What we’re looking for

We are in search of rental housing for two summer Co-op students from May 1st until August 31st 2018. We expect to hire two summer students this year, so we are looking for either one two-bedroom unit or two one-bedroom units. If you think you may have an option that will work for us, please contact Rob Underhill here to discuss.

Who are the students?

Each year we receive about 65 applications from university students for our summer positions. We interview shortlisted candidates in person, and for the past seven years we have successfully hired mature, professional students for our positions. These are typically very motivated individuals with impressive work experience, academic history, and volunteer service records.

What do they do?

Our summer staff play a very important role in the work of the Mayne Island Conservancy. They create and deliver youth education, maintain our native plant nursery, contribute to habitat restoration projects, conduct our annual kelp and eelgrass mapping surveys, and many assist with many other programs. By helping us find somewhere for them to rent for the summer, you can contribute to the important work they do.

If you have any questions, or would like to discuss if your accommodation option would work for the students, please give use a call or email. Thanks!

Rob Underhill

Really like the look and “feel” of the new website; it’s very welcoming and easy to navigate. There’s something sunny about it too. Bravo!
