Established in 2005, The North Coast-Skeena First Nations Stewardship Society (NCSFNSS) is a non-profit society that works on regional and community-based initiatives related to planning and the sustainable use of marine resources. The NCSFNSS works in partnership with six north coast First Nations, including Metlakatla, Gitxaala, Gitga’at, Kitsumkalum, Kitselas, and Haisla. 

NCSFNSS has an exciting opportunity for an experienced and personable Marine Plan Implementation Coordinator to work with the Nations of the NCSFNSS on its marine planning initiatives.

Based in Prince Rupert, British Columbia, the Marine Plan Implementation Coordinator will be responsible for the following duties: 

  • Coordinate the NCSFNSS participation in collaborative initiatives such as the Marine Plane Partnership (MaPP) and Pacific North Coast Integrated Management Area (PNCIMA);
  • Work with technical staff from NCSFNSS Nations to assist in implementation of community plans and coordinate feedback into sub-regional and regional activities;
  • Coordinate the preparation and delivery of approved budgets and work plans;
  • Liaise with First Nation technical staff from other regions to develop common approaches and strategies; and 
  • Assist and support other NCSFNSS staff members in carrying out their duties whenever possible. 

To qualify for this challenging role, the successful candidate will possess the following: 

  • Bachelor’s or Master's degree in (or related to) resource management, social and environmental sciences, and/or other relevant environmental discipline; and/or
  • Minimum three years' experience working on public, multi-sectoral planning and/or collaborative management processes within a natural resource context;
  • Previous experience working with, and understanding of, resource management related issues from a BC First Nations’ perspective; and 
  • Project and Contract Management experience.  

An equivalent combination of education and experience may be considered. 

With superior technical writing, editing and communication skills, the ability to build and sustain collaborative working relationships will be critical to your success in this role. A technical background with Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is considered an asset. 

Previous experience working with First Nations, particularly in natural resources management, is highly advantageous. 

The ideal candidate will be flexible, adaptable and personable. Confident and assertive, you will maintain patience and a strategic vision for the organization while working on multiple projects with varying timelines. The ability to work cohesively with a multi-disciplinary team is essential, as is the ability to work autonomously. 

Due to the nature and location of this role, a valid Driver's Licence and the ability to travel is required. 

In exchange for your hard work and dedication, the successful incumbent will be rewarded with a competitive salary and a fair benefits package, based on your skills, experience and qualifications.
