Are you a student looking for an exciting employment opportunity? Become a BC Parks Intern!

Being a BC Parks Intern is a great opportunity to learn new skills, meet like-minded people and be engaged in rewarding and creative work.

Two BC Parks Intern positions will be based out of the Smithers office, one located in the Terrace office and seven at the Provincial Services Branch in Victoria. Interns will be contributing to research, education, communications, program development and policy work.

BC Parks Interns will be employed from October 2020 to February 2021. Eligible candidates must have been enrolled in full-time studies (post-secondary) within the last 6-months and be Canadian citizens, permanent residents, or persons who have been granted refugee status in Canada.

The focus of the BC Parks Intern program is to provide training and learning opportunities for youth to develop the skills required to help successfully manage our provincial parks and protected areas. These skills include community engagement and education, conservation, marketing and communications, recreation policy, permitting and park operations as well as land administration. With the skills and knowledge developed in this program, youth will be better prepared to seek other employment opportunities in the natural resource sector and beyond.

To support employment equity and diversity in the workplace, we welcome applications from all groups. This includes women, visible minorities, Indigenous Peoples, persons with disabilities, persons of diverse sexual orientation, gender identity or expression (LGBTQ2S+), and others who may contribute to diversity in the BC Public Service. We also recognize unique styles, perspectives, beliefs and creativity that support a diverse, respectful, inclusive and collaborative work environment.

Applicants that self-identify as Indigenous (First Nations, status or non-status, Métis, or Inuit) may access our new Indigenous Applicant Advisory Service for advice on applying to this position.

• Enrolled in full-time studies at an accredited post-secondary institution within the past 6-months;
• Canadian citizen, permanent resident, or person who has been granted refugee status in Canada;
• Legally entitled to work according to the relevant provincial/territorial legislation and regulations;
