A Career with The Kidney Foundation of Canada
With a strong and vibrant Vision and Mission, and dedicated to improving the health and quality of life of people living with kidney disease, The Kidney Foundation of Canada is a recognized leader amongst national health charities.
The Foundation is committed to human resource excellence. Our overall Human Resource Philosophy is to attract, motivate and retain the best employees – men and women who will enable the Foundation to gain sustainable financial success, thus contributing to our mission of ensuring a brighter future for Canadians and their families. The Foundation selects staff members from amongst those who meet high standards of occupational qualifications, who are committed to the purposes and goals of the organization, and who have a desire and capacity to learn, grow and develop.
The Foundation is proud to offer its employees a working environment that is ethical and responsible, respectful of all staff, volunteers and stakeholders, inclusive and flexible. The Foundation also offers a vast array of human resource programs and benefits, which include:
Human Resource Policies and Procedures
The Foundation has in place fair and consistent human resource policies and procedures that respect the rights and dignity of its employees, and which provide the framework for consistent management of our employees.
Total Compensation Program
Our total compensation package reflects our commitment to providing a competitive compensation program for our staff. It includes: a base salary, a group insurance plan and a group R.R.S.P. plan (both of which include Foundation contributions), an excellent vacation entitlement package (starting at 3 weeks per year for support staff; 4 weeks per year for senior managers), as well as coverage of provincial health insurance plans (i.e. in BC and Alberta).
Performance Management, Career Development & Recognition Programs
Ongoing monitoring, development and recognition of staff are cornerstones of successful human resource management. Supporting employee development, contribution and commitment is critical in order to ensure that the Foundation is able to deliver upon its mission and meet the challenges it faces today and in the future.
Employees and volunteers are also eligible to receive the Gavin Turley Scholarship for Civic Engagement, a fund valued at $1000 that is awarded annually.
The Foundation does not condone discrimination of any kind. It is the Foundation’s practice to make decisions on hiring, promotion, job assignment, training and other human resource management functions on the basis of identified and essential job requirements, qualifications, abilities and performance. This ensures equality of treatment and opportunity for all qualified employees and applicants for employment regardless of race, age, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, sex, marital status, sexual orientation, physical or mental disability.
