Equipment & Field Coordinator
Location: Fairview, Alberta
Salary Range: $50,000 - $70,000
The Peace Country Beef & Forage Association is a non-profit producer 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 need a diligent and determined Equipment & Field Coordinator with a genuine desire to enrich the agriculture industry, to lead our fieldwork team, run our safety program, and keep our vehicles and equipment in tip top shape!
As the Equipment & Field Coordinator, you will coordinate and lead the activities of our summer research team in the field, lead the development and maintenance of safety protocols and orientations, prepare supplies and equipment for the field, and maintain vehicles and farm equipment in good working order. You will also have the opportunity to provide input on the development of agriculture research projects, and will gain practical experience in many aspects of the applied research process. And you will get to attend schools and field days put on by PCBFA for local farmers and agronomists, and listen to some great speakers!
The job will be fast-paced and diverse, and offers extensive opportunities for on-the-job education and networking. We offer custom benefits packages, tailored to each employee, as well as a flexible work environment.
Must have a valid driver’s license. Experience and comfort with operating and maintaining equipment such as tractors, ATVs, and zero-turn mowers is essential. Experience hauling such equipment with pick-up truck and trailer would be a significant asset. Experience with agriculture and/or research would also be considered an asset but is not necessary.
If you’re interested in joining our dynamic team, please send a resume to email@example.com, along with a short description (500 words or less) of why you think you would be a good fit for the role. Please reference the job title in the subject line.
