Famous for its hospitality and community spirit, Kamloops is a leader in hosting major events. We are proud to be known as Canada's Tournament Capital. Kamloops, a city of 90,000 people, offers all of the amenities of a larger centre while maintaining the friendly atmosphere of a small town. Kamloops experiences over 2,000 hours of sunshine a year and only 22 cm of rain. Join our team of over 760 employees, who work in a variety of fullfilling and challenging careers.

NOTE: From July–September 2019, the City of Kamloops Human Resources Division will be transitioning to a new online Applicant Tracking System (ATS).

Throughout the summer, the application process will remain the same through the current online ATS. Applicant profiles will not be transferred over to the new system. Once the new ATS is implemented in September, all applicants (internal and external) will be required to create a new online profile in order to apply for jobs.

Please note: All applicant profiles on the current ATS will not be available in September. If you would like to retrieve any of your documents or personal information from your Hiredesk profile, log on before mid-September to retrieve/download. You must know your username and password; at this time there is no way to retrieve them if they are unknown.

HR will be communicating with both internal and external applicants to notify them once the new ATS is in place, so that they may log on and create new accounts and profiles.
