Are you the One?
We need your skills!
The Centre for Indigenous Environmental Resources (CIER) invites applicants for the position of Biodiversity Associate.
The successful candidate will be keen to join our team to support project implementation in the areas of biodiversity, Species at Risk and community communication. The role of Biodiversity Associate is best suited for an individual that is able to work closely and collaboratively in a team setting but is also a motivated self-starter in accomplishing project work. We love people with ideas and the willingness and commitment to try to solve problems. Although the bulk of your work will be related to biodiversity and community communication (75%), you will support other CIER projects (25%) as well. Please check out our website to get a feel for the type of work CIER is doing.
As a national First Nation directed environmental non-profit organization with charitable status, CIER’s mission is to work in partnership with Indigenous nations to support and build sustainable Indigenous communities and a healthy environment. Our work focuses on the many aspects of building sustainable communities and protecting lands and waters. CIER is very interested in people with a background that reflects decolonization and community empowerment, and whom are comfortable working with a team with people of diverse ethnicities, backgrounds, and experiences. As an organisation, we support and work towards reconciliation with Indigenous Nations and non-Indigenous allies. We are a team of like-minded individuals who strive to build environmental capacity in and with Indigenous community partners. CIER personnel most often work in a virtual office setting (so you do not need to move to take this position, as long as you have good internet access) and we offer flex work arrangements. This position might include travelling to remote communities (when it is safe to do so).
Nice to Have
Given the virtual nature of CIERs work, the successful candidate must have access to a secure and reliable internet connection and a laptop with fully functional WIFI capability. A valid class 5 license is required.
Salary is commensurate with qualifications and is negotiable. Although preference will be given to Indigenous applicants (including First Nations, Métis and Inuit), all qualified candidates are encouraged to apply (please identify yourself in the cover letter).
If you are interested in this position, please forward your resume and a brief cover letter to CIER c/o email@example.com . If you do not have access to email you are invited to either fax your resume (866-288-3919) or mail it directly to us at PO Box 26092, RPO Maryland, Winnipeg, MB R3G 3R3.
Closing Date for Applications: May 27, 2022.
We thank all applicants for their interest, however only those candidates selected for interviews will be contacted.
