EMPLOYER: Lake Windermere Ambassadors

JOB TITLE: Program Coordinator

Application Deadline: May 12, 2017

Are you passionate about working with diverse audiences to maintain the integrity of watersheds in B.C. and Canada? Do you have experience working independently and managing concurrent projects? Is advancing strong watershed leadership at the community scale something that excites you? If yes, this may be the opportunity for you.

The Lake Windermere Ambassadors (LWA) are a community-based water stewardship group working in the East Kootenay region of BC. The Ambassadors have a vision of an ecologically healthy Lake Windermere with balanced management approaches that support recreation and traditional uses, high fish and wildlife values, and economic prosperity in the region. The organization is directed by a Board representing a diversity of stakeholders in the Lake Windermere watershed. The Program Coordinator is responsible for implementing all aspects of the program, including water quality and quantity monitoring, outreach and education, restoration and maintenance, and program administration. The Coordinator supervises summer staff, but otherwise is the sole employee of this organization. The LWA are designated the Lake Management Committee whose role is to support the non-regulatory implementation of the Lake Windermere Management Plan and to act as a resource for projects benefiting the health of Lake Windermere. Thus, the position offers an exciting opportunity to work in innovative water governance, through grassroots initiatives aimed at long-term watershed planning, monitoring and community engagement.
