Manager of Human Resources

Are you a results-oriented and strategically focused leader with a track record of progressive human resources management in a highly unionized environment? If so, here’s an opportunity to advance your career by joining the Peel District School Board’s Human Resources Support Services team.

Reporting to the Assistant Director of Human Resources Operations, you’ll jointly manage and support a team of Human Resources staff in the delivery of efficient, effective employee relations services in a complex, high-volume environment, including day-to-day supervision of team activities. As an HR Manager, you’ll be responsible for employee and labour relations for specific client groups, as well as recruitment, selection and staffing, wage and salary administration, leaves and contract administration, and the management of personnel files. You’ll also manage the integrity of the compensation and job evaluation programs, including the planning and implementation of all related projects.

Your deep knowledge of all things HR will be evident as you provide professional expertise, direction and guidance to the Board concerning all employee relations matters for our business and academic areas of human resources, day-to-day administration and interpretation of collective agreements, and direction on performance management and progressive discipline matters.

An excellent communicator with a sensitive, professional approach to issues management, you’ll attend and/or chair labour management/union meetings, work with Managers overseeing recruitment and staffing processes, and work alongside Senior Management in developing, reviewing and monitoring budgets, including expenditure review and authorization. This collaborative role will also see you liaising with Superintendents, Principals, Managers, Supervisors and employees on employee relations and other HR matters, and developing and implementing quality and service initiatives.

  • Experience in the development, use and maintenance of job evaluation processes utilizing a point factor evaluation system
  • Results orientation and strategic thinking skills, with the ability to negotiate and manage complex and confidential issues with extreme sensitivity and professionalism
  • A thorough knowledge of human resources practices and programs, labour relations, and employment law
  • Excellent interpersonal and communication skills (both written and verbal)
