Oiled Wildlife Programs Staff Position

Oiled Wildlife Programs Manager

Tri-State Bird Rescue & Research, Inc., is seeking a manager for our Oiled Wildlife

Programs department to oversee and coordinate the projects and resources of the department in conjunction with the mission of the organization. Primary responsibilities include managing Oiled Wildlife Programs activities, such as preparing and delivering wildlife response plans, exercises, and workshops; ensuring the readiness of Tri-State’s oiled wildlife response, including personnel, training, facilities, and equipment; ensuring

Tri-State representation is appropriate and allowed by budget at Regional Response

Team (RRT) meetings and Area Committee Meetings (ACM), exercises, trade shows, and conferences; and preparing and monitoring the departmental budget.

These activities often require frequent travel, and spill responses can involve extended stays “on-scene” as part of the response team. Applicants must have the ability to mobilize rapidly and remain on scene for extended periods of time (minimum of two weeks during a spill response).

Qualifications desired include a 4-year degree in emergency management, wildlife management, biology, or related environmental field; writing and computer (MS Office) skills; and the ability to work under pressure during oil spills. Strong organizational, time management and prioritization skills are required. Prior training or experience with oiled wildlife or the Incident Command System (ICS), supervisory and teaching skills, or advanced computer skills (e.g., GIS) would be beneficial and should be mentioned when applying. Excellent team management and communication skills and compassion for animals are essential.

This is a full-time, exempt position with health benefits and paid vacation that is based in Newark, Delaware. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled. A director- level position may be considered for a candidate with appropriate team management, project management, and spill response experience.

Tri-State is a federally licensed, 501(c)3 not-for-profit avian rehabilitation clinic located in Newark, Delaware, that provides professional care for a caseload of 3,000 native wild birds annually and is internationally recognized for providing oiled wildlife training and response to colleagues and industry partners for all wildlife species.

Interested persons should apply through Indeed.
