Apex Green Roofs is looking for a motivated and reliable Green Roof Maintenance Intern for the 2019 season. The maintenance intern plays a key role in Apex's long list of successful vegetated roofing projects. This position will give the right candidate the opportunity to learn about the vegetated roofing industry first hand and gain experience in an exciting and growing field.
The job responsibilities include documenting roof health and growth with detailed maintenance reports, photographing roofs for records and the Apex portfolio, and conducting thorough maintenance (weeding, planting, soil tests) on green roofs throughout New England. The work for this position is primarily based in the greater Boston area, but will require travel throughout New England at times.
Candidate should have excellent communication skills, and feel comfortable interacting with clients. It is essential that the position be filled by someone who is capable of physical work including weeding, planting, and carrying large/heavy items. We ultimately hope that the candidate will feel passionate about plants, sustainability, and the green roofing industry. Gardening and/or landscape experience is a plus.
We are currently looking to fill two positions, one part-time, one full-time.
Starting pay is $15-18/hr dependent on experience.
