The Opportunity

Do you love the idea of meaningful work that serves an often overlooked community?  Is working hard with high standards part of your DNA?  The community we serve first makes contact at our Head Office at 601 East Hastings.  That is a contact that can inspire hope and change their lives for good.  The goal of our custodians is to make a great first impression with a clean, shiny, safe and welcoming environment.  Our reception, hallways, bathrooms and public spaces must be thoroughly cleaned daily.  This is where you would come in.  We believe first impressions can give hope.  Please let us know if you would like to share your superb cleaning skills to make that happen.

You will frequently deal with clients in crisis situations, brought about by diverse problems.  There will be other staff nearby to assist as required.

The start wage for this position is $17.73 per hour. Hours are Saturday and Sunday 2:00 to 10:00pm.

This is an auxiliary part-time (15 hours per week) position.  For a copy of the full job description, click on the "Download Job Description" button on the left panel of this page.
