Moran Environmental Recovery (MER) is nationally recognized Oil Spill Response Organization (OSRO) that is based out of Randolph, Ma with offices all along the East Coast. We have been involved in all of the major oil spill events over the past 10 years.
We are held and hold our oil spill response personnel to a very high standard. We pride ourselves on our safety culture and on a daily basis work toward a “Best in Class” status. We count on our personnel to perform in a fast pace environment while still satisfying customer needs and maintaining our safety culture at all times. We praise our employees for being able to think on their feet and identify issues along with innovative solutions to solve them. We expect our workers to be able to effectively function under pressure in order to achieve required deadlines. We understand the importance of quality personnel because it directly contributes to the success of MER.
We are looking for highly motivated, reliable, and flexible personnel to participate in our oil spill response labor pool and be part of the MER team. This is a great opportunity for people working part of the year that are interested in filling their time off with an occasional call out to a spill response or other marine/environmental response projects. In addition, we offer opportunities to receive paid training on board spill response vessels.
We will not ask you to miss work at your regular employer. This is not a full-time or guaranteed position; it is on an as needed basis. MER will maintain a list of eligible responders whom will be called in the event of an emergency.
