Please be advised that we perform these tasks come rain or come shine and working outside in harsh and under adverse weather conditions is part of the routine. You will also be walking long distances, climbing, bending, lifting, and performing other physical activities.


Around 20% of your time, you will be assisting in administrative tasks in the office. You will be dealing with data entry and technical report preparation and other restoration site maintenance and management tasks, so be ready to showcase your technical writing and communication skills and attention to detail during the interview!
