For over 100 years, The Butchart Gardens, has been creating a horticultural experience that exceeds our global visitors’ expectations for aesthetic beauty and gracious hospitality. We believe in creating a quality experience for our staff too! As one of the largest employers on the Saanich Peninsula, we are able to offer training that is valuable on any resume, whether it’s working for the first-time, the first time in a long time or somewhere in between.

While The Gardens are primarily a seasonal employer offering flexible, part-time and full-time seasonal positions, on occasion there are opportunities for those wanting to enhance their career, or are pursuing a workplace experience to complement or complete their training. Our emphasis on equity, safety and thorough on-the-job training provides the assurances many are seeking while gaining experience in today’s workplace. Staff comment on the quality and quantity of the training they receive, how comfortable they feel and how supported they are by the experiences of senior staff and coworkers.

As a high-profile employer with a long staff-retention history, candidates can trust that workplace standards set by BC’s regulatory bodies are diligently applied. We have much to offer our staff:
 flexible work schedules
 variety of shifts
 department transfer opportunities
 complimentary passes and invitations
 social and sporting events
 bright and spacious cafeteria
 free parking
 informal carpooling program
 ride-reduction incentives
 sales, draws and raffles
 discounts on- and off-property
 years-of-service recognition

Our starting wage has been above the government’s minimum for over 50 years, and our commitment to visitor service is matched only by that which we extend to our committed staff members. Camaraderie and career-building opportunities abound ~ inside, outside, trade- or service-specific!

Thank you for your interest in The Butchart Gardens.
