Job Description

Fantastic senior-level Human Resources and Labour Relations opportunity with one of Vancouver’s most well-established and stable companies. Well-rounded generalist role. Working on a large and collaborative HR team. Supporting employees who are part of 6 unions. Very competitive total compensation package with some great perks!

Who- the Company:
Our client has many decades of history in British Columbia and has grown to become one of the largest privately-held companies based in Vancouver. The company is a very stable organization with diversified operations, a multi-year billion-dollar contract with a significant client, and a bright future. This company believes in the importance of health & safety for their employees and customers, corporate social responsibility, and diversity & inclusivity.

What- the Role:
Our client is seeking a new Senior Human Resources Business Partner, Labour Relations for their growing team. The Sr HRBP will be joining an overall HR function of over 50 people, and specifically a team of 11 (HRBPs and HR Generalists) that reports into the Director, Human Resources. The new Sr HRBP and one HRBP will be responsible for directly supporting approximately 1500 unionized employees (almost entirely based in BC) who are part of 6 unions represented by 1 collective agreement. The Sr HRBP is not directly involved in grievances or collective bargaining- that is done by a Labour Relations Specialist. The team also has a dedicated Investigator, so the Sr HRBP will support and get involved in investigations, but it won’t be a primary focus of the role. The Sr HRBP is responsible for performance management, workforce planning, leadership coaching, succession planning, employee relations and labour relations (including investigations), rolling out new HR programs and policies, etc.
This is a very well-rounded generalist role, and the Sr HRBP will get to collaborate with a variety of stakeholders and peers. The company has an HR Centre of Excellence model, including Talent Acquisition, Total Rewards, Payroll, and Learning & Development. SWIM will provide interested and qualified candidates with a thorough job description.

Who- the Candidate:
We are seeking candidates with at least 8 years and preferably 10+ years progressive experience in Human Resources, with at least 3 years specializing in Canadian Labour Relations. Qualified candidates will have experience supporting large and diverse employee populations (mix of unionized employees and non-unionized management) and will be skilled at leadership coaching. We are looking for folks who have excellent knowledge of BC and Canadian employment law. An eye for process improvements and a solutions-oriented mindset are very important in this role.
A successful Sr HRBP, LR at this company will be someone who embraces change, who approaches process improvements with a patient and collaborative attitude, and who loves contributing positively to a dynamic corporate culture.  

Headquartered in Greater Vancouver (not in downtown Vancouver). Initially full-time on site (during training & onboarding), but eventually the Sr HRBP can work on a hybrid schedule- please discuss further with SWIM.  Free on-site employee parking.

How Much:
Base salary will be commensurate with years of labour relations and human resources work experience as well as relevant HR qualifications and education.  The range on the base salary is $105,000 to $126,000, with the top-end reserved for candidates who meet all sought-after qualifications and who have at least 10 years of relevant work experience. Additionally, the Sr HRBP, LR will be eligible for a performance-based bonus, a pension matching plan, excellent health, dental & vision benefits, and other great perks such as parental leave top-up, a childcare benefit, a personal spending allowance, and a mental health allowance.  Please discuss your total compensation expectations further with SWIM.
