The FLT is an integral member of UCC field operations, ensuring that UCC field crews are adequately trained and prepared to perform high quality conservation service in a positive, safe, and productive environment. Support of field crews and operations may include (but is not limited to): direct service with crews at their project sites, assisting with training crew leaders and members, performing project site visits, managing logistics for standard and specialized crews, maintaining tools and equipment, data entry tasks in the field office, and assisting with crew member recruitment efforts. The FLT is also responsible for working alongside regional staff to mantain positive, lasting relationships with project partners.

The UCC FLT term of service is approximately 10 months, spanning 3 field seasons (Spring, Summer, Fall). This position involves frequent travel, camping, irregular hours, and a varying weekly schedule. The FLT must have strong leadership and communication skills, flexibility, capacity for self-direction, a passion for conservation work, and a desire to provide mentorship to emerging conservation leaders.

The FLT begins their term of service in early spring, prior to UCC Crew Leader Candidates (CLC) beginning their service. During this time, FLT’s are oriented to their position and field office, and will assist regional staff with preparation for spring training. FLT’s will participate in the spring training period alongside CLC’s. After the spring training period, conservation projects will commence for the remainder of the spring season (March – May). FLT’s will provide extra attention to debriefing projects, helping CLC’s refine tool and project techniques through service on project sites, and attending to areas of individual growth.
