Role: Senior Manager, Responsible Digital Technologies
Location of work: Anywhere in Canada
About the Role
The CIO Strategy Council is looking for an exceptional Senior Manager to join our team.
You will play a critical role in driving the work of the CIO Strategy Council as a national leader in harnessing the collective expertise of Canada’s CIOs to mobilize on common digital priorities. You will lead a broad portfolio of projects creating the conditions for the development of responsible, trustworthy, and sustainable digital technologies in Canada. You will:
- Identify and pursue new opportunities for responsible digital technologies standards (relating to people, processes, and/or technology);
- Identify and pursue opportunities for the adoption of responsible digital technology standards in Canada and globally, including partnering with assurance organizations, training and education institutions, and compliance technology vendors;
- Lead strategic initiatives and identify, pursue, and lead other ecosystem-development activities.
You will report to the Vice President, Strategy and Partnerships and will be in regular communication with the whole team.
What You Bring
Passionate about Canada’s digital transformation and creating a trusted digital ecosystem, you have knowledge of key issues relating to the development of responsible, sustainable digital technologies (e.g. responsible AI, data governance, sustainable tech) acquired in your education and/or previous roles. You appreciate the importance of standards as guardrails on the digital economy.
You are entrepreneurial and strategic, with an ability to spot and pursue opportunities. You have a keen understanding of how to foster trusting relationships and partnerships to achieve shared objectives. An effective communicator, you can toggle seamlessly between diverse audiences and platforms. You have experience managing complex, multi-stakeholder projects from beginning to end.
You are confident, self-directed, and a quick study, but not afraid to ask for help or own your mistakes. You are enthusiastic, upbeat, and a consummate team player. Calm under pressure, you deliver on tight deadlines and can juggle multiple priorities.
Nice to Have
Subject matter expertise in one or more areas relating to responsible, sustainable technology. Existing experience working in Canada’s digital ecosystem. English/French bilingualism. Expertise with a range of communications and marketing tools. Experience developing and managing training programs.
What We Bring
The CIO Strategy Council is Canada’s national forum that brings together the country’s most forward-thinking chief information officers and executive technology leaders to collectively mobilize on common digital priorities. Cutting across major sectors of the Canadian economy – public, private and not for profit – the Council harnesses the collective expertise and action of Canada’s CIOs to accelerate Canada’s digital transformation. In 2019, the Standards Council of Canada accredited the CIO Strategy Council to develop National Standards of Canada supporting the data-driven economy.
Founded in 2017, the CIO Strategy Council operates like a high-growth start-up. You will join a small, collegial, cross-functional team. Experts in our own areas, we also appreciate that innovation comes from cross-pollination. While you will have a lot of autonomy to drive your own projects, you will learn from your colleagues’ diverse backgrounds. In this role, you will gain excellent exposure to leading technology players and cutting-edge issues. While you will work from home, we move quickly, and you will have regular contact with your colleagues.
Compensation will be calculated based on individual experience and expertise. The range for this position is $65,000 to $90,000. We also offer comprehensive benefits and vacation.
