About our Program
We are an environmentally- friendly sterile insect release program for one of the biggest pests of apple and pear trees-the codling moth. Our Program breeds and sterilizes codling moths at our state-of-the-art facility in Osoyoos, and we release them into orchards where they mate with wild moths to prevent the population from reproducing. We are currently seeking hardworking, motivated individuals to join the team at our facility in Osoyoos BC.
You are active and like to work with your hands. You have an eye for detail, follow instructions to the letter, and you keep your work area very clean. You don’t mind working at the same tasks each day—you like to challenge yourself to see how precise and fast you can get at doing those tasks! You like working as part of a team that functions like a well-oiled machine, and your former co-workers would call you “a pleasure to work with.”
About The Position
Working on the diet production line is an important role in our facility. You will set the stage for producing a few million high quality moths that will make a big difference this summer for our farmers, our local apple crops, and our environment. This position is a full-time, term position. You’ll get a paid half an hour lunch break, as well as paid coffee breaks. You’ll work 10 hour days, Monday-Thursday, leaving you three day weekends all summer long.
Basic Duties Include:
If you live in the Osoyoos area and are looking to work with a great team and make a positive difference in the environment this summer, then we want to hear from you! To apply, please submit a resume along with two references to firstname.lastname@example.org.
