Join our team to make a difference to British Columbians living with acquired brain injury!

We are hiring for a position with some elements of a care aide position, however, as a Life Redesign Coach, you will work in partnership with the residents who live at CONNECT. Unlike many care aide jobs where you are responsible for dozens of people and the majority of your time is spent doing personal care and checking off a task list, you will work in a house with no more than seven residents, who are redesigning their lives after brain injury or stroke.

Our staffing levels are high so you will have the time to build relationships and use coaching methods to help them set and achieve goals based on what is most meaningful to them. A typical day can include helping residents with: Getting ready for the day, completing exercise programs, personal care, getting out into the community, participating in recreation and leisure interests, meal preparation, and, most importantly, helping them reach their individual life redesign goals.

Becoming a Life Redesign Coach does not require you to have a care aide background. CONNECT will provide you with an orientation and training on the job. We hire based on fit, not qualifications.

Our values are: Respect, Flexibility, Creativity, Learning, Passion and Joy. If these values resonate with you, and if you’re interested in a fun and rewarding career, we would love to hear from you!

Qualifications:

  • Exceptional interpersonal and communication skills – must enjoy working with, and helping others;
  • Experience providing personal care can be helpful;
  • Strong organizational skills with an ability to be flexible when needed;
  • Ability to make connections with people in order to encourage and support them to achieve their goals;
  • Strong problem-solving skills, including conflict resolution;
  • Ability to be self-directed and work as part of a team;
  • Ability to remain calm in challenging situations;
  • Experience working with brain injury an asset; and

  • Competitive wages;
  • Full benefits package, including group retirement plan;
  • Ongoing training and education opportunities; and
  • A fun and rewarding career!
