As part of the continued growth and innovation of our Impact Assessment & Planning practice, ERM has an opportunity for an experienced leader to join our global consulting firm as an Archaeologist in Vancouver, British Columbia.
We are looking for both established and emerging leaders who are interested in being part of this thriving global community – outstanding professionals who combine strong consulting and business development skills with a strong technical foundation – to foster and expand a network of excellent client relationships. We seek individuals to help us drive the continued growth of ERM’s business through selling and delivering world-class services, recruiting and developing our next generation of leaders, and further advancing our reputation for supporting development of some of the world’s most complex projects.
ERM’s Impact Assessment & Planning practice focuses on supporting development of projects in the oil and gas, mining, land development, transport, infrastructure, and power sectors. Our goal is always the same: assisting our clients in achieving project success, from planning through construction and operation, while meeting expectations for assessment and management of impacts on environmental, social, health and cultural resources. By helping clients bring these issues into the project planning process early, we seek to help our clients meet environmental/social performance objectives, enable savings in capital and operating costs, and avoid significant approval and other delays.
ERM combines experience with global standards, such as the Equator Principles and International Finance Corporation’s Performance Standards, with a thorough understanding of local regulatory systems and cultural sensitivities. We apply state-of-the-art assessment tools, from GIS to modeling and visualization techniques. We have also developed our own Impact Assessment Standard, which we use to maintain consistency and quality when other standards do not apply in a particular situation.
ERM’s Impact Assessment & Planning practice has been ERM’s highest growth practice globally, growing over 20% per year for the past 5 years alone. The practice currently has 1,000 professionals globally, representing the full range of technical disciplines, with sector experience across the board. What ERM’s practice is perhaps best known for is supporting some of the most challenging development projects in the world. It is this reputation that attracts and retains the highly skilled consultants who comprise ERM’s Impact Assessment & Planning team.
ERM Rescan is seeking an archaeologist with Field Director status in the Interior Plateau region or other culture areas in the province, such as the north and south coasts. Preferred but not essential qualifications include: defended M.A. and BC permit holding status. Past experience with projects which have gone through the Environmental Assessment process is an asset. The position will involve travel throughout northern and western Canada.
 Other requirements include:
Organized, efficient and flexible individual who works well in a team environment;
Demonstrated ability conducting archaeological field survey, monitoring, and excavation work;
Must be willing to travel and work away from home for several weeks at a time;
Valid Class 5 driver’s license;
Ability to navigate and work in remote locations;
Ability to perform field work under often physically demanding conditions;
Committed to safety;
Ability to work flexible hours (i.e., short-notice or extended hours).
A background in major industrial projects, archaeological, and environmental impact assessments are also valued.
