Seeking water / wastewater treatment or related work

Hello everyone

In a bid to escape the clutches of smog, nonstop rush hour traffic, and teeming populace that is Toronto, I'm hoping there are public works folks in any of the counties who may be looking for an operator for their water / wastewater treatment plants. Maybe someone is planning on retiring, or needs additional help? I'm not at full operator status yet, as I'm waiting to get the necessary experience; I'm at the OIT level. However, within two years I'd qualify for my level two operator's licence, so it wouldn't take too long for me to reach a level which would probably suit most of your requirements. And you would have a meticulous, diligent, hard working employee who'd be thrilled and grateful to be on the Island.

I’ve spent much of my working life running a small, very hands on, manufacturing business. Everything from graphic design to product development to dealing with the government to actually physically making things with my hands. Yes, I’m a master leatherworker, in case anyone’s looking for that. Not that anybody is.

I’ve trained as a lab and environmental technologist, so I’m very happy out in the bush, sampling and monitoring; slightly less happy (but still happy) back in the office writing reports, or in the lab, running analyses.

At need, I can turn my hand to construction work, carpentry and residential plumbing. On the side, I’m a theatrical rigger, and also do mast-top repairs and general boat-related repairs. Problem solving and power tools are second nature to me. I love my Milwaukee 18V cordless.

And finally, for now, I’m a more than capable photographer and videographer, with experience in weddings, art and commercial settings, using Adobe graphics programs for editing and tweaking.

If any of this sounds workable for you or someone / place  you know, please contact me.
