Are you interested in being part of a team that helps people recover from workplace injuries? Can you build trusting relationships with clients and co-workers? Can you make complex decisions based on a thorough analysis of facts, evidence, and policies?
 
We’re looking for experienced adjudicators who share our enthusiasm for compassionate customer service. Our case managers come from a variety of backgrounds: kinesiology, occupational therapy, nursing, social work, immigration, human resources, education, insurance and finance.
 
If this sounds like you, we have opportunities available in our Kelowna, Port Moody, Burnaby, and Richmond offices. Apply now for positions scheduled to start in November 2018. We’ll be reviewing applications weekly. Please specify in your cover letter which location(s) you prefer.

Is this a good fit for you?
We’re looking for people who can:

  • Show care and compassion while building successful relationships and developing effective recovery and return to work plans
  • Make timely, independent decisions by applying law and policy to a set of complicated and challenging facts that address benefit, medical management, and employability issues
  • Analyze and evaluate complicated information from multiple perspectives and implement lawful and objective decisions
  • Manage a varied and complex caseload with input from your team members on medical, psychological, physical, and financial issues
  • Accurately record, explain, and defend detailed and complex information orally and in writing
  • Apply general knowledge of adjudication principles and practices and/or general knowledge of workplace disability principles and practices
