JOB POSTING

Position: Agronomist / Plant Ecologist
Organization: Ducks Unlimited Canada
Location: Winnipeg, Manitoba

The Opportunity

Native Plant Solutions (NPS), a consulting branch of Ducks Unlimited Canada, is looking for a confident, energetic and dedicated Agronomist/Plant Ecologist to join our team.

NPS provides environmental services and on-the-ground expertise in upland and wetland ecosystems to industry, land developers and government agencies. Working with a multi-faceted team of professionals, you will lead the development and implementation of native grass upland reclamation, remediation and applied services and projects to our clients.

You need to be an enthusiastic team player – a self-starter who can work with anyone, is capable of seeing the bigger picture and enjoys thinking out of the box.

This position requires expertise in plant ecology, agronomy, heavy equipment use, and upland reclamation practices. Candidates must be comfortable working in the field and coping with variable weather conditions as a substantial portion of your time will be spent working outdoors during the growing season.

You possess strong technical writing and presentation skills, and are an organized entrepreneur with the ability to work independently or as part of a project team. You are considered a true leader with visionary qualities who prides themselves on meeting deadlines and delivering quality results in a complex and changing environment.

Your three to five years of experience in the agricultural field and advanced knowledge of upland plant ecology makes you the ideal candidate for this position, located at our Native Plant Solutions office in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Requirements

  • A undergraduate or graduate degree in Agriculture, Agroecology, Plant Science, Soil Science, Plant Ecology or a related discipline (a diploma combined with CCA accreditation and five years of progressive forage establishment experience will also be considered).
  • Experience in planning and project management.
  • Ability to foster key business relationships.
  • Previous experience working with budgets.
  • Excellent communication skills, both written and oral.
  • Ability to operate heavy machinery (tractors, ATV’s).
  • Must possess or obtain a pesticide applicators license.
