A great can do and solution oriented attitude first and foremost! Skill sets, educational requirements and experience vary for each role, but the common denominator is candidates who are passionate about making a meaningful contribution in their work. We seek candidates who are willing to go above and beyond in assisting fellow team members and those who genuinely want to make a lasting impression on our guests and who are not afraid of hard work.

The hospitality industry can be a great fit for students looking for work during the summer months and it can also lead to meaningful, lifelong careers for those passionate about the industry.

Show up with a positive attitude and appreciate the fact that if successful, you can work in one of the most beautiful locations on Vancouver Island.
