Senior Building Inspector

The Okanagan Lifestyle Is Calling!

Grow your career in one of the best places on earth. Forget the long commute. Kayak or walk on the waterfront at sunrise, put in an honest day’s work, and still have plenty of time for a bike ride or round of golf before sunset. Fill your weekends with wine tours, hiking, mountain biking, downhill or cross country skiing, or boating. Or enjoy one of the many campgrounds within less than an hour’s drive from home. In fact, we know a few people who commute from the campground, put in a full shift, and are back at the RV barbecuing burgers by the beach at half past five!
That’s why so many people want to work here. But you’re the one who has put in all the time and effort. You have all the credentials, skills and experience, and have paid the dues that make this opportunity yours. Answer the call. Live, work and play in a place where home and holiday meet!
