    Povey & Associates Land Surveyors has an immediate opening for an individual who is a Surveying Jack-of-all-trades to join a small, fun, and motivated team.  At Povey & Associates we have 99 years of serving our community with a rich family-oriented tradition.

Ideal candidate will be intuitive, a critical thinker and be able to manage various projects going at once.
