Position:     Environmental Field Technician/Environmental Intern

The Environmental Field Technician/Environmental Intern position requires a reliable person who can work independently, follow instructions and protocols and document their work for inclusion into investigation and remediation programs.

This position inherently requires a predominance of field work with out-of-town travel and overnight stays.

Our hope is to find someone possessing intellect, rapid learning skills, good work ethic and a desire to work within a group which supports one another. This position requires training (i.e. 40-hour HAZWOPER) which will be provided by BLDI for those not already having such training.

Primary Position Goal:

In this position, we are looking for someone that can work within a small field team to collect samples and document field tasks in a professional manner to support the environmental services provided by BLDI.
