• New Denver

Situated between the Selkirk and Purcell mountain ranges, the Kootenay Boundary area is home to just under 80,000 people. Residents enjoy glacier-fed lakes, majestic vistas, natural hot springs, a temperate climate and vibrant communities. Recreation is important to life in the Kootenay Boundary. In winter, the ski areas provide downhill, cross-country and heli-skiing. In summer, the area is famous for mountain biking, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, waterskiing, fishing, boating and golf.
Residents of this area have a strong connection to the community. They value the benefits of smaller rural centres such as safe communities and minimal crime. Residents are glad to enjoy all the amenities, but none of the congestion of the “big-city” lifestyle.
Who Are We Looking For?
We are seeking individuals with experience working in a variety of industries willing to bring their transferrable skills to Interior Health. These are casual opportunities. Casual employment means work requirements can vary between Zero and 37.5 hours per week.

Upon completion of 180 hours, there is option of purchasing medical, dental and extended health benefit plans.

Once hired into a casual role, employees are eligible to apply for internal postings including permanent part-time or full time positions.
