In our homes, love, care, joy and spiritual well-being is practiced with the people we support, family and co-workers. And that’s what makes Bethesda a great place to work.   Bethesda staff quote

In your experience supporting people with disabilities, you see the people you support like family. There’s a closeness and sharing that develops with a loving heart, where it’s not always obvious who’s helping whom anymore. You are yearning for a new role where your organizational and leadership abilities can shine. And where you can shape a workplace that overflows with grace and respect.

At Bethesda, we are about creating community among the people we support, our staff, and our surrounding communities. We are all interdependent as we experience life together, and all valuable for the abilities we share. We know we learn from and need each other.

Do you have a heart for this vision and the skill to step into a new and challenging role? A resource manager position may be the next step in your journey.


As resource manager for a community inclusion day service and a staffed home, you will join a team where the staff, families and people receiving services have a culture of supporting, celebrating, and enriching the interconnectedness of our communities. Your job is to develop person-centred care and inclusion opportunities for the people who participate in our services. You will create a workplace that supports and empowers staff to love and support these people and their families, and you will maintain administration systems to ensure effective and accountable operations.

As part of your role, you will walk alongside the people with diverse abilities, helping them with daily living skills, encouraging their growth and celebrating goals reached.

These are temporary, full-time positions covering for leaves. They are ideal for experienced leaders who have worked directly with people who have disabilities.
