Niagara College goes on record-setting hiring blitz for staffers
Published October 14, 2022 at 3:23 pm
When classes began at Niagara College on the Niagara-on-the-Lake and Welland campuses at the beginning of September, there were 9,500 students enrolled – 4,500 of them new.
The college itself has responded by going on a staff hiring blitz at a record-setting pace.
Before the Fall Term even began, the college had hired more than 100 new faculty, staff, administrators, and counsellors and student support staff. Within the year, they’ll be hiring 100 more.
The college says these positions will serve students in key learning and support areas at the 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 college says, “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.”
“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.
