Public Works Lead Hand, District of Taylor

TASK COMPLETION + TEAM MANAGEMENT = YOU
Does this equation get your heart pumping? The District of Taylor is looking for its next Lead Hand to guide a 5-member crew to success in municipal Public Works. Reporting to the Director of Operations for this non-Union municipality, the Lead Hand will manage all operations and maintenance activities for the District, relating to its roads, water, wastewater, solid waste, and cemetery.

WHERE IS THE JOB?
With a population of 1400, Taylor is a close-knit, friendly community in northeastern BC, just 20 minutes south of Fort St. John (pop. 20,000). The homes and businesses are tucked into a pristine valley that banks the majestic Peace River. With plenty of outdoor recreation options and vibrant businesses, the District is also home to a great range of community events.

WHAT WILL YOU BE DOING?
You will be a role-model of respectful and responsible communications for your team, and you’ll make sure that all decisions and actions comply with legislation, policies, and procedures. You’ll have a full time, permanent role; and can be available for emergencies when needed. On a day to day basis, you’ll oversee a wide variety of tasks that include: running a brand new maintenance shop and yard, operating heavy and light equipment, managing the fleet, and handling physical labour. Under your leadership, the Public Works crew will carry out various duties in:

  • Water treatment and distribution
  • Sewer treatment and collection
  • Culvert and ditch maintenance
  • Road and sidewalk maintenance
  • Snow and Ice control
  • Public inquiries and requests

WHAT WILL YOU GET OUT OF IT?
The wage range for the role is currently at $40 / hour, depending on your experience and training, but you know that the wage is just the start of the conversation. The District also offers a second-to-none benefits package that includes medical, dental, extended health, and pension coverage. Not only that, the District will support you with incentives and allowances for health and wellness activities, meals, work clothing, and professional development programs that relate to your career in Public Works.
