Job Description

Green Shield Canada (GSC) is not your traditional health and dental benefits provider. We’re different, and  that’s a good thing.

As Canada’s fourth largest health benefits provider, GSC manages and administers benefit plan programs for nearly four million plan participants nation-wide. A not-for-profit social enterprise, we are driven by our Purpose: to make it easier for people to live their healthiest lives. And we’re fully committed to the talented team of employees  who delight our clients and set our organization apart as an industry leader.

We are also proud to have been selected by Waterstone Human Capital as one of Canada’s Most Admired Corporate Cultures™. This award confirms GSC's longstanding reputation as a company that respects and engages its employees - one that provides an excellent working environment and offers challenges and career growth.

WHY GSC IS A GREAT PLACE TO WORK

With all our cutting edge solutions, there’s never a dull moment

Our approach to benefits is always forward-thinking, from digital mental health therapies (such as MindBeacon Group) to predictive modelling of data insights, and the use of AI in our industry-leading Claim Watch fraud detection and prevention strategy.

You can have a career, and a life

We believe that we get the best from our employees when they have a challenging work environment and time away to do other things. We don’t just say it - it’s real. A work-life balance exists at GSC.

We invest in our employees

As we grow, so do our employees. We offer training and professional development to ensure employees excel and are well positioned for career advancement within GSC. We encourage our team to continue their education - and we help fund it.

You’re part of something bigger

As a social enterprise, we re-invest our profits to support local communities and advocate to make it easier for Canadians to live their healthiest lives. Our employees – and customers – benefit from knowing they are contributing to enhancing the common good.

A few other perks:

  • Generous time off (including vacation, holiday shut-down between Christmas and New Years and even having your birthday off).
  • Full and flexible benefits on day 1 (it is our business after all).
  • Endless supply of free coffee!
