STARS Career Opportunity

Stewardship Officer

Location: Calgary

Closing Date: Feb 9, 2018

When STARS took to the air for the first time nearly 30 years ago, our founder, Dr. Powell, checked the mail every morning to see if enough donations had been received to keep our doors open one more day. Motivated to dramatically change emergency care for communities across a vast landscape, he threw his passion into creating a helicopter air ambulance service – built and supported by the community.

Today, STARS provides world-class services across Western Canada and continues to be fueled by grassroots community support. For many, STARS is their lifeline.

We want you to be part of the crew that makes this all possible.
