Description

THE POSITION

The purpose of this recruitment is to fill a current vacancy in the Sanitary Sewer/Storm Drainage Systems Division, as well as establish an eligibility list for future vacancies. Initial position and salary of the selected candidate will be based on previous work experience and valid licenses/certificates.

Applications submitted for this recruitment will not be used for the Utilities Maintenance Worker I/II: Water Distribution Assignment or any other recruitment. You must submit a separate application and supplemental questionnaire for each recruitment.

IDEAL CANDIDATE

The City of Woodland is looking to fill multiple Utilities Maintenance Worker I/II positions in the Public Works Sanitary Sewer/Storm Drainage Systems Division. The Ideal Candidate for the current vacancy is someone who has a good understanding of all aspects of underground sewer/stormwater maintenance and repairs, and is familiar with the operation of light and heavy equipment.

Positions in this class are flexibly staffed and are normally filled by advancement from the I level, or by candidates with prior work experience elsewhere.

All Utilities Maintenance Worker I/II will operate equipment and vehicles with possession of all necessary licenses and certificates, utilize proper safety precautions related to all performed work and comply with the policies and procedures in the department Injury & Illness Prevention Program (IIPP).
