Have You Herd? The City Of Edmonton is Hiring A Goat Coordinator
Have you herd? The city of Edmonton is looking for a goat coordinator. We aren’t kidding, they want to hire someone to manage their goats and it pays up to $43 an hour.
Don’t get too egoatistical, but an army of goats could be at your command to do your bidding.
You will be responsible for coordinating the GoatsWork Program and “will engage Edmontonians in all that is goats”.
The GoatWorks program is one of the ways the City of Edmonton is working to combat noxious weeds while limiting their use of herbicides. The City uses a combination of mowing, trimming, hand pulling and goats to manage weeds on most parkland. This army of goats is saving the world.
“The person will be really involved in creating opportunities for Edmontonians to come and check out our herd,” Shannon Wagner of Edmonton’s Operations, Program Delivery & Partnerships Program told CTV News Channel.
Applicants must have a degree in horticulture, forestry, parks, recreation, or an environmental discipline, plus 3 years experience in coordination of urban greening, vegetation management, urban forestry, horticultural, gardening, environmental/outdoor education, or recreation related programs and events, and you must have a drivers license.
The job is 40 hours per week, Monday to Friday, with occasional weekends and evenings and the starting salary is $34.784 – $43.721 an hour.
You can apply for the job of Goat Coordinator here, but you better hoof it, the applications close on March 1st.
