Paint Department Foreman
NBBB has been building boats on beautiful Whidbey Island since 1964. We are seeking candidates for a Paint Department Foreman. Paint and Coating is an art form – and we invite you to consider joining our team of artists who create the needed surface coatings and protections and provide finishing touches on our vessels. We transform vessels from a state of unfinished works in progress to awe-inspiring maritime masterpieces. Our trade’s advances in science and materials have created a need for us to acquire an accomplished paint craftsman who can develop the skills and careers of our internal paint department employees (from Apprentice through leads). Our work has required that we become safety and environmental specialists in a manner that protects and preserves our environment.
The Paint Department Foreman will lead the efforts of a team of Paint Department Leads, Journeymen and Apprentices in the Paint trade performing full range blasting and sanding duties for the shipyard’s new construction and service work. The Paint Department Foreman is also instrumental to helping NBBB meet its compliance obligations to environmental enforcement and regulatory agencies and to assuring a safe work environment for all NBBB employees.
