Tuesday Jobs: Working with Legislators or Cheese

▪️Cabinetmaker at the House of Commons. No, you're not helping New Edinborough resident Prime Minister Justin Trudeau create an executive council that is balanced by both sex-and-region, this is literally building custom furniture, woodwork, furniture and architectural millwork repair, most of it heritage. $59,666 - $75,495 annually.

▪️Cheese Making Helper at St Albert Cheese Coop in Ottawa East. Successful applicant must be able to wrap the cheese in various formats. $21 per hour. (St Albert is hiring a lot of positions, actually)

▪️Material Logistics Clerk at the Senate. There won't be any wearing of purple ermine, this is working in the Senate warehouse in Gatineau. $49,976 - $63,236 annually.

▪️Assistant Deli/Cheese Manager at Farm Boy. The job itself is near the Canada Science and Technology Museum. 

▪️The Privacy Commissioner of Canada job is being actively recruited. You need significant time in management at a senior executive level and a degree in law, ethics or public administration but a successful candidate could waive that with experence. $315,300 annually.

▪️Specialty Team Member (Beer, Wine, Cheese & Chocolate)  at Whole Foods. This is a part time position, so, although the pay is not stated, it is probably not a remunerative at the Privacy Commissioner. Successful candidates will be expected to ‘Surprise and delight customers with consistent and delicious food.’

We'll see you tomorrow – Martha and Darren

▪️306 square metres of sewage spilled out at Stanley Avenue and Keefer Street, Booth Street and Wellington Street, and on Kent Street yesterday. The brand new, $232 million sewer pipe system was in storage mode as work was done at the treatment plant. A faulty instrument let the chambers fill past capacity and then spill over. The system, when it works, is designed to prevent raw sewage from entering the Ottawa River.  [CBC]

▪️The Police Board had so many people speaking against increasing the police budget that it is extending the meeting to today. Dozens of people spoke against a $14 million increase in the police budget yesterday, preferring that the money was spent on mental health and housing programmes. The meeting will continue at 3:30 pm today. [CTV]
