It's more than just a job. Why work for St. Leonard's Community Services

Eight people in casual meeting around a table with laptops and notebooks.

People tend to look for different things in a job over the various stages of their career.

For example, entry-level job seekers are more likely to look for positions that offer on-the-job training and chances to learn new skills. They're just getting started.

Surveys have shown that more mid-career professionals are apt to look for opportunities for advancement and to be more concerned with the overall workplace culture and environment, and even the commute over other perks. Leadership candidates are more often swayed by roles that allow them to make a difference, to know that their decision making is impacting the overall success of an organization. They want a legacy.

Those are broad strokes, but if you were to ask the most motivated, passionate candidates at each of those career levels, I bet you would find that they had something in common that they wanted from a new job opportunity. And that is the chance to do meaningful work. To feel that their investment of time and effort is contributing to something that they can believe in.
