The Sunshine Coast
If you have ever been to the Sunshine Coast, you know how amazing it is! If you haven’t, you really should check it out. Bordered by rugged mountains and blue ocean waters, situated on a peninsula (not an island) in the traditional lands of the shíshálh and Skwxwú7mesh First Nations, this area is known for its mild winters, beautiful surroundings, arts, and culture. With all the amazing recreation at our doorstep, it is not just a preferred tourist destination, it is also a great place to live, work, and play.

We are looking for a friendly and talented person to join our team! This position is approved for one year, with the possibility of extension.
