We’re Hiring!

 |  By

Hi everyone! So, maybe you’ve heard, but Vancouver Foodie Tours is HIRING! We’re looking for people with strong leadership abilities, charisma, a wonderful sense of humor, excellent communication skills and a deep passion for Vancouver and its food. Leading a food tour is a combination of quick thinking on your feet, advanced storytelling, and guiding guests from one location to the next. Every tour is rewarding, eye-opening, and different – you’ll meet people from all over the world with totally different stories!

Call it the cherry on top, but you’ll be joining a team of really awesome individuals. Somehow, we manage to be charming, delightful, good-looking and witty, all the same time. Also, we’re really into food. On a more humble note, I will honestly say that I am consistently floored and inspired by the passion behind each of us that ultimately fuels everything that we do. We’ve put together a little something to help you with your application and for you to get to know us – we look forward to hearing from you!
