Job Type


Full-Time preferred, with a possibility for Part-Time

The Assistant Crew Leader supports the Landscape Foreman and Crew Leader in leading a team of several field employees to provide environmental services, including the installation and maintenance of landscaping projects such as tree plantings, bayscapes, and rain gardens, performing maintenance and assessments of stream restoration sites, removing debris from waterways, and more. Working with the Crew Leader and operational staff, the Assistant Crew Leader helps to ensure that work plans are implemented and that the crew meets the specified objectives in performing their work.  In the absence of a Crew Leader, the Assistant Crew Leader would take charge by leading, supervising, and instructing Crew Members to stay on time and meet quality standards.  They are the crew’s designated Safety Officer, ensuring proper precautions are taken on site. Though an Assistant Crew Leader is not expected to handle disciplinary matters, if the situation warrants immediate corrective measures in the absence of a Crew Leader or Landscape Foreman, such as for safety matters, an Assistant Crew Leader may take reasonable action, which may include escalating issues to higher level management.  An Assistant Crew Leader is an essential part of the company who motivates their team and participates in ensuring the success of our programs through proper and safe execution and delivery of our services.

Through the UpLift program, Howard EcoWorks provides training in domain skills such as identifying native and non-native plants, construction techniques for environmental restoration projects, proper tool usage and care, and so forth.  As a workforce development program, the UpLift program also includes soft-skill training and coaching to give one a leg-up on finding a job in the environmental industry.
