Its motto also reflects the spirit and pride that staff bring to the organization every day. An opportunity now exists for a passionate and talented labour relations and human resources leader to do just that in joining the organization as Director of Human Resources.

Through 11-degree programs and a multitude of undergraduate and university transfer options, located on campuses in New Westminster and Coquitlam, as well as training centres in Surrey and Burnaby, Douglas College is a well-regarded college committed to supporting students to success. With approximately 2,000 employees, including 900 faculty serving some 25,000 students, Douglas College enjoys a reputation for having a positive team culture, and being a well-run and highly functional organization.
