Employment Opportunities

Are you a student looking for summer employment? 

The Kilby Historic Site and Kilby Park is operated by the Fraser Heritage Society, a charitable non-profit society with a volunteer board. Part of the Society’s mandate is to preserve, research and interpret the unique history of the Kilby family and the general store and farm they operated.

Kilby is a wonderful 5 acre BC Heritage tourist attraction that includes a 1906 General Store Museum, Manchester House Hotel, Post Office and working farm with many friendly farm animals. Over 10,000 visitors a year experience a 1920s rural BC farming community in the once populated saw mill town of Harrison Mills, BC. Today this living history site has costumed interpreters on the farm and in the museum; employment in a 50 seat home-style restaurant & unique country gift shop; as well as positions in our 35 site campground..

We have a number of 16-week summer employment opportunities which will run from May 4, 2017 to August 24, 2017 depending on funding. We are accepting resumes for a number of positions including Cultural Interpreter; Animal Program Interpreter; Park Interpreter; Food Service Assistant; Events and Marketing Assistant; IT Support worker;  Archival and Museum Assistant. Applicants must be between the ages of 16 and 30. We also require candidates to have been a full-time student in the semester preceding the employment and intend to return to full-time studies in the fall semester. The successful candidate will work a 7 hour day (35 hours a week) including weekends. Harrison Mills is located 30 minutes east of Mission on the Lougheed Hwy with no public transportation. So although a driver’s license not required you must possess a reliable means of transportation to/from work.

Please note are subject to funding: The positions and its duration are conditional on the approval of the grant application submitted to Young Canada Works and Canada Summer Jobs programs.
