“Our location and reputation draw great people to our team, but what keeps them here are the relationships,” says President and CEO J. Benjamin Unkle, Jr. “How many careers provide a chance to make a real difference in the world, and to get to know the people for whom you made that difference?

Our residents tell us every day how much they love and appreciate our work, and our associates say the same about our residents. That is genuine community: truly caring about each other.

“Highly attractive pay and benefits are a must, but the joy of meaningful work in a fun, family environment is what keeps people working and growing here. People have made lifetime careers here of 30 years or more.”

In fact, residents so highly value the nursing teams, administrators, housekeepers, chefs, waitstaff and other essential employees that they have established generous holiday appreciation funds, employee emergency funds and educational scholarships for employees and their family members. Westminster-Canterbury invests just as heavily in their employees with exceptional leadership developmental opportunities, and educational and vocational benefits like tuition reimbursement.

“There is tremendous opportunity to learn and grow here,” says Unkle. “The senior services industry is on the threshold of tremendous growth, so this is a smart career choice. Our employees know that they are not going to be replaced by technology – this is a people-intensive business. We build relationships and get to see the fruits of our labor, knowing that what we do has a real impact on the lives we touch.”

Because of this relationship-driven orientation, Unkle says they “hire for heart.” “Genuine community is not just living and working next to each other, it is really knowing and caring about each other. We can teach you skills over time, but you have to come to us with a heart. If you are a loving person who gets joy out of serving others, you have a future here.” Learn more and search for jobs at www.wcbay.com/jobs-home.
