JOBS WITH University First Class Painters in BC!

Since its establishment in 1982, University First Class Painters has striven to create excellent opportunities for students, operating franchises all across British Columbia.


Franchises at UFCP are operated entirely by students who work as painters and marketers under the student franchise manager every summer. Franchise managers hire a full-time staff and control all aspects of the business for the summer months.


The student manager deals with many responsibilities in running their own franchise.  They are able to apply ideas learned in the classroom to the real world; working as a franchise manager can help any student get more out of their degree. They will learn how to manage all business departments in their own franchise including accounting, sales, human resources and production.


For their first summer as franchise managers, students can take part in the Management Development Program in order to be fully trained before they begin the summer. Students are taken into consideration for MDP depending on their academic achievement, extracurricular participation, work experience and general management skills.


UFCP has several student positions apart from franchise management. In the summer franchise managers hire painters, foremen and marketing assistants. These are excellent summer employment and can pave the way for future management positions. When they’re back at school, students can opt to assist with recruiting efforts on campus. Recruiting positions can be part time or full time, depending on the needs of the franchise manager.


At UFCP, we are happy to create challenging and fulfilling job opportunities for students every year!

    UFCP has been the challenge I needed. It constantly provides new opportunities and experiences that I would not be able to get in the classroom. Being able to work with a solid group of painters has been a huge blessing and I am excited for what the future holds. I will use the skills I have learned here for the rest of my life.
