The Australian Refrigeration Council (ARC) is recruiting field officers to help the refrigeration and air conditioning industry to protect the planet from global warming and ozone depletion.
The application reads:If you have RAC experience, communication and people skills, a positive “can do” attitude and a desire to help the industry to save the planet through the ARCTick licensing scheme, ARC would like to hear from you.”
ARC chief executive officer Glenn Evans said the success of the scheme was evident in the growing number of licensed technicians and businesses, which recently topped 120,000.
“As the national licensing body for the RAC industry, it is our job to deliver compliance and education services to license holders, both in the stationary and automotive sectors,” he said.
“Our field officers are vital to delivering these services, as they are our main face-to-face contact through our on-site audit activities.
“The big thing about our field officers is that they are there to help, advise and support people in meeting the requirements of their license, not just to ensure people are complying.”
Evans said job applicants need great communication skills and a talent for working hand-in-hand with industry.
“After that come skills such as RAC experience, computer literacy and problem solving,” he said.
“It’s an ideal role for people with lots of industry experience who want to get off the tools but still make a positive contribution to the industry they know and love.”
ARC works under contract to the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment (DAWE) to license businesses and individuals under the Ozone Protection and Synthetic Greenhouse Gas Management Act 1989 and Regulations 1995.
At present ARC has field officer opportunities based at the Melbourne head office and at the Perth office – email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
