POSTED TO JOB BOARD ON: 06-FEB-2020

The Nlaka’pamux Nation Tribal Council (NNTC) is dedicated to the protection, advancement and exercise of Nlaka’pamux title and rights. To carry out this mandate, part of our strategy has been to create legal entities including A.E.W. LP.

AEW LP was formed in 2017 by NNTC member communities to carry out “on the ground” work related to archaeology, the environment and wildlife protection. This work has been made necessary by activities of others within the Nlaka’pamux homeland including transportation, mining, forestry, oil and gas, and utilities projects. The NNTC is not opposed to development within our homeland but developments and activities must be consistent with Nlaka’pamux title and rights.  AEW LP is guided by the fundamental Nlaka’pamux law: Take care of the land and the land will take care of you.

AEW LP is a vehicle created to ensure work of the highest standard, controlled by the Nlaka’pamux, is done to protect and promote Nlaka’pamux title and rights:

  • Our archaeological services include: Heritage Reconnaissance, Archaeological Assessments and Monitoring, Heritage Site Evaluation and Mitigation, Artifact and Faunal Analysis, and GIS Mapping.
  • Our environmental services include: Environmental Impact Assessments, Environmental Surveying and Management Plans, Implementation of Mitigation and Reclamation Measures and Environmental Auditing and Monitoring Services.

For the upcoming 2020 field season, our Environmental Services team is seeking experienced Archaeologists for full-time, seven-month contract positions, with a strong possibility for extensions or permanent positions.

The positions offer considerable schedule flexibility. However, you must be prepared to undertake fieldwork out of Lytton, Hope, and/or Kamloops from April through November. The work location for office-based responsibilities is flexible.

Specific duties and responsibilities will include:

  • Assisting with planning and logistics for field projects
  • Conducting survey and shovel testing
  • Recording and maintaining accurate field notes and photographic records
  • Assisting with site mapping
  • Assisting with evaluative unit excavations
  • Collecting and logging GPS data
  • Assisting with site forms and data tables

This challenging and rewarding opportunity will appeal to professionals that possess a BA and/or BSc with an archaeology focus, a B.C. archaeological field school (or equivalent), demonstrated experience in B.C. heritage resource management (or equivalent), knowledge and experience in adhering to occupational health & safety practices, a valid Class 5 driver’s licence, a current First Aid certification (Level 1 minimum). Strong technical, mapping and reporting ability is essential. Experience with GPS units (including Trimble units) and GIS systems is also preferable.

Other key requirements include being self-driven, excellent written and verbal communication skills, proven project management skills, proficiency in report writing, the ability to work in a deadline-oriented environment with minimal supervision, an ability to establish and maintain effective relationships, an ability to work collaboratively in a team, and good computer skills. The ability to adapt, undertake multiple tasks, and respond quickly to changing priorities is imperative.

As Nlaka’pamux jurisdiction is re-asserted and our laws and policy govern work within our homeland, AEW LP is there to implement the change. AEW LP is staffed by both Nlaka’pamux and non-Nlaka’pamux. If you are passionate about archaeology/heritage, the environment and wildlife and want the opportunity to make meaningful change not just profit for shareholders, we would like to meet with you.
