Casual means there are no guaranteed hours and work requirements may vary to a maximum of 37.5 hours per week. Many applicants start out with Interior Health in a casual capacity but are quickly successful on a permanent position, entitling them to employer paid benefits and banked time off for sick and vacation. This is a great way to start your career with Interior Health.

Come to Enderby and you’ll have a hard time staying inside. Warm weather just beckons you outdoors to explore, rushing rivers, and lakes. Spend the day on the water or wandering outdoor markets for artful creations and fresh summer produce or take in our festivals and events for a taste of real hospitality. Spend the evening under the stars taking in a show at the drive-in. When the days are cooler in the spring or fall hike and explore the local trails like the Enderby Cliffs. When the snow flies discover the trails on snow shoes, x-country skis, or snowmobile. Enderby has something for everyone – all year.
