The VSB is actively recruiting Office Administration staff for our on-call Office Support list as this is an area of shortage in our district. Most of our office administration positions are school-based; however, depending on your skill-set and interests there are opportunities to build your career in Human Resources, Payroll, Accounting, Purchasing, Operations, and various other departments. This position is on-call, but is busy throughout the year (generally working full-time hours) except for slower periods during school breaks (e.g., July, August, Spring/Christmas Break).

Once hired, you can choose to remain on the on-call list or you can apply to the VSB’s internal postings which include temporary contracts and continuing/permanent positions.

All permanent positions include a comprehensive benefits package (including extended health, dental and municipal pension plan) after passing a probation period of 16 weeks.

As an active member of the school community, you will contribute to a positive school culture and have a direct impact on the staff and students.

Pay rates are determined by your technical skill level (Word/Excel/Typing) and whether you pass an accounting knowledge assessment:

  • General Rate: $25.39/hour plus 18.6% in lieu of benefits (total = $30.11/hour)
