About BCWF and Wetlands Workforce (WW)
The B.C. Wildlife Federation is British Columbia's leading conservation organization. As a province-wide member-driven charitable organization, with over 43,000 members and more than 100 member clubs, our organization represents the interests of all British Columbians who aim to protect, enhance and promote the wise use of the environment for the benefit of present and future generations.
We are pleased to announce this exciting opportunity for you to join our team and make a BIG impact on watershed and wetland health in B.C. The Wetlands Workforce (WW) project will deploy work pods in the field to support the maintenance, monitoring and inventory of restored wetland sites across B.C., engage in planning activities related to the restoration of future wetland restoration sites and inventory of natural wetland sites for the development of better wetland management tools. The WW Project is supported through the Province of BC's economic stimulus fund to provide temporary employment for a minimum of 100 people. Work pod activities will be supported in part by direct employment as well as multiple sub-contracts provided to partnering conservation organizations across the Province.
The BCWF is hiring several positions for the Wetlands Workforce project. Other positions include:
Other positions may also come open throughout early 2021. Interested parties can see all available current postings at https://bcwf.bc.ca/current-opportunities/.
Applicants will first be considered for the position for which they have applied. If the applicant's experience is suitable for one of the above roles, they may be invited to interview for this role in addition to or in lieu of the role applied for.
This is a full-time, contracted position starting from hiring date and ending December 15, 2021. Occasional evenings, weekends and/or extended hours may be required to accommodate activities and events. At the current time, there is no clear opportunity for extension as this is a one-time fund.
You will be expected to primarily work remotely (e.g., home office), collaborating virtually with BCWF's team, partners, funders and First Nations communities. Travel to our Surrey office and around the province during the field season may be required. Applicants living outside of the Lower Mainland, but in British Columbia, will be considered.
