Since 1970, Douglas College has offered students pathways to their chosen careers. Through 11 degree programs and a multitude of undergraduate and university transfer options, located on campuses in New Westminster and Coquitlam, as well as training centers in Surrey and Burnaby, Douglas College has become known as a place that delivers on its promise to students to “Do What You Love. Be Good at It.”

With approximately 2,000 employees, including 900 Faculty serving some 25,000 students, Douglas College enjoys a reputation for having a positive team culture and being a well-run organization.

Given an upcoming retirement, an opportunity exists for an experienced leader to assume the role Director Safety, Security, and Risk Management. Accountable to the Vice President Administrative Services and CFO, the Director of Safety, Security, and Risk Management leads a small and experienced team in the areas of Health and Safety, Emergency Management and Business Continuity, Campus Security and Contracts Administration/Insurance and the College’s enterprise risk management (ERM) program. Student or employee-related misconduct issues will also come to this Director, who will work closely with Human Resources or Student Services to refer matters appropriately. In the case of student-related issues and investigations, the Director will ideally bring related experience in managing complex issues requiring deep sensitivity, and a trauma-informed approach.

The successful candidate will work closely with the Senior Management Team and will work across all campus on a number of key policies, initiatives and training programs. This individual will also support the Vice President Administrative Services and CFO in meeting the ERM reporting duties to the Board’s Audit, Finance and Investment Committee and support the Associate Vice President of Human Resources in reporting on the College’s OH&S programs to the Board’s Human Resources Committee.

The next Director will bring a minimum of ten years of related experience, including time at the senior management level from within post-secondary, public sector or other unionized environments. This individual will likely bring a post-graduate degree in a relevant area combined with a designation as a Certified Protection Professional (CPP) or Physical Security Professional. A Canadian Risk Management (CRM) designation and a certificate or Diploma in Emergency Management and/or Business Continuity will be seen as an asset.
