Vice‑President

An exceptional opportunity to be part of a dedicated executive team and play a vital role in the growth and expansion of Nunavut Arctic College and, especially, in its commitment to holistic programming and high-quality education for Nunavut students.

Nunavut Arctic College, an arm's length corporation of the Government of Nunavut, is tasked with a broad mandate: overseeing, developing and delivering adult education and training programs to meet the needs of Nunavummiut. Programming includes compensatory (upgrading and life skills), pre-employment, apprenticeship, certificate, diploma, university transfer, and university degree programs, using a wide range of delivery models, including on-campus programming, distance programming at 25 Community Learning Centres and via other off-campus facilities, as well as distance teaming using state-of-the-art technologies. The College also oversees the Piqqusilirivvik Inuit Cultural School, and research services carried out through the Nunavut Research Institute.

The College is seeking a results-oriented and entrepreneurial leader to join its executive ranks at a time of exciting change. Reporting to the President and working with both academic and other administrators, you will be accountable for the planning, programming, direction and evaluation of educational programs and student services, including budget development and controls. As Vice‑President, you will provide leadership for educational, corporate services and student service matters across Nunavut Arctic College, including facilitating all matters of instruction within the campus and learning centre operations. The role of VP also entails participating directly in the development of College-wide policies and procedures, and directly supervising the Senior Academic Officer and Senior Business Officer, whose support and expertise will prove invaluable in bringing about and managing change successfully.

This executive position will call for a thorough knowledge of the College’s mandate, an understanding of the requirements of relevant stakeholders, and the willingness and ability to play a proactive role in looking to the future, as you’ll be responsible for developing and implementing the necessary processes to ensure that the communities, businesses and industry served by Nunavut Arctic College have a broad and relevant range of programs and services to meet their needs.

While Nunavut Arctic College is primarily financed by the Government of Nunavut, limited government funding has made the sale of programs, courses and services to other organizations and business an increasingly important source of revenue. The College is working on developing joint ventures or partnerships with other post-secondary institutions in Canada and, as Vice-President, you’ll have a critical role to play in making this mandate a reality, including the development and implementation of strategies and processes to meet the requirements and expectations of future partner institutions.

Your track record of professional success is built on a solid foundation: a master’s degree in a relevant discipline such as Education, Public Administration or Business Administration. This has been followed by several years of leadership experience involving budget management, policy and planning accountabilities, and a strong post-secondary supervisory background. As a result, you bring a thorough knowledge of program planning in an academic setting, as well as an understanding of program review and evaluation methods, staff evaluation and performance management. Excellent communication, business development and negotiation skills will be important strengths in this multi-stakeholder environment. Fluency in more than one of Nunavut’s official languages – English, Inuktitut, French and Inuinnaqtun – would be an asset.

This is a position of trust and the successful candidate must submit a Criminal Record Check.
