The Department of Environmental Conservation, Division of Spill Prevention and Response (SPAR) is recruiting for an Environmental Program Specialist III in the Juneau area. This position is key to the success of the reorganized Prevention, Preparedness and Response Program.
Key responsibilities include but are not limited to:
This position is located in Juneau and is remotely supervised from Anchorage. SPAR recently reorganized and this is a chance to make a positive impact on hazardous spill prevention and response. Juneau's SPAR Division is located in the DEC Building, centrally located in the heart of Down Town Juneau.
The DEC office building is close enough to the Down Town area that in the summer months you can take a nice walk to the downtown area for some sun and local eats! We brag the best food carts for local specialties such as Tracy's Crab Shack and Papa Rods Fish and Chips, both local favorites.
Juneau lies on a small strip of land between sea level and 3800 foot mountains. Main access to Juneau is by sea or by air. There are no roads to Juneau! Juneau is serviced by the Juneau International Airport (JNU) which has one runway and one seaplane landing area. Juneau is also served by the Alaska Marine Highway System (AMHS), a ferry service operated by the government of the U.S. state of Alaska for communities in Southeastern Alaska that have no road access. Juneau's harbor is also a port of call for cruise ships!
