Description

Report to: Riverworks Cleans Business Manager

Riverworks Development Corporation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that has a small social enterprise called Riverworks Cleans. Riverworks Cleans holds a variety of contracts involving improving aesthetics of neighborhoods and business districts as well as individual properties. A Public Service Ambassador is a position that requires flexibility and the ability to carry out different tasks related to cleaning, landscaping, snow shoveling, working indoors and outdoors in different climates, driving trucks and utility vehicles, etc. In particular, we are looking to ramp up our workforce for a new contract we acquired involving removing illegally dumped items from City owned vacant lots.

Duties:
• Work in small crews to remove illegally dumped items from City owned vacant lots – this will be the bulk of the work for new employees to start.

• Remove litter and trash from sidewalks and curbs in Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) we have contracts with – currently four different BIDs in the City of Milwaukee.

• Perform basic landscaping activities, including mowing, weed whacking, pruning, etc.

• Carry out snow removal contracts – requires flexibility as we cannot predict snow. Might have to work weekends and different hours depending on time and amount of snowfall.

• Perform all other duties as assigned by the Riverworks Cleans Business Manager and Director of Neighborhood Development.

Note: This position is up to 40 hours per week!
