2016 Contract Employment Opportunity: Piping Plovers at Sauble Beach

Species at Risk – Piping Plovers at Sauble Beach
2016 Contract Employment Opportunity:
Coordinator of Volunteer Monitors
Last year marked the ninth year that the endangered shorebird, the Piping Plover,
successfully nested on Ontario’s side of Lake Huron after a 30-year absence.
Volunteer Monitors play an important role in the species recovery program through
public education and contributing valuable monitoring data on a daily basis.
Starting in mid-April 2016, a contract position will be available for a “can-do”
individual with an interest in species-at-risk, birding, and the coordination of
volunteer monitors. This is a 20-week position, lasting through to late August. It
requires a seven-day-a-week commitment between phone/internet volunteer
coordination and an “on-the-beach” presence in all types of weather.
Key requirements include an ability to schedule/manage volunteers, work in
harmony with the Stewardship Grey-Bruce Plover Lovers Committee, Ministry of
Natural Resources and Forestry (MNRF) field staff, liaise with community members,
maintain and regularly update the website and social media, complete an “end-ofproject”
report, and be an effective communicator in-person, over-the-phone, via
social media and in stand-up presentations. The successful candidate will have
reliable mobility to work with volunteers at Sauble Beach. Internet access and
mobile phone are required. A more detailed description of the requirements is
posted at ploverlovers.com/coordinator.
The position will be reimbursed to a maximum of $15,000.
Prospective candidates should convey their interest and resume via email to:
info@ploverlovers.com with the subject line: 2016 Volunteer Coordinator Position
Resumes received by March 4, 2016 will be considered for interviews to be
conducted on March 11, 2016.
