DETAILS

Overview:
For over 49 years, the Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre (BMSC) has supported award-winning teaching and world-class research on the west coast of Vancouver Island, in the beautiful traditional territories of the Huu-ay-aht First Nations in the town of Bamfield, British Columbia. Access to pristine coastal waters and forests with our fleet of vessels is a hallmark of our experiential programs and research support. As an active member of the local community, the BMSC also works collaboratively with the Huu-ay-aht First Nations, the Alberni-Clayoquot regional district, the RCMP, the Canadian Coast Guard and other organizations.
 

About the Job:
BMSC is seeking a Second Skipper and Foreshore Assistant, working in a team environment with the Foreshore Supervisor, supporting sea site and marine operations at the BMSC. The Foreshore is a support-oriented department tasked with satisfying the boating requirements of the Education and Research departments. The BMSC has a fleet of 11 vessels ranging from 4m to 13m in length.  The two larger vessels (MV Alta – 13m, 12 T, and Barkley Star – 10m) are used by the Education and Research Departments and require a qualified BMSC operator.

The larger "skiffs" are primarily used for field trips by the Education department.
The smaller vessels are provided to qualified students and researchers.

The Second Skipper and Foreshore Assistant is responsible for helping with basic repair, maintenance, scheduling, and piloting these vessels. The Foreshore has three staff: the Foreshore Supervisor, a second Skipper/Assistant to the Foreshore supervisor, and a Dive and Safety Officer (DSO). The DSO does not report to the Foreshore Staff but is required to work closely with them due to the nature of their work on the water.

During the busy fall and spring field trip season boat trip scheduling is done in collaboration with the Education Program and often includes weekends; flexibility in the work schedule is required. The Second Skipper/Foreshore Assistant is heavily relied upon during these times.

  • Work with teaching assistants and other individuals as required outlining safe boat operations;
  • Conduct individual boat/skiff training as required;
  • Work cooperatively with internal clients such as other department heads and researchers;
  • Work with the DSO to approve student and research field operations;
