Invasive Plant Council of BC Project Manager and Coordinator Positions

We are currently hiring for two full time positions, Project Manager and Project Coordinator, under the ‘Stop the Spread’ program, which includes on the ground operations focused on containing, controlling, and inventorying invasive plants identified as high priority in each region of BC.

The term for each position is 6 to 12 months depending on funding approval. The successful applicants will work together with IPC staff and project partners to provide overall coordination of program delivery across the province.

Project Manager Position

Please see attached a detailed job description for the advertised Project Manager position. To emphasize, the successful candidate must be a self-motivated, highly organized individual capable of working independently, with minimal supervision, under critical timelines. Strong interpersonal skills and practical field skills are an absolute.

This position is not restricted to a specific area of the province (location will be determined by location of successful applicant). The majority of the tasks outlined in this position are office-based, though the successful candidate must be willing to travel and undertake field-work as and when needed. Office space will be determined upon hiring, and could be a home-based option.

Project Coordinator Position

A formal job description has not been developed for the Project Coordinator position as many of the skills and qualifications mirror those of the Project Manager. As such, please refer to the attached Project Manager description for an overview of the Stop the Spread program and general tasks to be accomplished. The Project Coordinator salary is negotiable based on experience and the proposed start date is July 1st, 2009.

The Project Coordinator will work closely with the Project Manager to ensure successful delivery of the Stop the Spread program. The Project Coordinator will be tasked with the more detailed side of operational roll out and regional work plan completion (site checks, etc.). Key tasks will include (but are not limited to) sourcing and distributing field equipment for regional IP Action Crews, liaising with regional coordinators to ensure quality control and completion of regional projects, and assisting in regional operations as and when needed.

This position is not restricted to a specific area of the province (location will be determined by location of successful applicant). It is expected that this position will have a larger field component than the Project Manager position, and as such the successful candidate must be willing to travel and undertake field-work as and when needed. Office space will be determined upon hiring, and could be a home-based option.
