Beacon strives to achieve the highest level of excellence and provide exceptional care and service to the people in our community. Beacon relies on a team of brilliant, creative minds and caring hearts. Beacon is the conduit between the skills people have to offer and the services people need. We value talented people and understand that the same people need the opportunity to learn and develop their skills. We want to enable our people to work to their strengths and help them recognize their impact within the community. Beacon knows that our people are the backbone to everything we do.
We’re more than “just getting the job done.” Beacon staff dedicates themselves to our mission of helping people and improving lives, and help make our community a better place to live. Our people are among some of the most dedicated and exceptional service providers you’ll find anywhere. They inspire confidence in their communities and their fellow colleagues. We believe this makes Beacon the best place to launch your career.
Beacon is not your ordinary non-profit. You will join a team of over 1,200 staff and 500+ volunteers who are on the forefront of making a massive impact in their local communities. We offer the opportunity to work in different roles, in multiple different areas, all within one organization.
Our people have been serving the Greater Victoria area for over 40 years and we love it here. There’s no other place in Canada quite like this. With moderate temperatures, beautiful west coast views, and some of the most famous provincial and national parks, you cannot go wrong naming the Victoria area your home.
Not only is Victoria known as the City of Gardens, it is also home to a number of craft breweries, making it BC’s craft brewery capital. We also enjoy an abundance of locally run restaurants that focus on serving wonderful, locally grown produce, farmers’ markets, and cultural events. Whether you like art, live theatre, music, or celebrating multi-culturalism at Filipino, Greek, Chinese, First Nations (or other) events – you’ll find it here!
Do you like sports? Thanks to our mild temperatures, we can use our sports equipment year-round: in fact, many Beacon staff love to golf, skateboard or cycle, even in December. But we’re also just a short drive from some of Canada’s best winter skiing. And we’re surrounded by world-class spots for diving, surfing, swimming, boating, camping and hiking.
No wonder we’ve been voted one of the world’s top places to visit. Once you’re here, you are going to LOVE where you live and work!
At Beacon, we’re committed to supporting the well-being of our staff and their families.
We’re pleased to partner with local fitness providers and recreation centres so that staff can benefit from access to affordable, professional and fun health and wellness services.
All our staff are also invited to enjoy our annual Staff Appreciation Dinner and to participate in fun activities such as Beacon’s workplace community fundraisers, BBQs, and other events. We hold training sessions on various topics and offer access to a robust library of online materials on topics for work, general interest or to support well-being.
Our Regular staff also receive a comprehensive benefits package — including extended health and dental care plans and employer contributions toward retirement.
