The Vancouver Aquarium is preparing to reopen by hiring 100 staff

Held over two days, the Vancouver Aquarium will hire for positions in retail, kitchen, and tickets and administration

VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) — The Vancouver Aquarium is preparing for its grand reopening by hosting a job fair Friday and Saturday.

Looking to hire 100 positions, the two day fair will be held at the aquarium from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.

The aquarium closed due to the financial losses during the pandemic last September, and then sold in April this year to a U.S. consortium that owns the theme park Dollywood, and the Harlem Globetrotters.

Some of the jobs available include retail, working in the kitchen and in tickets and admission.

Those looking for work need to bring a copy of their resume with them, and if offered a position will receive a letter of offer on site.

The aquarium has not yet confirmed a reopening date.
