Who are we?

  • We’re solid. Raven owns a large piece of land, its equipment and its building, all located in an industrial area just outside of downtown.
  • Our current ED has been with us for 3 years, has transformed the organization, and is ready for some down time. Our last ED was with us for 25 years.

Who are you?

  • You are an innovator who understands the bigger picture of zero-waste initiatives and the challenges of progressive waste-management endeavours in a northern territory.

You are professional and well-spoken and can use your diplomacy and negotiation skills when working with governments, while building partnerships and connections.
  • You like living in a small city that has big opportunities, and have the patience to work on a long-term Zero Waste vision for the territory.
  • You are experienced in working with Boards and appreciate a group of Board members who will guide you through the Carver Governance Model.
  • You have a sense of humour and are committed to the natural environment. You’re excited by this position and can’t wait to talk to us!
