Turns out, cool jobs that are actually fun do exist.
Vancouver is an exciting city that’s far from boring; the food, the culture and the jobs prove it. Whether you’re a student looking for a fun summer gig or you’re just tired of your 9-5, here are some current job openings in Vancouver that could make a day at work actually fun.
Perhaps it isn’t Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory, but this organic bean-to-bar chocolate and coffee-making job opening sounds (and tastes) just as good. This full-time gig is all about making chocolate, from roasting cacao to making ganache to preparing caramels and baking pastries.
Become the culinary genius behind Vancouver’s meal kit company. This job is literally coming up with and cooking recipes!
You can travel across B.C. and Alberta all the way to Banff and back while working on a train (food and accommodation included). The job requires excellent customer service skills, so if you’re up for it then this summer job is for you.
Summer, sports and the beach- doesn’t that sound nice? You’ll take people out for fun tours of Vancouver waters by kayak, paddleboard, seadoo and boat plus you can make some good tips.
You won’t be on the cover of Vogue but this is your chance to live out your modelling dream. The Vancouver-based lingerie retailer (women’s bras and underwear) is looking for a fitting model to try on clothes. The opening is only open to female applicants, and all band sizes are welcome (D+ cup sizes are encouraged)!
How does this job description sound to you: “You may be required to surf, ski, jump in a freezing lake, host a campfire telling true ghost stories while cooking s’mores, ride a raft on a class 3 river, hike a trail in an ancient rainforest, jump off a bridge with a rubber rope attached to your feet, stalk a black bear from the safety of a boat, search for killer whales, explore dark unlit caves, pick fruit and drink wine, milk a cow, teach a group what Eh! really means.” You’ll get to do all these things while travelling across B.C., Alberta and even in Seattle.
