Alberni seeks regional coroner

Port Alberni has a second regional coroner's slot to fill. Do you have what it takes?

Port Alberni has a coroner vacancy to fill.

The B.C. Coroners office is looking to fill one of two, on-call community coroner positions due to a recent departure. The office is looking for a wide range of applicants to choose from.

“A posting in the Lower Mainland would get 100 to 200 applications,” said Vancouver Island regional coroner Matt Brown. “In rural areas we don’t have as many but we want to get the word out.”

“The role of a community coroner seeks a person with a particular background and interest.”

In the job posting advertised on the B.C. government’s website, the position pays $25/hr and requires a degree or diploma in a health, legal or social sciences field and five years’ experience in a related field. Experience in conducting investigative inquiries, possession of sound judgment, excellent communications skills and 24/7 availability when on-call is also required.

The position requires attendance at scenes of death, gathering information, liaising with police and other emergency responders and dealing with families.
