Position Summary

Employees of the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia (Assembly) provide professional non-partisan services to support the democratic institution of Parliament and its members through procedural advice, administrative support and information services. The Assembly is an autonomous employer, separate from the administrative framework of B.C. government ministries and agencies.

The Assembly is seeking a collaborative, dynamic and strategic senior leader for the regular full-time position of Chief Human Resources Officer (CHRO). The CHRO is a valued member of the Assembly who, with the help of Human Resource Operations, will oversee a number of exciting projects and inspire a respectful and healthy workplace and culture.

Reporting to the Clerk of the Legislative Assembly, the CHRO serves as both a key strategic advisor to the Assembly, as well as senior leader to the Human Resource Operations team, providing innovative and strategic human resources support to Assembly management and staff. While the day-to-day operations of the Human Resource Operations department are led and overseen by the Director, Human Resource Operations, the CHRO provides primary organizational oversight in the areas of leadership development, organizational development (including succession planning and talent management), change management, organizational and performance management, training and development, and employee relations. This position also serves as the champion of an organizational culture that values diversity and inclusion, upholds values of respect and dignity, and inspires professional excellence.

The CHRO is also accountable to the Clerk of the Legislative Assembly for oversight and quality control of outsourced human resources services and training to Members of the Legislative Assembly (MLAs) in support of the operation of constituency offices as well as caucuses and legislative offices.

As a member of the Clerk’s Leadership Group, the CHRO contributes to the organizational leadership of the Legislative Assembly, including the planning of strategic priorities and objectives, organizational development and the management of assigned departmental staff and resources. The incumbent also contributes to the fulfillment of strategic organizational objectives and key service area deliverables in support of the Legislative Assembly and its Members, as requested by the Clerk of the Legislative Assembly.

The Assembly offers competitive benefits and salary packages, and a professional workplace situated on the historic Legislative Precinct. For more information about our organization, go to https://www.leg.bc.ca/learn-about-us/working-here.
