Paragon is currently seeking Environmental Assistants to join our team.
Paragon provides environmental consulting services across much of Canada, with a focus on soil survey, revegetation, and mine and pipeline reclamation. For 2020, we are seeking multiple environmental assistants to support our field programs. Some positions are fly-in, fly-out and can be either Edmonton or Calgary-based. Other positions will be based in our Edmonton office. Though some positions are seasonal (April through October), exceptional performers may be offered permanent, full-time staff positions.
The assistants will gain an understanding of various aspects of environmental consulting, with a focus on the following project types:

You must have the following attributes:
