Technician Entry Level Program

Join the Technician Entry Level Program


Are you a recent university or college graduate interested in building your career? The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure is seeking recent graduates to join us in a variety of positions across British Columbia in our Technician Entry Level Program (TELP). As a TELP, you'll have a permanent job with the ministry at the location you’re hired. Your starting salary will be in the Grid 14/15 level, and once you complete your position’s training plan, which typically takes two years, you'll graduate into a permanent Grid 18 position.

By joining our ministry, you'll be given the chance to build on your strong educational foundation with first-hand work experience. Full-time, permanent employment with us includes a comprehensive training plan designed specifically for each position. As a TELP, you'll be assigned a supervisor and mentor who will share their lifetime of work experience. You'll have access to multiple training and development opportunities and a wide variety of more traditional benefits, such as a minimum of three weeks annual vacation to start, paid overtime, eligibility for the Pacific Leaders Loan Forgiveness program for B.C. student loans, a comprehensive medical/dental program, flexible work arrangements, relocation expenses and more.
