November 10, 2022

Ready to ignite, redirect or accelerate your career trajectory? Brooksby Village, a vibrant Erickson Senior Living community in Peabody, MA, is eager to onboard talented and energetic new employees to its Dining Services team. Whether you are a seasoned worker looking for fresh opportunity, or just entering the work world and seeking training and experience, Erickson has a variety of positions and career track choices to suit your talents, or help you discover them.

Many current, longtime Brooksby Village employees began their first jobs with the company as teens, and through skills training, education support, mentoring, leadership training and other invaluable benefits, have advanced their careers to perfectly suit their talents and interests.

For Gina Fernandez that meant joining the Brooksby Village family when she was an enthusiastic high schooler as a dining-services wait staffer. Twenty years later, the Peabody native has worked her way through college, while rising through the Brooksby Village ranks—from wait staff and catering staff, to dining administrative assistant to human resources coordinator. In 2012, Fernandez moved laterally into sales, and ten years later took the helm as Brooksby Village sales director.

Gaining experience in many facets of the company, Fernandez found the path that was “the perfect fit” for her goals and personality.

“Erickson has continually offered me opportunity for training and career advancement,” she says. “And here at Brooksby Village, from waiting tables to directing the sales team, I have always been supported and felt valued at every level. I have really found a family here at Brooksby Village. Between my fabulous work colleagues and our amazing residents, we have a true, close-knit community here. It is an absolute joy to come to work every day.”

We see each day how those driven to make a difference and feel passionate about what they do thrive in an Erickson Senior Living career.

“There has never been a more exciting time to be a part of Brooksby Village’s dining services team,” said Director of Dining Services, Stephen Slicis. “The rewarding work, diverse training opportunities and other benefits that are inherent with our dining services positions provide an ideal pathway for a successful and rewarding career.”

Other employee benefits include health care plan choices, career-building support, a beautiful workplace and flexible schedules that promote a healthy work-life balance.
