Choose a Career with Meaning
Everyone wants benefits, a pension, and vacation time. We offer all of that. We offer employees the chance to be part of something bigger than themselves. We offer the opportunity to find meaning, purpose, and give back to your community through your work.
We also know that true life satisfaction requires more.
For more than 60 years, CSS has been bringing hope to those in need. Today, we are one of the largest multi-function social service agencies in the country, operating more than 100 properties in 12 communities across central Alberta, including Edmonton, Red Deer, Lloydminister, Wetaskiwin, and Wainwright. Each year, our staff help more than 20,000 vulnerable women, children, and families find hope.
Direct care services are needed now, more than ever before. At CSS, our staff play an important role in caring not just for our clients, but for the larger community, and society as a whole.
Our 1,900 staff work in a variety of jobs. They work in offices, from home, in residential programs and group homes, in shelters, at drop-in centers, and from group homes. They work at desks, over the phone, and directly with clients. Every single job they do is essential.
Regardless of their role, responsibilities, or time spent at the agency, all of our staff are bound by one common thread … their Calling to Care.
At CSS, we aren’t corporate.
We are values-based, relationship-driven, client-centered, and family-focused.
We are welcoming, diverse, and inclusive. Our staff speak a combined 90 different languages and come to us from all corners of the globe. Whether you were born and raised in Alberta, or just moved to Canada, we are all members of the same CSS family.
We know that differences can unite, rather than divide. We are proud to be an employer that values the unique contributions of the individual; we know these differences make us stronger and challenge us to do better.
At CSS, we celebrate together and we celebrate each other. From BBQs, to potlucks, to Christmas parties and birthdays, we have FUN. And because “fun” can mean different things to different people, we offer many opportunities to get involved in our agency culture. From volunteering for a staff committee, to hosting an internal fundraising event, or attending our popular “Pi(e) day,” there are lots of ways to engage with your colleagues inside the work place.
