Student job opportunity

Interested in joining the Student Bike Patrol?

Submit your resume to the Safety, Security and Emergency Management Department, attention Manager of Security.

Most patrollers work two shifts, four hours per week. The academic workload at BCIT is such that two shifts per week does not impact school commitments. The rate of pay is currently $16.75 per hour.

Successful candidates must be willing to undergo reference and security clearance procedures.

History of the student bike patrol

The Student Bike Patrol was formed in September of 1993. This initiative is a very valued part of the overall BCIT Safety, Security and Emergency Management Department personal security program. It has the support of the Student Association, the BCIT administration and the campus community.
