Search facilitated by Nelson/Kraft & Associates Inc. for Royal Arch Masonic Home Society

The Royal Arch Masonic Home (RAMH), a publicly-funded complex-care facility operating since 1982, strives to foster a welcoming and inclusive environment for all residents within their 151-bed site in Vancouver, BC.  Their mission is to deliver an effective and efficient continuum of health care and support services to a population of older adults who require residential care. All care provisions are designed to meet the specific requirements of the individual and his or her support network, and these are guided by resident-focused values and principles.

The Director of Food and Environmental Services (DFES) represents the needs and concerns of the Food Services and Housekeeping teams at the senior management table. Reporting directly to the Administrator, he or she ensures that the facility and food provisions are organized, cost-effective, high-quality, appealing, sanitary, and safe.  The DFES is responsible for staff management (hiring, scheduling, supervising, and evaluation), evaluating and implementing policies, procedures and practices of both Food Services and Environmental Services in accordance with licensing requirements, preparation and administration of the departmental budgets, and overseeing sanitation and other preventative maintenance best practices.  Practical rewards for this role are significant: an exceptional compensation and employee benefits package, plus five weeks paid vacation!

The successful candidate will be:

  • passionate about nutrition and healthy lifestyles, 
  • adept at applying these to an audience with extensive life experiences and a variety of expectations, and
