The BCCLA is seeking a Director of People and Operations (maternity leave coverage) to ensure that the BCCLA carries out its mandate and operates effectively. We’re looking for an experienced manager with skills in human resources and finance who’s ready to help lead our small but mighty team.
The Director of People & Operations’ primary responsibility is ensuring organizational effectiveness and promoting excellence by providing and supporting leadership in relation to our organizational culture and development, management and human resources, financial management and budgeting, operations and infrastructure, and governance processes in alignment with the BCCLA’s Strategic Plan.
With a mandate that includes work on police accountability, government transparency, democratic rights including freedom of expression, prisoners’ rights, patients’ rights, privacy rights, and national security issues, we are one of the most vibrant and visible advocacy groups in Canada.
The BCCLA is a small team with a big reach, and we want you to be a part of our work.
The BCCLA is committed to ensuring equity, diversity, and inclusion are significant considerations in our decision‑making, in our internal work, and in our work in the world. This is critical for BCCLA to act on our values and to achieve our fundamental mandate to uphold and advance civil liberties and human rights.
We encourage applications from members of communities that are marginalized or that experience structural discrimination, including those identifying as Indigenous, people of colour, members of non‑dominant ethnic, religious, linguistic, and/or cultural groups, women, (im)migrants/newcomers, people with (dis)abilities, working class people, persons of minority sexual orientations and gender identities, and we encourage applicants to self‑identify in their application. The BCCLA is committed to excellence, and recognizes that increasing the diversity of our staff, and especially our leadership, supports this objective.
The deadline to apply is Sunday January 19, 2020.
