The Greyhound Adoption Center is looking for a part-time groundskeeper in El Cajon, California. The Groundskeeper performs work in the maintenance, care, and upkeep of GAC's grounds and landscapes, irrigation systems, which includes the operation of electrically-powered and diesel or gasoline-powered grounds-keeping equipment and machines, light towers, mowers, including the ride-on mower, and the use of small hand and power tools or equipment used in maintaining, cultivating, and trimming of grounds including grassy fields and edges as well as shrubs, bushes, soft-scaped and hard-scaped areas. The Groundskeeper also performs routine maintenance on groundskeeping equipment and tools, and makes minor repairs (with demonstrated capability) as directed by the Kennel Manager. The Groundskeeper is to notify the Kennel Manager and/or GAC leadership about equipment and/or maintenance issues in a timely manner and agrees to replenish diesel or gas for electrically-powered equipment.
It is incumbent upon the Groundskeeper to wear appropriate PPE (personal protection equipment) while performing his/her grounds keeping duties and to maintain safety protocols so that dogs cannot escape due to open gates or doors. The Agility Field and Run Free Field must be mowed and neatly maintained by Tuesday of each week.
