Located in the stunning surroundings of BC’s interior, the Kamloops-Thompson School District is a diverse and growing environment committed to great local education through our 5-Year Strategic Plan, Aboriginal Enhancement Agreement, and Long-Range Facilities Report.

Serving approximately 16,000 students, 2,700 students of Aboriginal ancestry, in 48 schools our District offers a variety of enhancement programs, including:  French immersion, International Baccalaureate, sports academies, trades programs, a K-12 fine arts school, Montessori, and an elementary science and technology school.  School District No. 73 is located on the territory of the Secwepemc Nation and serves 7 local bands and the Métis Nation in a large geographical area.

As a key member of the District’s senior administrative team, you will report directly to the Superintendent of Schools. Relying upon your experience as a human resources leader in a public or private organization, you will provide visionary leadership and exceptional management of policies, procedures, and processes that ensure excellence in an employee’s experience from recruitment, onboarding and early career mentorship to supervision and coaching, and exiting or retiring from SD73.

You will have oversight over collective agreements and employment contracts, employment processes, human resource records management, support services and occupational health and safety for employees. Because you will work as part of a senior leadership team or Superintendent’s Council, you will be an excellent collaborator and communicator and carry out other duties as assigned by the Superintendent in the interests of the organization.

Culturally aware, sensitive and astute, you are cognizant of the importance of addressing equity and excellence for Indigenous students and staff.  You are focused on growing research-informed, culturally responsive and inclusive education practices in all departments in SD73. Exploring staff interests, passions and career aspirations is your passion, and you hold yourself and others accountable to the highest professional standards.

When problems arise for any employee, you will have established positive working relationships with our employee groups and with BCPSEA, and legal counsel to provide excellent advice on different possible directions for the Superintendent to consider. You have honed your capacity to evaluate risks to the employer and the employee in any situation in which disciplinary decisions need to be made, and you will advise accordingly to ensure that the Superintendent and Board of Education is following applicable policies, procedures, and legislation.

You are an experienced leader with extensive knowledge in human resources with human resources credentials, including but not limited to a Master degree in a related field. Your consistent, positive outlook paired with your proven expertise with advancing a wide range of successful initiatives has provided you with the background to effectively resolve the complex issues that arise in this high-pressure role. A dynamic, high-energy leader, you offer first-rate communication, interpersonal and problem-solving skills.
