COVID-19 Considerations

To keep our employees as safe as possible, we are currently operating on an rotating schedule of alternating in-person hours combined with work-from-home days. As we move into Phase 3 and plan to return on a regular schedule to the office, we have separated work spaces greater than 6' apart, regularly updated policies informed by current guidance from health officials, and cleaning and sanitizing supplies available to all employees. This position is an in-person role requiring regular attendance at the office, however in light of the current situation, equipment to allow remote work will be supplied as required and we will closely monitor the situation and follow provincial guidance. Remote work in this role is possible if another lockdown is required in the future, but we aim to complete the majority of orientation and training for this position in person at the office. Initial interviews will be conducted by phone, with secondary interviews for selected candidates to be held via Zoom or other video software. Final interviews or job offers will be conducted in person at the office, where distancing policies will be in effect and masks are welcome, but not currently required. Please feel free to raise any related questions or concerns during the interview process; our policies are changing regularly as the situation continues to develop and more information becomes available.
