Tell us about your business/organization and what makes you stand out as an employer?
Inclusion Parksville has been serving the community since 1959 by supporting adults with developmental disabilities through innovative programs. In the program participants set goals through person-centered planning and identify activities that support their interests.
We are long time employers in this community. We offer diversity, challenges and a supportive and fun working environment. No two days are the same! Inclusion Parksville Society (IPS) is also an accredited agency (check our website for more details).
How many employees do you have?
What do you look for in a new employee?
The ability to listen, encourage and support the people we offer our services to through person-centered planning. Our employees should have knowledge of the Community Inclusion movement, be progressive thinkers, team players and enjoy new challenges.
No certificate is necessarily needed but preference is given to CSW Certification and to people that have a background in a related field (we will look at education and experience as well).
