Casual means there are no guaranteed hours and work requirements may vary to a maximum of 37.5 hours per week.

This is a great way to start your career with Interior Health.

Vernon is the commercial hub of the North Okanagan, found nestled in the grassland hills and surrounded by three lakes. With so much natural beauty and so many activities so close by, you’ll be amazed at what Vernon has to offer.

Armstrong is located in the North Okanagan between Vernon and Enderby. It overlooks the Spallumcheen Valley, and recently celebrated its centennial in 2013. The city is well known for hosting the Interior Provincial Exhibition and Stampede, and is also a popular cycling venue!

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.
