An exciting mandate for a strategic and operationally experienced Human Resources and business leader who is looking to take the next step in a successful career and, in so doing, help the Toronto Police Service deliver on its mandate: The Way Forward.
The Toronto Police Service (TPS) is the fourth largest municipal police service in North America. With approximately 5,000 uniform officers and 2,000 civilian employees, TPS takes pride in its diversity and in its dedication to keeping Toronto the best and safest place to be. The well-earned reputation, as a world leader in policing, reflects the commitment to excellence, innovation, quality leadership, and ongoing professional development.
Currently, the Toronto Police Service and its members are undertaking a new mandate titled "The Way Forward." The purpose is to look beyond the way policing is currently done in Toronto and shift to a modernized model for the City of Toronto that is innovative, sustainable, and affordable. This model will place communities at its core, be intelligence-led, and optimize the use of resources and technology while embracing partnerships as a means of enhancing capability and capacity. As the Service's new Business Partnership Manager, you will make your mark as a proactive change agent committed to continuous improvement and performance excellence, and contribute to the success of an organization dedicated to delivering police services, in partnership with our communities, to keep Toronto the best and safest place to be.
Reporting to the People and Culture Director, you will work collaboratively – with and through people – to establish and deliver a seamless, customer-focused Human Resources service across the Toronto Police Service. This will see you supervising and actively leading a network of Business Partners (BPs), supporting the Deputies, and partnering with Command leaders to ensure the effective provision of HR services for each Command.
As Business Partnership Manager, you will provide strategic oversight as a member of the People and Culture Leadership Team and, as such, participate in developing and supporting organizational and departmental strategic priorities. You will be counted upon to guide strategic direction on initiatives to ensure alignment and support of business unit strategies, and support the delivery of projects as an effective change agent, removing barriers and building compelling cases for change.
A people champion, quickly developing a deep understanding of the Service while bringing relevant and impactful HR tools and solutions that drive results for each Command, you'll provide professional advice and coaching on the implementation of HR policy and support the delivery of employee lifecycle events such as promotion and performance management. As Unit manager, you will manage the operational budget and direct Business Partnership team member activities, providing day-to-day leadership, guidance and mentorship, supporting employee development, and establishing Unit objectives, priorities and plans – all with a view to supporting and driving continuous process improvement.
An outstanding facilitator and communicator, able to translate customer and business needs into operational plans, you combine a degree in Human Resources or Business Administration with five or more years of experience in an HR Manager role, with strategic and operational responsibilities. With a proven track record of driving the people agenda in a public sector organization, you are recognized for your deep understanding of the HR strategic advisory model, and have a working knowledge of talent management, performance management, diversity and inclusion, employee and labour relations, and organizational design. An HR Professionals Association designation would be considered an asset.
