We are looking for a new Facilities and Maintenance Manager to join our team! This role will work and live at our camp five days per week. If desired they can live year-round at camp for free. Fircom is a 20-minute water taxi ride from Horseshoe Bay, West Vancouver.
Camp Fircom is busy of seven months with groups and camps (Apr to Oct) and then has a five-month quiet season. The right candidate will enjoy self-directed projects in the winter months while also enjoy the bustling times of the summer months.
If you are interested in sustainability, woodworking, farming, this could be your dream job. Camp Fircom is an off-grid facility running its own artisanal well, solar renewable energy system, and organic farm and orchard and has a lovely big, new shop.

The ideal candidate would have high mechanical proficiency and a love of problem-solving. This role is not customer-focused, but it’s a small camp and all staff are approached by guests. If you are a self-starter, have a good foundation in facilities management, love the outdoors, and have a passion for working in the non-profit sector, this is the perfect opportunity for you.
