Are you interested in bees and would you like to work producing local urban honey?
Alvéole has a sweet deal for you! We’re presently looking for 3 collaborators (Urban Beekeeping Assistant) to help and assist our urban beekeepers harvesting our local honey in Washington D.C. for the 2022 beekeeping season. This is a full-time contract position, 40 hours per week, for 4 to 6 weeks.
At Alvéole, we install urban beehives while educating thousands of businesses, organizations, schools, and families about bees and beekeeping along the way.
Ultimately, we want to make people fond of bees, which in turn will lead to them falling in love with nature and building awareness about the impact that each and every one of us can have in preserving our environment. We’re a B Corp founded in 2013, active today in Canada, the United States and Europe, and officially joined the 1% for the planet movement in January 2021.
Equity, diversity and inclusion
Much like the way a beehive comes together to achieve its goals, we believe that the diverse skills, personalities, backgrounds and past experiences of every Alvéole team member are key components to our growth, wellbeing, and shared goal of making people fall in love with bees.
We have the privilege to serve unique cities and are dedicated to developing a workforce that reflects the spaces in which we live and work. As such, we encourage applications from persons of diverse backgrounds. We are committed to creating a place where all feel included, and recognize that this is a work in progress.
