George Brown College offers incredible benefits, resources, and opportunities for employees, making the college an ideal place to work.

Job satisfaction goes way beyond a paycheque. You want to work where you’re valued, proud, and inspired daily. If you’re looking for a workplace that checks all the boxes, you’re in luck — because George Brown College (GBC) is hiring.

GBC has ranked among the top 100 GTA employers for eight years running. With over 3,600 employees, we’re proud of our growth and accomplishments. 

We don’t just embrace diversity — we embody it

At GBC, we embed diversity, equity, inclusion, and Indigenization (DEII) into everything we do. Providing accessible, anti-racist, and welcoming environments is essential to our community’s success. 

Our Accessibility and Inclusion Plan, Anti-Racism Action Plan, and Indigenous Education Strategy spur exciting and important changes at GBC, including new roles and DEII initiatives plus a partnership with the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. We also conduct biannual external engagement surveys to make sure we’re on the right track. 

We’re invested in your development

At GBC, we support lifelong learning and professional development. Full-time employees receive funding for external training, free access to LinkedIn Learning, and access to over 300 workshops offered via our Employee Learning and Development team. Our Continuing Education classes are also available at a nominal fee.

Through our Tuition Assistance Program, employees can get grants of up to $20,000 for new degrees or diplomas. Long-time employees can apply for a 12-month professional development leave, building their skills and education full-time while receiving 80 per cent of their salary.

We reward you for your hard work

At GBC, we value our employees’ dedication, which is why we offer comprehensive and competitive compensation and benefits programs.

To help our employees invest in their futures, we provide a defined benefit pension plan through the CAAT Pension Plan, with equal contributions from both employees and GBC. Employees can also take advantage of a retirement savings plan through ScotiaMcLeod, with convenient payroll deductions.

Work-life balance is important when it comes to career satisfaction, and our vacation offerings reflect that. New full-time employees receive at least 4.4 weeks of paid vacation after their first year, with benefits increasing over time.

We support growing families

We prioritize family support with generous benefits for new parents. Our exceptional maternity and parental leave top-up payments provide new mothers with up to 93 per cent of their salary for 52 weeks, helping ease the transition into parenthood, while fathers and adoptive parents receive up to 93 per cent for 35 weeks.

We care about your physical and mental health

Keeping our employees and their families healthy — both physically and mentally — is a top priority. With 93 per cent of the costs covered by GBC, our health benefits plan includes life, disability, dental, vision, hearing, extended health, and extensive mental health support.

We also promote well-being through our Family and Employee Assistance Program and initiatives like annual Wellness Days. Employees can access subsidized fitness programs, health bulletins and seminars, and a Wellness Centre with health assessments, personal training, and a health library.
