The BC Liquor Distribution Branch (LDB) will be holding a job fair in Williams Lake to recruit prospective employees for its BC Cannabis Store, set to open later this year.
The job fair will be held on Tuesday, April 30 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Pioneer Complex. The event will serve as an opportunity for prospective BC Cannabis Stores employees to speak to representatives from the LDB, which operates BC Cannabis Stores, and learn more about the positions available and experience required.
BC Cannabis Stores is looking for one store manager, two assistant managers, six full-time cannabis consultants, and eight part-time/auxiliary cannabis consultants.
The Williams Lake store will be located at #130 – 850 Oliver Street, within the Boitanio Mall shopping complex, and is expected to open later this year.
While LDB recruiters will be collecting resumes at the event, all prospective candidates must submit their application via the LDB’s online portal at www.bcldb.com/about/careers to be considered. All employment opportunities for BC Cannabis Stores are posted at this site.
Successful candidates will receive extensive training, concentrating on social responsibility practices related to safety and responsible adult use, comprehensive product knowledge and customer service skills. Product knowledge and an understanding of the essential elements related to cannabis products and the industry are appreciated, but not required. Retail experience is also appreciated.
BC Cannabis Stores employees will be required to undergo an Enhanced Security Screening check, in accordance with the Cannabis Control and Licensing Act.
The LDB is considering a number of locations across various municipalities for its network of BC Cannabis Stores, and is focused on ensuring a careful and efficient rollout that will provide the best possible customer experience and meet all health and safety regulations.
