  • Bring your passion for working with older adult services to an exciting new role.
  • Finish each day knowing that you've truly made a difference to the lives of others.
  • Enjoy a highly attractive salary and benefits package.
  • Develop your skills in the exciting and growing sector of senior’s services!

About the Organization

For almost 25 years, Calgary Seniors' Resource Society has been providing much needed innovative services that prevent and reduce social isolation. We are a non-profit organization that helps seniors to remain independent, thriving, and valued members of their community.

What makes us so unique is that we effectively combine specialized and registered social workers with volunteers and volunteer programs that work hand-in-hand. Not only do we assist in a crisis, but we provide ongoing assistance to ensure seniors are supported appropriately long-term. Working with us is an opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of Calgary's older adults.

About the Opportunity 

Currently, Calgary Seniors' Resource Society is seeking Outreach Workers to join their team in Calgary, Alberta.

Reporting to the Outreach Team Lead, the Outreach Workers will provide outreach services to older adults living primarily in the North East and upper South East Calgary communities. The Outreach Workers will be working closely with older adults and their families to provide culturally sensitive practice to address the varying and diverse needs of the community. While this role will be based out of an office, at least 50% of the Outreach Workers time will be spent out in the community.

To qualify for this role, candidates will have a post-secondary education in Social Work and either a current registration or current eligibility to register with the Alberta College of Social Workers. Applicants with a Bachelor's or Master’s degree are preferred, though applicants with a diploma combined with relevant experience will be considered. An active driver's license and access to a reliable vehicle is also required.

About the Benefits

In appreciation of your hard work and dedication, you can expect to be rewarded with a highly attractive salary based on skills and experience. 

You can also look forward to receiving fantastic benefits, including:

  • Medical and Dental benefits through Sun Life. 
  • Company Pension.
  • Opportunities for professional development towards growing your own practice.
  • Payment of Alberta College of Social Workers' registration fees and professional liability insurance.
  • A flexible work environment.
  • Three weeks vacation in the first full year of employment.
  • Team events organized by a social committee including group lunches, the annual spring party, summer bbq parties, and a Christmas party. 

Upon joining Calgary Seniors' Resource Society, you will be welcomed into a supportive and inclusive team. We greatly value the contributions of all our team members and are committed to providing a safe and rewarding working environment, as well as opportunities for professional development and career progression.
