Shipper/Receiver - On Call Position
Clerk R11
Starting Salary: $ 46,182.50 - 52,157.99
Royal British Columbia Museum

The Royal BC Museum (RBCM) was established in 1886, making it one of the oldest continually operating museums in Canada. By exploring our human history and natural history, the Royal BC Museum advances new knowledge and understanding of British Columbia, and provides for a dynamic forum for discussion and a place for cultural reflection.

The RBCM, which includes the provincial archives, is undergoing modernization. Modernization is a complex, transformational process that not only impacts the museum's physical presence and facilities, but also requires the museum team to undergo adaptive and technical organizational changes.

The Facilities Department develops, manages, implements and evaluates all work related to the internal and external physical infrastructure and all related equipment of the buildings and property. Facilities negotiates and manages specialized third-party service contracts directly with the suppliers and service providers including but not limited to property management programs, heating/ventilating/air conditioning, electrical, elevators, plumbing, janitorial, telecommunications, corporate vehicles, shipping/receiving, furniture and equipment acquisitions and disposal, landscaping, janitorial services, sustainability programs and asset management.

The Shipper/Receiver position, under general supervision, provides daily shipping and receiving duties for the organization and on-site partners, including sorting and distribution of incoming and outgoing mail and shipments, delivery of goods and materials, stock room maintenance, purchasing and disposal of supplies and assets with an understanding and knowledge to coordinate the transportation of dangerous goods. This position is responsible for gathering, organizing and tracking data for the Carbon Neutral Action Plan, including greenhouse gases and other recycling programs.

Requirements for this position include secondary school graduation, two years' related experience using a variety of office and facility equipment, (prefer experience running forklift), two years' related experience in an administrative capacity, experience with purchasing and tracking financial information on spreadsheet (prefer excel) and experience working with records management (prefer ARCs and ORCS). The candidate must have a solid understanding of facilities operations with maintenance and office support services in a unique museum/archival setting that includes high volume public access buildings (up to one million visitors a year) and a series of specialized restricted access and standard office buildings.
Necessary skills and abilities for this position include the ability to move pallets, boxes, tables, chairs, ladders and other facility maintenance and facility material and equipment and the ability to safely use and tolerate the use of hazardous substances common to facility maintenance and museum activities. The candidate must be able to work under pressure to resolve urgent issues and meet multiple deadlines while ensuring quality and accuracy. Additionally, the candidate must be able to drive a vehicle and have a valid BC Driver's license, be able to lift 50 pounds, and be able to use computers and software tools including MS Office Suite (Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Visio).

This position requires Criminal Records Checks under the BC Public Service Screening Policy and the Criminal Records Review Act and all applicants must be legally entitled to work in Canada (have Canadian citizenship or permanent resident status).
