Job Evaluation Consultant
The Government of Nunavut (GN) is seeking a seasoned Job Evaluation & Organization Design professional who is looking for an exciting career opportunity in Canada's Arctic. As a subject matter expert, you will play a key role within the Department of Human Resources in attracting, developing and retaining a qualified, representative workforce at all levels of the GN.
Officially founded in 1999, Nunavut exists where tradition meets progress. Much of the Territory has inherited millennia of history and culture of Inuit. Rooted in this rich tradition, the Government of Nunavut (GN) prepares for a prosperous future by investing in high-quality education, health care, culture, environmental protection, and industry growth.
The Government of Nunavut is seeking an experienced Job Evaluation Consultant who welcomes the prospect of playing a crucial role during a time of exciting change by providing consulting services on organizational structures, job design, job description writing, job scope, span of control and related senior-level job evaluation and organizational design expertise.
This is an opportunity to shine as a subject matter expert for GN departments, boards and agencies by providing sound advice, information and guidance regarding organizational design, clarification of responsibilities, and overall position management. A skilled relationship builder, you will liaise directly with internal stakeholders to understand their vision and identify their needs and requirements, and then prepare a job description that reflects said needs and requirements.
Reporting to the Manager, Job Evaluation and Organization Design, you will provide job evaluation and organization design services and centralized classification expertise to a designated portfolio of assigned Government of Nunavut clients, keeping in mind the structured GN job evaluation and approval process already in place. You will conduct relativity studies, jurisdictional/interjurisdictional reviews, and functional review audits while ensuring the integrity of internal relativities. In addition, you will develop and present classification rationales, and deliver training and orientation to line managers and departmental administrators.
The Job Evaluation process impacts the pay range assigned to management, unionized and excluded positions and helps to establish an effectively structured organization. As a result, you will impact all GN positions in terms of consistency and well-founded relativity in compensation which, in turn, has an impact on government-wide job equity as well as salary expenditures. Ultimately, your work will (a) contribute to the Department of Human Resources' mission and business goals of developing and retaining a well- qualified, representative workforce for the GN, and (b) support departments in determining the human resources they need to achieve their missions.
A skilled professional in job evaluation/classification and organization design, with a degree in Human Resource Management or a related field such as Business Administration, Industrial Relations or Commerce with 3+ years' related experience, you bring significant experience in providing strategic advice and guidance on organizational design and job evaluation issues in an operational environment. A Certified Human Resources Professional (CHRP) designation would be considered an asset.
This mandate calls for knowledge of job evaluation and organization design theories, principles and practices, as well as legislative and policy requirements governing job evaluation, with proven skills in their interpretation and application. Complementing your significant experience in evaluating positions, writing rationales, and leading horizontal HR initiatives or projects, you have a background in preparing a variety of documentation for senior management decision-making purposes. You must also be able to complete Hay Plan training within the first six months of employment, supplemented by additional training courses and on-the-job development.
As the best practices champion this role demands, you not only keep on top of trends and developments in your field, such as career laddering, but are also familiar with the GN's mandate and priorities, the Nunavut Agreement, particularly Article 23, and Nunavut's social and cultural milieu, including Inuit culture and economy, community awareness, environmental characteristics and northern experience.
Experience working in a unionized public service environment, and in developing work descriptions and/or providing advisory services on job description development, is considered an asset, as is the ability to communicate in more than one of Nunavut's official languages (Inuktitut, Inuinnaqtun, English and French).
An acceptable combination of education, related experience and formalized training may be equally considered.
This position offers the opportunity to support the success and vitality of a vast and growing territory and the quality of life of its communities, while enjoying a very attractive compensation and benefits package.
