STEP into a career with one of BC’s Top Employers since 2009.

The Liquor Distribution Branch (LDB) is one of the largest distributors and retailers of beverage alcohol in Canada, generating a net income of approximately $1.08 billion on annual sales of approximately $3.3 billion in fiscal 2016/17. LDB has a workforce of approximately 4,000 full and part-time employees, operates 197 retail stores across the province, oversees the operations of approximately 220 Rural Agency Stores and has the role of wholesaler to approximately 700 private liquor retail outlets and 10,000 licensed establishments.

The LDB is a unique government entity that operates with similar independence to a Crown Corporation under the direction of a General Manager and CEO.

In February 2018, the LDB was assigned to distribute, wholesale and sell non-medicinal cannabis inclusive of a government owned online channel with a mandate to support government’s key priorities of protecting children and youth, ensuring health and safety standards, and keeping the criminal element out of the supply chain.

The Maintenance Supervisor is responsible for ensuring adherence to all LDB policies and practices regarding the ongoing maintenance of the Richmond Distribution Centre.  As such, this position is concerned with the cost effective maintenance of buildings, building systems (e.g. heating, air conditioning, etc.), infrastructure and equipment (e.g. material handling equipment, warehouse racking, etc.) to satisfy all applicable government regulations (both provincial and local) and ensure that organizational objectives are sustained as they affect the safety, comfort and convenience of both LDB staff and customers.

An eligibility list for temporary or permanent future opportunities may be established. An enhanced security check and registration is required.

Please review the attached job description for a complete list of duties, qualifications, and competencies. To be considered for this opportunity, applicants must submit a cover letter and resume clearly identifying how they meet the qualifications necessary for this position.
