Throughout our history, NBCC has been a driving force and significant contributor to the social and economic prosperity of New Brunswick.  Despite the challenges of limited resources and shrinking populations, NBCC is poised to rise to new heights through our bold five-year Strategic Plan: Together We Rise. As we enter the third year of our plan, we are singularly focused on seizing opportunities for new and innovative ways to educate more learners and add value to our communities.

To reach and to welcome more learners, we must adopt new and flexible modes of program and course delivery in ways that consider diverse and individual needs. More flexibility and increased life-long opportunities will allow us to meet learners where they are today and support them in turning their aspirations into reality. This includes supporting those for whom literacy, numeracy or language preparedness are barriers to post-secondary education and providing the appropriate financial support to improve accessibility. We aim to create a sense of belonging through life-changing and life-long connections.

NBCC is searching for a new Vice-President Academic and Research who will join NBCC’s new President, and the entire College community, in fulfilling our strategic vision. We require a proven, successful leader in post-secondary education with a collaborative and transparent approach to leadership; a strong commitment to research and innovation; an established record of designing and executing high-level, complex initiatives; a passion for nurturing a sense-of-belonging among students and staff; and a courageous commitment to leading the change that is necessary for us to double learner participation by 2022.

Achieving our ambitious goals requires strategic alignment, collective effort, and dynamic leadership. We are seeking a leader who will ensure we are all pulling in the same direction. Our next Vice-President Academic and Research will be integral to catapulting our College towards our vision of success in 2022.

Qualifications required for this opportunity include a Master’s Degree in Education, Educational Leadership or a related field with a minimum of eight (8) years of progressively responsible senior management experience with at least five (5) years of demonstrated supervisory experience. Preference will be given to candidates with academic, research and/or administrative experience in a post-secondary education environment. Candidates must clearly demonstrate how they meet these qualifications on their resumes.

Written and spoken competence in English is required.

Other combinations of education and experience may be considered as equivalent. Subject to competition response, the minimum qualifications may be raised.

NBCC offers a comprehensive compensation and benefits package that includes a competitive salary for this position.

All applicants must be eligible to work in Canada at the time of application. This competition may be used to fill future vacancies at the same level. We promote an equal opportunity work environment.
