    Dear KIS Staff,

    I have two Cache Creek based job opportunities that I would like to advertise to the people in your area and was hoping you could please help me. They are advertised on WorkBC but I would like to do additional advertising through your office.

    If possible, please advertise 2 job advertisements for a 60 day period. The positions are:

    • 1 Food Service Supervisor to work for Puneet Holdings Inc. DBA Subway Sandwiches and Salads, located at 1209 Highway 97, Cache Creek, B.C., V0K 1H0.
    • 1 Hotel Front Desk Clerk to work for Puneet Holdings Inc. DBA Cache Creek Inn, located at 1209 Highway 97, Cache Creek, B.C., V0K 1H0.

    I would really appreciate it if you could please contact me via e-mail at heather.ward@cwccanada.com . I will send you the job advertisement attachments.

    Your time and assistance in this matter is greatly appreciated.

    Thank you,

    Heather Ward

      Hi Heather, we are only permitted to post employment opportunities for our centre unfortunately.
      The Open Door Group manages the WorkBC file for our area. You might be able to get a bit more
      help by contacting them. As we are both funded by the government, we do not offer competing
      services (in this case, employment). I know, it’s a bit disappointing when we can’t serve even
      our own clients in this manner, even when our mandate is to assist newcomers to settle in to
      their new life and the biggest determinant of quality of life and successful integration is
      employment. We refer to WorkBC for external employment postings.
