Why Work At St. George's?

We offer more than a job. We offer a career and a community.

At St. Georges, we are committed to preparing and developing students to meet the challenges of the 21st century. To do so, we foster a vibrant, dynamic and diverse community based on the belief that learning is not an end but a journey. This is true not only for our students but for faculty and staff too.

We know that our faculty and staff are critical to the success of our students. That is why we support their professional development and offer access to opportunities and resources that help them advance in their careers and achieve a work-life balance.

At St. George's, we:

  • encourage professional development by offering financial assistance to complete approved training programs
  • encourage staff to join our students in their passion for athletics by offering a fully equipped fitness facility, a competition-sized pool and many other fitness programs
  • support an environment that focuses on promotion and succession planning from within while offering opportunities to new talent as we continue to grow
  • provide a caring environment where the employee’s well-being comes first


We are located in one of the world's most livable cities

Not only does St. George’s offer and enriching and dynamic work environment, but it is located in the world’s most liveable city. Vancouver has been awarded that distinction many times over by The Economist and is consistently rated in the top ten worldwide by other international rating agencies. Vancouver is a city that celebrates its environment. Framed by the Pacific Ocean and a majestic stand of mountains, this glittering city champions its diversity and love of the great outdoors. Even the rain can’t keep a Vancouverite inside!
 
As Canada’s third largest city, Vancouver boasts some of the finest restaurants in the country covering a vast array of cuisines that underscore the city’s robust and diverse population.

When you’re not dining out, you can experience Vancouver’s multicultural communities not only in its vibrant neighbourhoods but in its many entertainment venues. And where else but in the city that hosted the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games can you ski in the morning and golf in the afternoon?
