Sustainable UFV is hiring a new Sustainability Coordinator Assistant

Sustainable UFV will be looking for a new Sustainability Coordinator Assistant (SCA) to take over from Travis Gingerich who will be graduating in April. This flexible 12 hr/week student position is an excellent way to get involved in the field of sustainability on an organizational level, which helps to spur long-term and lasting change.

In this position, the SCA works alongside the Chair of the Center for Sustainability and our Energy Manager to create and direct initiatives including:

  • Waste Management
  • Energy Savings
  • Greenhouse Gas Reduction

…while also coordinating events to engage students, staff, and faculty in sustainable practices.

Key initiatives have included:

  • Waste Audit
  • Sweater Week
  • Earth Day activities
  • Bike to Work Week
  • Sustainable Waste Stations

What better way to find out what the job entails than hearing from Travis himself!

It’s been a fantastic experience that has allowed me to stretch my horizons and make a lasting impact on campus. The experience I have gained in project and program management as well as communications has prepared me for a successful transition into a post-UFV career, like many past SCAs who are now in environmental sustainability related fields. Other benefits include flexible hours and a very supportive team in Facilities that really gives you the opportunity to make it happen. 10/10 would do again. ~ Travis Gingerich
