
The tender also says the economic value of snakes across Australia lend themselves to the creation of a viable commercial operation in this area.
"It also creates an opportunity for the private enterprise to offer other complimentary services e.g. snake awareness and snake handling courses to the public."
An important note for any intending snake catcher.
"All persons performing the call-out services shall have a current first aid certificate and access to reasonable first aid facilities provided by the contractor."
Meanwhile, Power and Water is offering for sale some safes at the Government offices in First Street.
"The goods will be available to the successful tenderer for collection from Monday to Friday between 8am and 4pm.
"Tenderer will need to provide their own lifting equipment (i.e. trolley jack to get them out of the shopfront and then a forklift to put them onto a truck)."
The tender is for three large safes and one small digital combination safe.
