A little bit about the city: Vancouver  

On the West Coast of Canada, it has been frequently rated as one of the world’s most liveable cities and the best city to live in North America. Situated beside the ocean and against the mountains, Vancouver is certainly a scenic place to explore. Sitting within British Columbia, which is notoriously a beautiful region of Canada, there are so many ways to explore Vancouver, from enjoying the beach to hiking or skiing in the mountains, there’s something for everyone to enjoy whilst taking in the scenery. Public transport in Vancouver is notoriously excellent, so getting around is easy. The best way to traverse the city is on their extensive system of buses, the SkyTrain and SeaBus, all of which are easily paid for via a preloaded card that you can tap into for each journey you make.

Years of experience and salary levels are shown purely as a guide. We will only consider applications from candidates that can demonstrate the skills or experience required for the role.

Whilst we would love to respond to every application due to the high numbers we receive we cannot guarantee this.
