Spill Response Technicians (60 & 150 GT Marine Masters and 4th Class Marine Engineers)



Western Canada Marine Response Corporation (WCMRC) is a Transport Canada certified Response Organization, whose mandate is to ensure there is a state of preparedness in place and to mitigate the impact when an oil spill occurs. This includes the protection of wildlife, economic and environmental sensitivities, and the safety of both the responders and the public.

WCMRC is looking for CASUAL Spill Response Technicians (60 & 150 GT Marine Masters and 4th Class Marine Engineers) to join our Burnaby spill response team on a casual/part time basis. 

Our spill response team is comprised of professionals with diverse skills and experience. Their ability to effectively manage and direct spill response procedures within the first few hours after response activation significantly reduces the negative impacts oil can have on the surrounding environment. On a spill site, WCMRC personnel work to ensure that the situation is thoroughly assessed, response strategies are carefully devised, and resultant countermeasures are quickly deployed.

The specific responsibilities for this position include:

  • Providing safe, prompt and efficient support to spill incidents, exercises and preparedness projects.
  • Maintaining spill response equipment to ensure all equipment is operational and response ready at all times
  • Ensuring that all activities are carried out with due regard to personal safety, the safety of others, and in line with company policies and procedures.

Successful candidates will possess a high school diploma, Marine Master 60 and/or 150 Gross Ton Domestic certificate, or a 4th Class Marine Engineer certificate issued by Transport Canada.  You will also bring a minimum of 3 years of experience with marine and small power equipment maintenance, working knowledge of local coastlines, and emergency response training and/or experience. A Class One Drivers’ License or an Endorsement 20 (heavy trailer) will be considered an asset. In addition, you are a collaborative team player with great communication and planning skills, and the ability to work well under pressure and meet multiple deadlines.

At WCMRC we value open and honest communication that fosters a climate of trust, integrity in all our business practices, success through competency, creativity and teamwork, and being a steward of the environment.  We believe that putting our values into practice creates long-term benefits for our employees, shareholders, stakeholders, suppliers and the communities we serve.

If you share our company values and believe that you have the necessary knowledge, experience and enthusiasm to succeed in this position, then we would like to hear from you.  To apply, send a cover letter and detailed resume.  

We thank you in advance for your response and regret that only those individuals who are selected for an interview will be contacted.
