More information on employment opportunities

Most of our hiring occurs in the winter months for spring and summer positions when Coastal Action is the busiest, but we do welcome applications year round. We will hold on to submission for a full year and will only respond to you if you are being considered for a position.

All our positions are funding dependent and most of our summer positions have specific requirements from our funders. We like taking on those enrolled in Co-op programs, summer students who are returning in the fall, or post-graduates looking for internships. We also work in partnership with Clean Foundation's Nova Scotia Youth Conservation Corps, and summer employment opportunities can also be found through them.

If you have interest in getting involved, please contact us about possible employment opportunities. You can also sign up as a volunteer here!
