Do you like camping and working outside in the desert? Are you good with your hands, tools and heavy equipment? High Desert Native Plants is seeking team members to fulfill a short term assignment of full time work installing fencing around grazing leases in SW New Mexico. Work is expected to begin in Mid-June and should require 8 to 10 weeks. Work will include 10-hour days in the field, in a remote desert location away from facilities. The ideal team members will be self motivating individuals that are capable of meeting the physically challenging nature of the work. Work will involve using tools, machinery, and heavy equipment to pound wood and metal posts into the ground, carry heavy spools of barbed wire, stretch and attach wire to posts. Work must meet quality specifications. Previous experience installing wire fencing and demonstrated working knowledge of the tools and techniques of the trade are highly desirable. Lodging in Lordsburg NM may be an option, but a much better option would be to camp out near the work site. $85 per diem allowance will be provided. Hourly wage is $16.00/hour, 40 hours per week, with overtime if necessary. Work schedule is expected to be Monday through Friday but may be adjusted depending on the schedule requirements of the project. Work is anticipated to last for 8 weeks. Additional assignments may be available as well.
