Geographic Information Systems Specialist
Turner Drake & Partners Ltd.
Meld Your GIS Skills into One Cool Career!
Yesterday you searched 400 km of intricately shaped coastline to locate the ideal site for an experimental radar station. Today you are a key member of the team tasked with acquiring 200 properties for a high voltage transmission line. Tomorrow you will conduct a trade area analysis for a potential shopping centre. If you have an Advanced Diploma Geographic Sciences: Geographic Information Systems from COGS, or comparable program, and are interested in a career, rather than just a job ... this is it!
Together your GIS Diploma and undergraduate degree can unlock the door to a career as a Chartered Surveyor. A career most have never heard of … but once discovered find exciting, challenging, satisfying, fulfilling, remunerative, where you will be limited only by your own ambition. This is not just a GIS position. It requires a broader skill set (critical thinking, financial analysis, problem solving) all focused on providing solutions to real estate issues. You will participate in further company funded study for the University of British Columbia’s real estate degree, together with our in-house training program. You will be rewarded monetarily, as well as intellectually, as you proceed through this unique program. From our offices in Halifax your work will take you throughout Atlantic Canada and offer a good balance between office and field work. The work environment is friendly, supportive and (usually) good fun. Our IT system is state of the art.
