The FSA is currently seeking an Executive Director.
As one of the largest faculty and staff associations in BC, the BCIT Faculty & Staff Association (FSA) is a membership-driven, certified trade union that represents full-time and part-time technological faculty and staff at BCIT. Through representation on committees, negotiation with BCIT and advocacy for our members, we work to advance the employment interests of members and improve working conditions at BCIT.
Joining an innovative and creative team of 9, the Executive Director (ED) drives the “RNA” of the FSA: Representation, Negotiation, Advocacy. The role carries the primary accountability and principal responsibility for the FSA’s work. The new ED will strive to support a collaborative, cohesive team, to do meaningful work to support, protect, and advance the workplace rights of the FSA membership.
As a cohesive team, we strive to do meaningful work to support, protect, and advance the workplace rights of the FSA membership in their provision of public, polytechnic offerings. As one of the largest faculty and staff associations in BC, we are proud that our office focuses on effectively representing, negotiating, and advocating for the interests of FSA members. We recognize that complex workplaces thrive when each FSA employee is able to fully contribute their skills, knowledge, and wisdom towards this purpose-based work.
The FSA differs from many other union environments in that it does not have a steward model. The membership elects a board of directors who delegates the association’s management to an Executive Director and a professional staff team.
The FSA is actively committed to creating a diverse and inclusive workplace. An open and diverse community fosters the inclusion of voices that have been underrepresented or discouraged. We encourage applications from qualified members of groups that have been marginalized on any grounds enumerated under the B.C. Human Rights Code, including but not limited to: status as a First Nation, Metis, Inuit, or Indigenous person, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, racialization, disability, neurodiversity, political belief, religion, marital or family status, or age.
