RLC Park Services – March 2017

RLC Park Services operates many of the Provincial Parks on Vancouver Island as well as Horne Lake Regional Park. RLC Park Park Services will be attending the April 12th Hiring Fair and have provided us with the following interview.

 
Tell us about your business/organization and what makes you stand out as an employer?
RLC Park Services is contracted by the Provincial and local Municipal Governments to operate many of the parks on Vancouver Island. As a team, our goal is to deliver the most innovative, exciting, and efficiently run park systems not only in British Columbia but in all of Canada. There are many aspects needed in running a park including maintenance, fee collection, patrol, and nature interpretation. This means that working for RLC you could find yourself on a stage with a live owl, fixing a fence on an ocean side trail, or chatting with someone from half way across the world. RLC’s employees have the opportunity to do the job that they love in some of the most beautiful settings on Vancouver Island!

How many employees do you have?
The number of employees at RLC varies greatly depending on the season. Year round, there are about 35 staff but this number grows to over 75 in the peak summer season. This means that every year there are great opportunities to join our team.

 
What do you look for in a new employee?
What we look for in an employee is really dependent on the park and the role that they are hired for. Some of our employees spend their days teaching kids about the natural world, where others work late into the night ensuring that the park visitors have a safe and fun environment to enjoy. No matter what role you apply for, what we look for in all of our employees is the love of BC Parks and a passion to provide visitors with the best experience possible.

 
What advice would you give someone who wants to work for your organization?
Although our staff have a lot of fun, working for RLC is not always a walk in the park. But, if you are prepared to work hard, willing to learn, and not afraid to get a little dirty, there is no question that you will have a lot of fun spending a season working in one of Vancouver Island’s parks.

Do you anticipate hiring in the next 6 months? If so for what types of positions?
Yes, we are just starting to ramp up for the upcoming summer. In the mid island we will be looking for staff to fill positions at Rathtrevor, Horne Lake, Little Qualicum Falls, Englishman River Falls, and Sproat Lake. This season, we are looking for Park Maintenance, Gatehouse and Fee Collectors, Park Patrol, and Park Naturalists!

What is the best way for someone to apply if they are interested in working for your organization?
The easiest way to apply for a job at any of the parks operated by RLC Park Services is to visit our website www.rlcparks.ca/join-our-team. Here, you will find out more about our company, full job descriptions, and an application form.
