We’re hiring again!

For the past four years, the NSMBA has received provincial government funding from Service Canada to employ a post-secondary student for 8-16 weeks over the course of the summer season. Service Canada has changed their criteria this year and now any youth aged 15-30 years old is now eligible! We were lucky enough to find Lea Zhecheva in 2015 and 2016, Alanna Jones in 2017 and Anton Urtan and Jason Eames in 2018, who impressed us with their diligence, enthusiasm and love of the outdoors.

We are excited to offer two opportunities for youth to gain valuable job experience while supporting the community. This year we are looking to hire one person to work on our trail crew and one to work in an administrative/communications position. See below for the details regarding both positions.

Due to restrictions related to the grant funding, we are only able to consider candidates who meet the criteria specified in the job descriptions

All job application deadlines are midnight on Friday, March 29, 2019.  E-mail your resume and cover letter to info@nsmba.ca

PLEASE NOTE: These positions exist subject to funding from Service Canada
