Partner Job Search Resources

SUPPORT FOR YOUR EMPLOYMENT SEARCH

Welcome to all new VIU employees and those who joined them as they moved to one of VIU’s communities. We are glad you are here.

When a new VIU employee relocates with their family, it can be a challenge for the spouse or partner to find work without a support network in place or knowledge of the local job market. On this page, you will find links to many regional employers as well as contact people within those organizations who can inform on employment opportunities. 

You can also take the opportunity to register for a VIU career account. Creating an account allows you to apply for jobs, check on the status of your applications and register for email job alerts.
