It is within this context that the organization has an exciting career opportunity for the Director of Human Resources.

Creative and solutions oriented, you have demonstrated an ability to balance big picture thinking with the capacity to provide hands-on support as required. Your experience in and understanding of unionized environments would serve you well in this role, and bilingualism (English and French) is a mandatory requirement.
