Working at VCC
Human Resources Mission Statement
Through collaboration with employees, we provide the services and leadership for employees to succeed and the College to be competitive. We fulfill four distinct roles: strategic partner, administrative expert, employee champion and change agent.
Benefits and Contracts
Instructors, librarians, and counsellors are covered by the Vancouver Community College and the Vancouver Community College Faculty Association Collective Agreement. For more information contact your Human Resources Advisor.
Support staff are covered by the Vancouver Community College and CUPE Local 4627 Staff Collective Agreement. For more information contact your Human Resources Advisor.
All administrators (excluded VCC employees) can contact Gregor MacDonald, Confidential Assistant at 604.871-7004 or Kendal Regan, Organizational and People Development Specialist at 604.871-7019 for more information.
All plans that are provided through an insurer are also governed by insurance contracts. The College supports input from the Benefits Committee which consists of representatives from each of the employee groups at the college: Administrators, VCCFA and CUPE. This committee meets regularly with our benefits consultants so that we may keep current with our policies and maximize the resources available to us.
Details of coverage may change from time to time so it is important that you check with Human Resources if you have any questions. You may also contact your Faculty Association or CUPE representative.
Services for New Employees
We provide a range of services to help you learn about our campuses, your new co-workers, and the college community. Our Welcome to VCC! booklet provides useful information to help you navigate your first months at VCC. It puts information about the college's departments, schools and services at your finger tips. Other campus tours and orientation seminars are scheduled for our new employees to help them get acquainted with the College and ensure a success start within VCC.
Professional and Career Development
VCC strives to provide employees with ongoing opportunities for personal, professional and career growth. All employees have access to career and professional development funds, to support their goals and objectives. Courses on computer software applications, project management, and leadership are offered by Continuing Studies and the School of Instructor Education and other workshops and training opportunities are offered throughout the year.
