  Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada

Rutter Urban Forestry is seeking qualified and ambitious people to fill positions for the upcoming 2019 season and on a full time permanent basis.
Our company is a small but progressive arboriculture firm rooted in Thunder Bay with a fantastic reputation and 13 years of safe and trustworthy service to our clients.  We enjoy a positive work culture with 8 hour working days and the occasional paid “fun Friday” event for team building and decompressing.  We take pride in a high intensity work environment where the focus is on safety, positive attitudes, quality of work and having fun.  After one year of service, employees are eligible for health benefits and matched pension contributions. 
Thunder Bay is one of the best small cities in Canada to live and work where housing costs are well below national average and a growing culinary and arts culture provides many opportunities to enjoy life here.  Short commutes and ample opportunities to enjoy the outdoors and city life makes Thunder Bay our favourite city in Canada.
Common traits that we look for in team members are a strong desire for challenging physical work, a positive and polite disposition, a drive to learn and grow personally and professionally, and a focus on sensible safety.

Assisting collaboratively on a regular tree care crew, this person will have basic knowledge of tree climbing and some experience working aloft and performing a variety of tasks in a tree.  Ideally this candidate will either already possess an arboricultural certification or be well on his/her path to obtaining credentials.  (Compensation from $16-$22 per hour depending on qualifications)
