We are looking for two Deans to lead our School of Trades and Transportation and our School of Technology and Environment. The School of Trades and Transportation includes all programs related to the building, manufacturing, marine, aviation and automotive sectors. The School of Technology and Environment includes all programs related to the sectors of engineering technologies; the environment, natural resources and sustainability; surveying, mapping and geomatics. It also includes programming related to IT and data analytics. Based in Halifax, you will build provincial partnerships with sector-based employers to ensure our programming meets industry needs and provides students with the most innovative, challenging and applied education you can get in Nova Scotia and beyond. You will lead the design and development of all programming in the School which include certificates, diplomas, continuing education, apprenticeship and customized learning; and you will ensure this programming keeps current and progressive in these dynamic fields. You will accomplish all of this by working collaboratively with partners across central departments and campuses and in a way that supports the College’s strategic plan and priorities.

We are Nova Scotia Community College. Our mission is to help "Build Nova Scotia's economy and quality of life through education and innovation." We offer more than 130 advanced skill programs in five academic schools, serving the whole province through a network of 13 campuses and a vibrant eCampus. Fully 86% of our graduates are employed, most in their field of study; close to 90% have chosen to live and work in Nova Scotia.

You hold a graduate degree or equivalent sum of relevant education and experience and you have at least ten years of relevant occupational experience in one or more of the sectors within the School and/or within a post-secondary environment specializing in one or more of these sectors. You have recent experience in a senior leadership role within a large, complex organization. Known for your ability to forge powerful partnerships, you have demonstrated ability to lead large initiatives; working with educational, community, government and industry leaders. You are able to influence, facilitate, negotiate and manage multiple stakeholders with various and sometimes conflicting interests to achieve a cohesive and quality approach to program quality that meets organizational objectives. You are a creative and action-oriented leader who demonstrates a passion for education and an unstoppable commitment to learning and innovation. This allows you to inspire teams to do great things.
