Lead Skilled Labourer
Regular Full Time – Pay Grade 8 ($32.94/hour – 2021 Rate)
The District of Oak Bay is a picturesque seaside community located within the Greater Victoria Region, with a population of +18,000. While offering all the amenities of a large metropolitan urban centre, Oak Bay has succeeded in maintaining all the peacefulness and charm of a small town. Residents enjoy an exceptional quality of life, with miles of spectacular West Coast shoreline, brilliant beaches, parks and greenspace, quaint tree-lined streets and vibrant, boutique villages just beyond their doorsteps.
This is skilled and technical manual work in the construction and maintenance of all nature of municipal infrastructure, including sewers, drains and waterworks. The incumbent is relied on as the senior skilled technician for guidance, instruction, and training in manual on-site construction work. The physical component of this position is very similar to that of the Skilled Labourer, Public Works. In addition, this work requires the employee to exercise considerable independent judgment, by the assumption of a second-in-command role relative to a more senior foreman.
Our ideal candidate has extensive related experience, including wide ranging exposure to complex Public Works methods, equipment, infrastructure and services, with a demonstrated aptitude for a leadership role in the performance of Public Works construction and maintenance work; NULCA (National Utility Locating Contractors Association) certification or approved equivalent; secondary school graduation or equivalent, plus additional courses in plan reading and underground utility locating; and minimum of three (3) years in a Public Works construction environment. An appropriate valid and subsisting B.C. Drivers License and Water Distribution Level II certification are also required for this position.
This position is represented by CUPE Local 374.
