Position Summary
Have you completed a recognized course in recreation therapy? Do you have a valid Class 4 vehicle license? We are presently seeking new team members to join our Recreation Therapy Department at Trinity Care Centre in Penticton.

Working within a client centered model, the Recreation Therapy Worker is a member of the interdisciplinary team and is responsible for the implementation and evaluation of an established Recreation Therapy Program.

As the Recreation Therapy Worker you will be primarily working with geriatric residents and short stay clients. This position assists in getting residents to/from their programs and carries out established leisure/recreation therapy programs. Staff go on outings with the residents and facilitate groups specific to the needs of the residents (i.e. social, physical, spiritual, etc.) including one-to-one programs. The Recreation Therapy Worker also reports relevant observations of resident progress and behavior to the Supervisor/Recreation Therapist and provides suggestions for changes or modifications to the existing programs.

Shifts of work may be scheduled during days or evenings; shift times are 08:00 to 16:26, 11:34 to 20:00, 08:00 to 15:00, 08:00 to 14:00, 08:00 to 16:00, and 13:00 to 20:00

This is a casual opportunity meaning hours are not guaranteed and may vary between 0 and 37.5 hrs per week. (Once hired into a casual role, employees are eligible to apply for internal postings including permanent part time or full time positions. There are many opportunities with Interior Health that begin with casual on-call positions and lead to regular employment.)

Interior Health strives to create an environment where you enjoy the work you do, the place where you work, and the people around you. Everyone plays a role in the care continuum. Together, we create great workplaces. Be part of a dynamic team!

Please note: This posting is for casual work at a facility covered by the Provincial Health Officer’s Single Site Order and selected applicant(s) must comply with the requirements of the order. The posting is open to all qualified staff but those currently working at a single site facility should note that the hiring Manager will contact the current Manager to discuss the ability to release staff.

Qualifications
• Grade 12,
• Completion of a recognized recreation course(s) plus two year’s recent, related experience or an equivalent combination of education, training and experience.
• Valid class 4 vehicle license as required.

• We invite applicants to self-identify as First Nation, Métis or Inuit within cover letters and/or resumes.
• Interior Health now offers assistance from an Aboriginal Employment Advisor. If you self-identify as Aboriginal (First Nations, Métis or Inuit) and if you would like assistance with the application process, job readiness, interview readiness or tips for resume and cover letter writing, send your question via email to [email protected] to be redirected to the Employment Advisor.

* All postings with a closing date specified close at 11:59 pm PT
