Job Opening: Part-Time Restoration Landscaping Specialist

By on March 21, 2011 in News

The Ojai Valley Land Conservancy is seeking to fill a part-time position on our habitat restoration team. The Restoration Landscaping Specialist is responsible for the installation and maintenance of native plants on OVLC preserves. Daily activities include site preparation, weed management, planting, irrigation, and erosion control work. This position is also responsible for assisting in the care of plants at the OVLC’s own native plant nursery and coordinating with a volunteer nursery manager. Occasionally, this position assists the Preserve Manager on routine preserve management and maintenance projects such as trail work and sign installation. This position can be physically demanding as the work may be in remote locations, in challenging weather conditions (heat and cold), require the use of hand tools for long periods, and require the lifting of materials commonly used in the restoration field. The formal job description lists the essential physical tasks associated with the position and their anticipated frequency.

 This is a part-time position consisting of 3 days each week. There is a possibility that the position could gain hours or become a full-time position in the fall depending on grant funding and finding the best candidate for this position. The best candidates will have landscaping experience, good communication skills, genuine interest in project success, ability to be self-directed in meeting top priorities, and pride in their work. The OVLC staff is a committed team and invites similarly motivated people to apply for this position.

 Compensation for this position is offered in a range from $13/hr – $15/hr based on experience and demonstrated skills. 

Please see the attached links for a formal job description and application form. Interested people can submit a completed application via U.S. mail, fax, or email. See contact information below. Top candidates based on the applications received by April 1, 2011 will be invited for interviews. If a suitable candidate is not found, additional applications will be accepted.
