Ellis Bird Farm is looking for post-secondary students for the 2019 season. We require a Site Operations Assistant and 2-3 Site Services Assistants. We make an effort to hire local students, so anyone interested is encouraged to submit a cover letter and resume by January 31 to firstname.lastname@example.org. The successful applicant must be a full-time post-secondary student intending to return to full-time studies in the fall.
The Site Operations Assistant will have a wide range of tasks and responsibilities relating to the gardens and landscaping including involvement in developing pollinator-friendly landscaping, tree and garden planting and maintenance, weed control, and development and installation of new landscaping features.
The Site Services Assistant(s) will be involved in the day-to-day workings of the Ellis Bird Farm public operations. The students will be responsible for developing and presenting our programs and offerings to a wide range of audiences in various formats, assisting with the running of our Visitor Centre, and logging and relaying marketing and site-routine records.
