On the active job hunt? The City of Vancouver has tons of open positions with “competitive base pay,” and many of them were recently posted. So whether you’re looking for your next temporary or seasonal role, or something more permanent, it’s worth checking out what’s available across the City’s departments.

Parks, Recreation, and Culture

It’s the season for camping and hiking, which means BC’s parks are in need of staff in various fields. According to the department page, Parks & Recreation employees connect residents to green spaces across the city, with jobs at parks, golf courses, community centres, playing fields, and a plethora of destination beaches and gardens.

Open roles include Community Youth Worker ($35.72 to $42.04 per hour) Kennel Attendant ($29.20 to $34.30 per hour), and Lifeguard I ($30.81 per hour).

For the latter, individuals with minimal to no lifeguarding experience can easily become licensed and earn $30+ an hour.

Hence, the “broad and varied work” it requires.
