At the Liquor Distribution Branch (LDB) our vision of 'Service. Relationships. Results.' is all about providing a valued service, building strong relationships with our stakeholders, and achieving greater results for the province.

The LDB is one of two branches of government responsible for the cannabis and liquor industry of B.C. We operate the wholesale distribution of beverage alcohol and non-medical cannabis within the province, as well as the household retail brands of BC Liquor Stores and BC Cannabis Stores.

We employ nearly 5,000 people in over 200 communities and have hundreds of career opportunities spanning our entire wholesale, retail and corporate operations - from supply chain logistics, to high-tech solutions, and everything in between. The LDB has been named one of BC's Top Employers 12 times over for offering exceptional places to work, flexible work hours and earned days off, extended health and dental benefits, maternity and parental leave top-up payments, a pension program, in-house professional and leadership development, and subsidies for professional accreditation.

Corporate Strategic Services (CSS) plays a critical role in supporting the entire organization. Comprised of Corporate Communications and Stakeholder Relations, Policy, Corporate Privacy and Information, Sourcing and Vendor Performance, Strategy & Business Transformation and the Corporate Project Management Office, CSS is driven by customer-service and taking action to advise, consult and support each business area throughout the LDB.

The CSS team is comprised of approximately 50 staff. What brings CSS together as a team is the ability to work together to support both the operational areas of the business and other support areas (e.g. Corporate Operations, Finance, Human Resources, Information Technology). The group has a strategic lens with a focus on ensuring the organization aligns and complies with corporate priorities, policies, legislation, best practices, and government mandate.

The mandate of Strategy & Business Transformation (S&BT) team is two-fold: to develop a comprehensive, inclusive strategic plan and growth strategy for the organization; and to identify and execute critical strategic transformation efforts aligned to the LDB's corporate priorities.

More specifically, the S&BT team is responsible for the organization's strategic planning, alignment of all key corporate functions to the organizational strategy, and for internal and external reporting of corporate performance. Further responsibilities include oversite to ensure business divisions have comprehensive strategic plans that align with corporate objectives and identifying and implementing initiatives that result in more efficient processes, greater customer and stakeholder impact, and an improved bottom line.

Typical S&BT engagements (not exhaustive) include corporate strategic planning, operations strategy development, operating models design, business/function transformation, and corporate roadmap management.
