Already one of Niagara’s top employers, Niagara College anticipates record hiring during a period of historic growth for the college.
Niagara College is poised to make key investments in people over the next two years, with record hiring of faculty, staff, administrators, and counsellors and student support staff since the spring.
Hiring for new and replacement positions began over the summer and the College filled more than 100 positions before the Fall Term began in September, with a further 100 employees anticipated in the coming year.
Emerging from one of the most challenging times in the College’s history and buoyed by an ambitious strategic plan, these positions will serve students in key learning and support areas at NC’s Welland Campus and Daniel J. Patterson Campus in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Current full- and part-time openings include entry-level to senior management positions in academic schools, Human Resources, Facilities Management Services, ncLibraries, Health, Wellness and Accessibility Services, Indigenous Education, and Research.
“We’re positioning our College for growth, and to play a lead role in the period of economic recovery that lies ahead,” said President Sean Kennedy. “We look forward to welcoming a record number of new people to our team, where we offer an outstanding, welcoming, and student-focused workplace culture, flexible work environments and opportunities to innovate.”
The work of new hires – who span all employee groups – will be tied to the College’s interconnected areas of focus for the next five years: a wholistic student experience; academic excellence; global reach, alumni and partner engagement, social inclusion and environmental sustainability, and organizational excellence. Their contributions will support significant growth and change on NC’s mission to advance student learning.
“Our employees enjoy competitive compensation and a highly engaged workplace where they are inspired to do their best work and have a strong sense of personal accomplishment,” said Pam Skinner, Senior Vice President, College Operations.
As one of the region’s largest employers, Niagara College currently employs more than 1,600 full-and part-time employees.
This September, NC introduced a Remote Work Policy that incorporates many of the lessons learned over the past two years of College operations and work and provides employees with flexibility through a balance of on-campus and remote work. As a place-based organization, all positions will involve some degree of on-campus work.
New positions will be posted regularly on NC’s Human Resources website via the Job Posting Portal, and prospective employees can sign up to receive alerts.
Niagara College offers more than 130 diploma, bachelor degree and advanced level programs; as well as more than 600 credit, vocational and general interest Part-Time Studies courses. Areas of specialization include food and wine sciences, advanced technology, media, applied health and community safety, supported by unique learning enterprises in food, wine, beer, distilling, horticulture and esthetics.
