The principal role of the Associate Builder is to help and support the Lead Builder.

The Associate Builder plays an essential role in ensuring build projects are

successfully completed in a safe and timely manner. The Associate Builder will

also work with the Lead Builder to ensure infrastructure and site maintenance are

done consistently and thoroughly. As a part of the building team, the Associate

Builder will help to ensure a suitable and safe environment within the Village

where everyone who lives, works, or serves can always feel at home.

E1V has a strong and growing presence in the margins of the community. As such many

people need love, support and help in many areas of their lives, i.e. physical,

mental, emotional, relational and spiritual. This includes not only the people

we serve, but also the people serving alongside us. Like every member of the

staff team, the Associate Builder should engage people in a respectful and

authentic way that helps to build connection and trust.

This is a position in a quickly growing village, so the Associate Builder  must be adaptable to changing circumstances and realities, and be willing to embrace new responsibilities as needed.

  • At least a year of hands-on experience working in a trades setting (preferably construction)
  • Must be teachable and coachable
