Core duties:

  • Plan and coordinate BHCC’s workforce to best use employee talents;
  • Draw up, negotiate, and administer staff contracts that cover issues such as remuneration, benefits, compliance, and management practices;

This role requires frequent problem solving and decision making, taking into account the strengths and weaknesses of different options to decide the best course of action, while minimising the impact on staff well-being and the operations of BHCC.

Additionally, this role will be part of the executive leadership team and will frequently be responsible for overseeing departmental operations as well as coordinating work activities to ensure that workers complete their duties and fulfil their responsibilities.
