Hiring: Eco-Landscaping Lead
Company: RAINscapeTO | Other positions
Location: Toronto, Ontario
Are you looking for meaningful landscaping work that pays well and brings you closer to nature within the city? Would you like to work with like-minded individuals? If yes, then we want to hear from you!
At RAINscapeTO you will help lead an eco-landscaping team that designs, implements, and maintains beautiful earth-friendly gardens. Every day, you will be helping to build a sustainable and healthy urban landscape through the installation of sustainable native gardens such as bioswales and pollinator, edible and rain gardens. For more information visit: rainscapeto.ca
You will be part of a growing social enterprise that provides meaningful, culturally sensitive employment and training for emerging urban-placed Indigenous people. We aim to continue to support the intrinsic connection we have as Indigenous peoples to the land. Caring for the urbanized environment within Toronto while sharing and nurturing our rich ecological knowledge is imperative for us.
As an Eco-Landscaping Lead, you’ll have the management team’s support in leading the Indigenous Eco-Landscaping Crew. You’ll have opportunities to share what you know with your team members and learn from local Indigenous community leaders and experts. We’ll even help you build a career pathway that’s right for you!
Our ideal candidate has strong horticultural skills, leadership, and interpersonal skills to deliver excellent customer service and oversee their crew, and has experience in the design and construction of landscaping solutions.
Given that the incumbent of this position will oversee a team of Indigenous trainees, we enthusiastically encourage qualified Indigenous candidates to apply. We also encourage applications from BIPOC individuals.
The Eco-landscaping Lead is the bridge between a team of Eco-landscapers and RAINscapeTO’s Management. As the team supervisor the Lead acts as the main resource for all the eco-landscapers with regard to on-site communication, direction, and conflict resolution. In the absence of the Manager, the Eco-landscaping Lead also liaises with clients and partners, although some decisions will need to be approved by the Manager.
