Current position postings

We are proud to offer employees a working environment that is ethical and responsible, respectful of all staff, volunteers and stakeholders, inclusive and flexible. We also offer 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), and an excellent vacation entitlement package (starting at 3 weeks per year for support staff; 4 weeks per year for senior managers).
  • Performance Management, Career Development & Recognition
    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, and the Harvey Thomson Scholarship. These funds, valued at $1000 each, are 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.  For more details please read the Kidney Foundation of Canada Statement on Equity, Diversity and Inclusion.
