FINCH — South Nation Conservation (SNC) is accepting applications for a variety of summer student job opportunities at its head office in Finch.

Summer job postings are available in areas of: Watershed Planning, Communications and Outreach, Water Resource Engineering, Finance, Property Management and Environmental Stewardship.

From working in the forest, to conducting environmental monitoring or delivering education programs, students become familiar with the inner workings of a non-profit environmental organization while getting exposed to a variety of career opportunities and experiences.

“We look forward to hiring young and enthusiastic students every summer,” explains John Mesman, SNC’s Communications Lead. “They are our future generation of leaders and will hopefully go on to become good environmental stewards.”

Thanks to support from Federal and Provincial funding agencies, SNC is a regional leader in summer student employment. Every year, the Conservation Authority hires several local students from across its 4,384 square-kilometer jurisdiction in Eastern Ontario.

Internship and co-op opportunities for recent graduates are also available on a year-round basis, depending on projects and funding.

“Employing talented local students allows us to continue providing our full range of environmental programs and services during the busy summer months, while helping students gain valuable experience,” adds Mesman. “They are an important part of our organization.”

The deadline for applications is January 31 at 8 a.m. Interested applicants are encouraged to contact Hannah Jackson at 1-877-984-2948 or visit SNC’s Job Postings webpage for more information: www.nation.on.ca/about/job-opportunities-tenders.
