No current openings, but we anticipate needing great people for the following positions:
Yard Worker –Grading and sorting lumber to be dried in the kiln, and then sorting it in preparation for use. Great if you like to be outside and work independently. Grading and forklift ticket preferred. Will train though if needed. No one piece of wood is too heavy, but it is a physical position.
Woodworker –Manufacturing various cedar products. Attention to detail, and a high standard are essential. We like to build beautiful things, and care and attention are critical. Formal wood working training is preferred, but if you can demonstrate skill, we will accept that as well.
Shipper/Receiver– Prepare our products for shipping. This involves taking apart hot tubs and saunas, and following packing lists to ensure the products are packed to protect them and ensure a great customer experience when they receive their product. You’ll also receive shipments and inventory them. You’ll get to know all the Sooke delivery drivers, and send off shipments to interesting places. You’re the critical final point of contact for our product before it heads out. Accuracy and following checklists are keys to success. And being able to calmly deal with trucks that don’t show when you expect them. Forklift certification preferred, but will train. You will also need to prepare and organize small parts for shipping.
Marketing Specialist– You have an eye for the visual, and know your way around all the big social platforms. Posting on Instagram isn’t a chore for you, and you get a kick out of seeing how your actions change web traffic and conversion. And you can interpret that data, and make marketing adjustments. You’ll be the creative life force for Forest Cooperage, and help build a beautiful and compelling brand. This position will require competency in Google Analytics and Adwords. You will also engage with brand partners and “influencers” to move our business forward.
