Part Time - Term (4 Months)

Location: Fairview, AB

Number of Positions: 1

 

The Peace Country Beef & Forage Association is a non-profit, producer run group that strives to provide leading edge, credible, and locally viable information to Peace Country producers, through our applied research and extension programs.  We inspire and empower innovation in agriculture, and move forward the agriculture industry in the Peace, by enhancing its environmental, social, and economic sustainability.

 

We are currently searching for an organized and efficient Administrative Assistant to provide support to our team during the busy summer and fall months.

 

 As the Admin Assistant, you will work primarily with our Extension Team on the coordination of workshops, pasture walks, field days, farm tours, and other events.  You will also provide some much-needed office support and keep our team organized and on track. 

 

You will gain exposure to the full spectrum of agriculture research and extension – from the inception of ideas all the way through to transferring knowledge to producers.  You will also get the opportunity to attend schools and field days put on by PCBFA for local farmers and agronomists, and listen to some great speakers!  

 

The position will start as soon as possible, and is for an initial term of at least 4 months, with the possibility of transitioning into an ongoing role.  Days and hours of work are flexible, in the range of 10-20 hours per week. 

 

If you’re interested in joining our dynamic team, please send a resume to our Executive Director, Liisa Jeffrey, at liisa@pcbfa.ca.

 

Applications will remain open until a suitable candidate is found.

Thank you for your interest in Peace Country Beef & Forage Association!
