Leave That Boring Job Behind:

Now Hiring Education & Outreach Coordinator

Tired of yawning at your stuffy cubicle and want a career where you can make a difference? Don’t want to be bogged down by your lame co-workers and instead immerse yourself in a fun and motivating work environment? Not afraid of a challenge and enjoy showing students the importance of our local waterways? If we still have your attention at this point, chances are you’re thinking about a career change….or you know somebody who is. Good news - we’re growing fast and need someone who can hop on board and take us where we need to go. Think you’ve got what it takes? Let's find out. 

You might be a good fit for the job if……

  • You’re passionate about our work for clean water - plain and simple.

  • You’re a born educator who enjoys sharing this passion with others and showing them why our work is so important.

  • You’re a relationship builder skilled at connecting with diverse groups and able to strike up a conversation with anyone in the room.

  • You’re an organized, detail-oriented project manager who dreams about spreadsheets, deadlines, and deliverables in your sleep.

  • You’re a multi-tasker who thrives juggling many projects at once in a fast-paced work environment without needing your hand held along the way.

  • You're a hard worker by nature and willing to put in long days/hours if it means getting the job done.

  • You think outside the box and don’t just do things because “that’s always how it’s been done.”

  • You see the big picture and know how your role contributes to it.

  • You’re a loyal and scrappy team player who isn’t afraid to step outside of your job description from time to time to move the team forward.

  • You like spending time with your co-workers…..we spend a whole lot of quality time together.

  • You own a canoe or kayak….or at least know where to borrow one when Friday afternoon comes around :)

But wait, it gets better…

  • Work hard, play hard - We like to call these “Friday O’ Funs” - staff kayaking trips, bowling afternoons, game nights, and frequent happy hours are just a few of the ways we reward ourselves after a long week of work.

  • Location, Location, Location - Did we mention our office has a balcony overlooking the Mardi Gras Parade route? Don’t worry - we take full advantage. Plus, we have a spacious parking lot open 7 days a week within walking distance to all downtown establishments.

  • Vacation - Two weeks paid vacation, plus extra time off during Christmas Holidays and early Friday afternoons throughout the summer.

  • Keep it healthy - Full health and dental insurance is available because we care about the health and well-being of our team.

  • Stocked Fridge - You’ll never go hungry or thirsty with a plentiful supply of coffee, soft drinks, water, craft beer, and snacks stocked in the kitchen to make sure you’re properly fueled to get through the day….and then enjoy a beer when it’s all said and done.
