Position: Field Services Specialist
Organization: Recycle BC
Location: Vancouver, BC
A key member of the dynamic and independent Field Services team, the Field Services Specialist will provide support to the Recycle BC program to ensure the operational policies and practices established by Recycle BC are clearly communicated, understood and followed in the field, resulting in greater overall efficiency and effectiveness and leading to increased collection and diversion. This role reports to the Manager, Collection Quality and Development.
As a field services position, this role requires travel within Metro Vancouver and the Sunshine Coast primarily, with occasional overnight travel to other areas of the province to conduct site inspections and meet with collection and processing partners. The Recycle BC office is located in North Vancouver, though being a field based position, the successful applicant would be expected to work from a home-based office while not on the road. This position is best suited to applicants based out of the Metro Vancouver area, who will find the travel requirements less demanding and be able to do the majority of travel as day-trips from a home-based office.
This is primarily an independent role which requires the ability to prioritize and coordinate on a continuous basis.
This role requires a valid BC driver’s license and access to a vehicle in good condition.
