Employment Opportunity: Office Manager

The Grist Mill and Gardens at Keremeos is a twelve acre provincial historic site that features spectacular heritage gardens (both ornamental and vegetable), fascinating heritage buildings and the only working waterwheel-powered flour mill in Western Canada. We also have a small restaurant, gift shop and campground and host a large number of special events through the season.

In the last seven years, the Grist Mill has seen significant growth with a six-fold increase in attendance, thanks in part to a commitment to quality customer service experiences. Fueled by our talented and enthusiastic staff, we are united in our passion to being an innovative leader in the heritage community. With so much going on, we need a lot of help keeping organized…

  • Comfortable with deadlines and juggling multiple tasks
  • Strong written and oral communication skills
