In a rapidly changing and dynamic world, safety remains an essential need. BC Safety Authority works with industry, businesses and government to ensure the safe installation and operation of technical systems and equipment. Established eleven years ago, BCSA is an independent, self-funded organization that takes an innovative approach to safety. Moving away from a focus on compliance, BCSA employs a knowledge-based business model which identifies and addresses risk. The result is better safety outcomes now and for future generations.
An opportunity currently exists to join BCSA as VP Legal and Policy, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary. Reporting directly to the President and CEO, this position plays a key role in enabling BCSA’s business strategy. As trusted advisor to the executive and the Board, you will assess risk and formulate plans of action that assist BCSA in operating effectively within a regulatory framework. Your mandate will include ensuring that decisions to act within existing legislation, or to propose legislative change, are made with a view to furthering the goals of BCSA.
Bringing passion and commitment to your teams, you will provide executive leadership to the Legal and Policy departments. You will assist the Board in meeting its oversight responsibilities and you will advise on succession for Board appointments.
This is a position for a strategic thinker who can both guide and motivate. The ideal candidate will have at least 10 years of legal experience including experience in-house and as Corporate Secretary. Experience in a regulatory field is an asset. If you have business acumen and the ability to influence, this is an opportunity to use those skills while playing a meaningful role in keeping British Columbia safe.
BCSA embraces diversity and encourages all qualified individuals to apply. You will find an open and cohesive environment based on authenticity, accountability and simplicity.
