Jobs in Kelowna, Canada

Known for its picturesque wineries, charming architecture, and scenic lakeside parks, Kelowna thrives on the service and tourism industry. Tourism in the Greater Kelowna Area is now worth over $1 billion a year, with 1.9 million annual visitors, and $810 million in economic output.

In 2016, the Kelowna tourism industry created 8,350 direct jobs, which generated $370 million in gross domestic product (GDP). Tourism now ranks higher than both education and manufacturing in terms of employment rate and tourism related jobs make about 9% of all jobs in the city.

Besides tourism, the economy of Kelowna is also driven by the world-famous wine industry and a strong health care sector.

Tourism

Tourism is by far the leading sector in Kelowna and the Regional District of Central Okanagan. There over 600 jobs currently advertised by businesses involved in the tourism industry, including travel agents, ski and snowboard instructors, HR administrators, night auditors, hotel valets, servers, hosts/hostesses, front desk agents, ticket sales agents, customer representatives, administrative assistants, food production managers, housekeeping attendants, cashiers, cooks, baristas, and security guards, among many others.

Wine Industry

Kelowna’s wineries are internationally renowned, as the local climate provides ideal conditions for wine production. Major employers in the industry are Mission Hill family Estate, Andrew Peller Ltd, Mark Anthony Group Inc, Summerland Estate Ltd, Marriott International Inc, and Kalala Organic Vineyard.

Jobs openings in local wineries and distilleries include general laborer, ground maintenance supervisor, farm manager, chief winemaker, care specialist, and distillery host and bartender.

Health Care Sector

Health care sector accounts for over 25% of all job openings in the Central Okanagan. Kelowna General Hospital and University of British Columbia’s Southern Medical Clinical Academic Campus are two of the largest job creators in the health care industry. Specialty nurses are particularly in demand, and in 2016 alone, the British Columbia government hired 1,600 new nurses.

Other career opportunities in health care sector include education specialist, clinical pharmacist, kinesiologist, administrative assistant, occupational therapist, healthcare security officer, district sales manager, registered massage therapy instructor, health information manager, and personal care worker.
