City of Prince Rupert seeks services of a Utilities Coordinator

The busiest folks working at City Hall these days most likely are those handling the Job application desk, with the City once again putting up the Help Wanted Sign, this time with an opportunity in their Operations Department.

A Career opportunities posting for a Utilities Coordinator makes for the latest addition to the Operations Department team, the full time position, which is part of CUPE local 105 paying $41.79 per hour plus applicable premiums.

As the City describes it the work is varied and covers a wide range of duties.

This attendance sensitive position will be responsible for a wide range of duties including but not limited to, the inspection and repairs of all activities related to the operation, maintenance and construction of City infrastructure. 

The successful applicant will conduct utility investigations, perform CCTV inspections, generate appropriate reports and will be responsible for supervision of assigned staff. The successful candidate will be able to provide both surveying and computer drafting services to the Operations (Engineering and Public Works) Department. Computer skills, particularly with respect to engineering applications (inc. CAD and Civil 3D) are required. 

In addition, they will carry out day-to-day tasks stemming from requests for technical information, telephone enquiries, monitor selected capital expenditure programs and special projects. 

The successful candidate must meet the physical demands of the position and comply with safe work practices. The ability to work in a team and independently is required. Required to work overtime and weekend on call as operationally necessary as per Articles 19.03 and 25.07 of the Collective Agreement. 

This position must work toward, obtain and hold Level II Certification in Waste Water Collection and Water Distribution and applicable premiums will be applied.

It comes with a lengthy list of required qualifications, which you can review here.

The deadline for applications is November 4th.

After a bit of a lull at the start of the year, the City has been a frequent contributor to the Civic Info Job Bank a province wide employment listing page, having picked up the pace of job opportunities and we imagine hirings since June.

The latter something which doesn't gain quite as much information sharing as the job openings postings have in the past. With few in the way of welcome aboard notices, as was seen last week,  provided for other positions for the public to review.
