Is this job for you?

We are looking for someone to join our company long-term; a carpenter who is a skilled and creative problem-solver, someone who is trustworthy as an independent worker who doesn’t need to be supervised, someone who is very personable who will make customers feel comfortable when they are working in their home, making them want to hire us again for the next job.

This position is on-call to start, with lots of room to grow. Approximately 5-15 hours/week to start, increasing based on job performance and availability.

Vancouver Door Doctor is a rapidly growing small family business. This position will grow as the company continues to grow. The plan is for this position to continue on a sub-contract basis with hours gradually increasing to up to 40+ hours/week according to business demand and candidate suitability. Potential for part- or full-time regular employment in future.
