Digital Media Specialist - Comox Valley, BC

Work in the best place in the world - the Comox Valley! Comox Valley is an oceanside community located midway along Vancouver Island’s eastern shore. The natural beauty and community amenities of the area offer an unparalleled lifestyle, including fishing, fine dining, community festivals and parks and trails for all ages and abilities.

What does island life look like? Well it could be skiing at Mt. Washington in the morning and golf in the afternoon, or maybe you’d prefer to go ocean kayaking and then have a lazy afternoon at the beach watching humpback whales and orcas swim past. It’s all right here.

We’re looking for a quick learner, who is digitally-savvy and results-driven. Your superb communication and organizational skills will be key to leading and supporting a diverse set of initiatives across news, sales and a variety of audio and digital content we create every day.

With multiple radio stations and digital platform assets across a very unique region of Canada, we need someone to serve as the group expert - to plan, consult, strategize, and execute on ideas in a fast-paced environment, balancing multiple demands and priorities simultaneously.
