You’ll also meet with government authorities to consider legislative changes, public consultations and regulatory interpretations affecting the Division and the Centre. Managing divisional responses to Freedom of Information requests, in compliance with Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, municipal bylaws and other legislation related to privacy and records retention will be another integral part of this key position.

As would be expected of a managerial role like this, you’ll lead, motivate and train a diverse workforce, supervising the day-to-day operation of all assigned staff, ensuring effective teamwork, and high standards of work quality and organizational performance, and promoting continuous learning and innovation. This comprehensive mandate will involve setting service delivery performance targets, and monitoring and evaluating staff performance against those targets, leading the hiring of new union and non-union staff for the Unit, managing and administering the annual budget for the unit, and ensuring that expenditures are controlled within approved budget limitations.
Leading change to improve performance
Widely recognized for your commitment to continuous improvement, you’ll ensure that key performance indicators are actively monitored, measured and consistently reported to divisional management to effectively evaluate and make needed modifications and improvements, and provide strategic direction on the future of records management within the Division and right across the corporation. You’ll also prepare briefing notes, staff reports and presentations for senior management on digital technologies and records management, and web content management, collaborate with divisional and inter-divisional managers, participate in meetings and committees, and make recommendations on service improvements.
