Are you up for a challenge? Health care communications is a dynamic, ever-evolving environment. It’s never boring or without purpose – you’ll always be learning something new and supporting the delivery of the best care possible to our communities.
As part of an award-winning team, the Communications Leader for the Clinical & Systems Transformation (CST) Project is a dynamic self-starter who is resourceful, creative, and client-focused.

The Communications Leader should be able to proactively identify opportunities for internal and external communication, as well as potential communication risks, and serves as a trusted advisor, demonstrating a positive attitude, critical thinking skills, creativity, diplomacy and above-average communication skills.
The ideal candidate should also have an appreciation of measurement and evaluation, and understand how to apply data to improve audience engagement and contribute to larger organizational goals and objectives. The impact of your insightful decision-making abilities will be evident in the successful engagement of our key stakeholders and influence attitude or behaviour changes.
Reporting to the Communications Director for the CST project, the Communications Leader is accountable for developing and implementing strategic communications plans and initiatives for the participating health organizations (Vancouver Coastal Health, Provincial Health Services Authority and Providence Health Care). The Leader provides leadership and consultation in all aspects of communications to advance the project’s strategic priorities while maintaining and strengthening the reputation of the project with both internal and external stakeholders.
