CREW MEMBER -Rideau Canal

Full-time

We’re proud of the work we do at Strathmore, but without strong, dedicated crew members supporting our leaders… well, to be honest, we wouldn’t as respected as we are in urban landscape management.

 

Strathmore crew members are responsible for completing all required physical tasks to the highest standards, so that our clients can go home happy. It’s not just about getting the job done, though — our best crew members show up on time every day they’re scheduled, ready and excited to work, and respect all of Strathmore’s specifications, procedures and quality standards in the work they do.

 

Plus, who doesn’t love a bit of fresh air and exercise, or a fun, social atmosphere both on and off the clock?
