We’re hiring a Director of Operations and People!

The BCCLA’s Director of Operations and People requires a talented person to actively grow the effective operational and internal capacity of our growing organization. This is a full-time, permanent position.

Reporting to the Executive Director and working closely with the full staff team as well as the Board of Directors, the Director of Operations and People provides a leadership role in BCCLA’s financial, operational, governance, internal capacity and HR work.

We are seeking a poised and professional leader with a strong background in financial management, budgeting processes and endowment management, development of organizational policies, operational infrastructure, managerial experience, knowledge of and interest in human rights and civil liberties issues, and a deep commitment to equality, justice, and freedom. The successful candidate will show leadership, good judgement, and strong ethics.

The BCCLA is committed to ensuring that equity, diversity, and inclusion are priority considerations, including in building a workplace that honours the particular experiences and expertise of communities marginalized through state violence and social oppression. The BCCLA strongly encourages applications from all qualified Indigenous people, Black people, people of colour, immigrants and refugees, working class people, and LGBTQ+ people. Applicants are encouraged to self-identify, should they feel comfortable doing so, in their cover letter and are invited to share how their lived experience would inform their approach and ethics in this leadership position.

This position is normally based at our office in Vancouver at #306-268 Keefer St, on unceded Indigenous lands belonging to the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and səlil̓wətaʔɬ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil Waututh) nations.

In light of COVID-19, the option to perform this position mostly remotely is available until distancing measures are lifted; a laptop and access to all required platforms will be provided. As an Operations position, this position does require some regular in-office work, in compliance with WorkSafeBC guidelines for in-office work during the pandemic.

How to Apply

Applications including cover letter and resume can be emailed to [email protected] and are due by 11:59pm PST on March 9, 2021.

We anticipate interviews will be conducted by BCCLA staff through video-conference during March 2021, with an ideal start date of end of April 2021.
