The Indigenous Policy and Engagement Branch is responsible for working with Indigenous and post-secondary partners to achieve a high quality post-secondary education and training system that is relevant, responsive, respectful and receptive to Indigenous learners and communities.
The Director, Indigenous Engagement and Partnerships, is responsible for providing leadership and direction in the development and implementation of policies and strategies that improve access to post-secondary education and skills training for Indigenous communities and organizations. The Director works cooperatively with Indigenous communities and organizations to understand their needs and facilitate access to post-secondary education and training programs.
The Director works with considerable independence and operates in a challenging and dynamic environment where partners and stakeholders (i.e. senior officials from public post-secondary institutions and organizations, Indigenous organizations, communities and institutes, other ministries and other governments) can have divergent views and competing interests and expectations. The Director must manage those relationships in order to ensure that government priorities are achieved.
If you are looking for an exciting leadership opportunity and possess the required qualifications, we look forward to your application.
