Posted 4 days ago

Do you prefer to spend your days outside, working in the woods, rather than stuck behind a desk or in a cubicle? Are you currently enrolled in an environmental studies program and looking for related work experience? All Habitat Services is an ecological services firm specializing in the management and remediation of invasive species within the environment. One day you can be in the forested hills of Northeastern Connecticut, hiking through the woods with a backpack. The next day you can be operating our MarshMaster through the tidal coastline at the mouth of the Connecticut River. We are seeking hardworking, motivated individuals to join our team for the upcoming season. We are looking for technicians who can start in April or May and work through August or September. Dates are flexible depending on applicant availability. We have positions available in Vegetation, Aquatic and Mosquito management. While these positions are typically seasonal roles, there may be opportunities for year-round employment.

As a Technician you will apply herbicides, algaecides and biological controls under the direction of a certified supervisor. You will be required to read and follow detailed directions and read and understand pesticide labels, Safety Data Sheets, and common hazardous pesticide signal words. Depending on your assignment, you may be asked to operate some, or all of, the following: trucks and/or tow trailers, boats, tracked all-terrain vehicles, UTVs, tractors, and application equipment. You will be working outside in all types of weather conditions and will be exposed to varying levels of physical activity such as long periods of standing, walking, hiking over uneven terrain, crouching, and heavy lifting up to 50 lbs. You may also be required to work extended hours periodically, including travel time to and from job sites.

All Habitat Services is an Equal Opportunity Employer committed to inclusion and diversity. We also take affirmative action to offer employment and advancement opportunities to all applicants, including minorities, women, protected veterans, and individuals with disabilities.
