Current Openings

Kinsol Timber Systems is a leader in the design and construction of timber structures, from craft joinery to tall wooden buildings. We are seeking to grow our team by adding several Journeyman Carpenters in support of the execution of our work, both here on the Island and elsewhere.

As the most experienced members of a team, Journeyman Carpenters are expected to lead tasks for groups of Carpenters or Apprentice Carpenters and to support the Supervisor in the delegation and leadership of our work. As part of a larger group, the Carpenter is expected to collaborate with all team members by demonstrating a positive outlook, a willingness to listen, and a can-do attitude. The types of projects vary greatly, from cutting & erecting timber frames, to the preservation and repair of historic structures, to large commercial heavy and mass timber projects.

Competitive compensation offered with benefits, an exceptional working environment located right on Saanich Inlet, exciting projects and an opportunity for even an experienced Carpenter to continue to learn and develop.

Experienced Timber Frame Carpenter

We are in search of several labourers who are reliable and have a reputation for working hard. The work is principally log peeling, yard cleanup, and general support of our carpentry team. Motivated candidates may be considered for the carpenter’s apprenticeship program. Wage is $15/hr with extended health benefits available after a probationary period.
