Are you a proficient teacher with a solid understanding of dispatch systems?

Reporting to the Senior Engineer Supervisor, the Dispatch Training Specialist is responsible for working closely with our operating sites to provide dispatcher training in classroom and real-time environments, and develop and maintain training documents relating to dispatching site operating strategies.

To be successful in this role we are looking for someone with outstanding interpersonal and communication skills. Someone who is a motivated self starter, organized, able to prioritize contending demands, and has strong analytical and problem solving skills.

Join us in the breathtaking Elk Valley of British Columbia. Here you will find outdoor adventure at your fingertips. Whether it's biking and skiing, or the laid-back atmosphere of fishing and hiking, there is something for everyone. Working a compressed work week with alternating Fridays off, come experience what work life balance is all about!
