For Employers

What We Do

At Lifetime Networks, we provide employment services to adults who face barriers to employment due to developmental disabilities. We also provide a completely free service to you, the employer. As a job placement service provider, we can help connect you with job-ready candidates who are eager to work and are looking for the right employer to help them reach their goals. Our candidates go through an in-depth discovery process that gives us a clear picture of each individual’s strengths and challenges. We use this information to match you with our best candidate for the position and to ensure ongoing support for both you and your employee.


Services for Employers

Our Employment Specialists are ready to assist you with a number of services at no cost. We are funded through the Employment Program of BC, partnered locally with GT Hiring Solutions. We are happy to discuss your hiring and recruitment needs, as well as meet with you and tour your workplace to help assess where you could make hiring changes to improve your efficiency. Our specialty is job carving – we assess an inefficiency or unmet need in your workplace and create a new position to fill those needs utilizing the skills of one of our job seekers. This win-win relationship creates a new position for an eager job seeker while increasing your efficiency and reducing your workload.

We provide our candidates with an on-site job coach to help with training and integrating the new hire into the workplace. We also provide ongoing job maintenance, meaning we will always be here to help navigate the relationship between you and your employee.
