Competition #V1156
Closing Date:  4:30 pm, Friday, January 18, 2019

The Sunshine Coast Regional District (SCRD) is the regional government serving the approximate 30,000 residents of the Sunshine Coast. Bordered by rugged mountains on one side and the Georgia Strait on the other, the Sunshine Coast is situated on a peninsula between Howe Sound and Jervis Inlet in the traditional territory of the Sechelt and Squamish First Nations.  Known for its mild winters, beautiful surroundings, arts, culture, and friendly people, the Sunshine Coast is not only a preferred tourist destination, it is a great place to live.

The Sunshine Coast Regional District is currently inviting applications for the position of Facility Services Operator (full-time).  Working within a community development philosophy and reporting to the Facility Services Supervisor, the Facility Services Operator performs minor maintenance tasks and equipment checks for ice arenas operated by the Regional District; operates facility equipment as required including operating the ice resurfacer.  

This position requires applicants to hold a minimum of an Ice Facility Operator Certificate.  If the SCRD is unable to fill the position with a qualified applicant, the SCRD may be prepared to pay expenses necessary to become qualified for this role.  This would include thirty (30) days of working with the refrigeration plant, attendance at a one-week course, tuition and exam costs, and related expenses such as meals, mileage, and accommodation.   The successful applicant would be required to obtain the certificate as a condition of employment within their first six months on the job.

  • The successful candidate must be available to work irregular hours including early mornings, weekdays, evenings and weekends.
  • Appointment is subject to a satisfactory RCMP Criminal Records Check.

This is a bargaining unit position with a wage rate of $28.65 per hour and includes a full benefit package upon the successful completion of a four month probationary period with the SCRD.   If hired without the Ice Facility Operator Certificate, the rate of pay is $26.49 per hour (“trainee rate of pay”) and moves up to $28.65 per hour after the certification is obtained.  Applications for this position must include a current resume, a cover letter quoting the competition number and proof of education/certification submitted via email to Human Resources by the closing date and time shown above.  

Qualification requirements including formal education, training, experience and other skills and knowledge can be found in the job description available with the SCRD website posting at .

We thank all candidates for their interest; however only those selected for interviews will be contacted.
