Full Charge Bookkeeper Payroll Specialist

Receptionist Job Posting

This is an opportunity for which NANA is recruiting  (does not have to be NANA Shareholder).

NANA is working on a summer project with NovaCopper up in the Kobuk region (Bornite Drill Camp). They are looking to hire a summer season only (although could lead to future opportunity) Environmental Specialist Assistant to provide support to the Environmental Scientist onsite at the Bornite Drilling Project near Kobuk. The individual would need to have the ability to work remote in a camp most of the summer (will get some breaks) doing field study work (river water sampling) and also making sure the Drillers adhere to the environmental standards. They would need to be very computer savvy and not afraid to speak up if they see something is not in compliance. This is a great opportunity to work under the Environ. Scientist and learn about the project field work – NANA was thinking perhaps a student interested in this field of study. No degree is required but we prefer some Field experience if possible. Or at the very least the ability to quickly learn the process.

Here is a link to the company/project info:  http://www.novacopper.com/s/Home.asp

The camp is set to open on July 1st and run through Sept 1st. NANA hopes to have an Environmental Assistant identified within the next couple weeks.
