Benefits

"I don’t know many people who have access at work to a medical clinic, weight room, fitness classes, massage clinic, automotives shop and Guitar Hero competitions. Bonus perks like these, plus flexible summer hours and time off at Christmas, make me the envy of my friends who work elsewhere."

Michelle Stegen, Admissions Specialist

Benefits far above the basics.

Our benefits package covers the major areas, such as prescription drug coverage, dental and vision care, term life insurance and paramedical coverage. What’s more, you can access those benefits as early as your first day of employment. We are a member of Alberta’s Local Authorities Pension Plan, a defined-benefit package that includes planning to assist you in securing your future financial security.

Beyond the basics, we offer great perks like flexible schedules, additional vacation time and a family-focused work environment. Our campus day care centre, open to children of employees as space allows, and our campus health centre are just a few of our other family-friendly benefits.

We care about investing in the health and well-being of our employees and provide fitness classes and wellness programs through our Be Fit for Life Centre and Physical Education complex. Our Wellness Days expose employees to internal and community services and trends in health and wellness. Our scenic, wide-open campus grounds are the perfect setting for breaks, recreation or even informal meetings.

As a member of our Lethbridge College team, you’ll have access to our comprehensive compensation package, with features that provide you and your family with peace of mind today and help you plan for your future.
