On behalf of the entire Camosun College community, I would like to thank you for choosing to invest your talents and time here. Our students are at the heart of everything we do, and your contribution to the college helps provide an exceptional learning experience for them.
Over the course of my human resources career, I have been privileged to work in a variety of public sector organizations. I am proud of the places I have served and am honoured that my career has been devoted to organizations that exist to help individuals create a better tomorrow for themselves and their families. I am filled with that same sense each day as I come to work at Camosun College - something important is happening on our campuses and I am honoured to able to play a part in it.
As a Camosun College employee, you are invited to join your colleagues and coworkers as a valued member of a highly capable, creative, compassionate and community-focused workforce. Together, we are relentless in our passion for excellence, innovation, and service. We proudly embrace diversity, celebrate accomplishments, and are resolute in our commitment to serving the South Island community and beyond.
Many organizations claim that “people are our most valuable resource.” At Camosun College, we think a little differently. For us, people are our only resource. Without people like you who teach our students, lead our organization, deliver our programs, manage our finances, provide services, and keep our campuses well-maintained and safe, we would not be able to do the amazing things we do, time and time again.
As the Executive Director of Human Resources, my sincere wish is for your workplace experience to be as positive and fulfilling as possible. The Human Resources team is committed to serving you with respect and professionalism each time we have occasion to interact. It is our role to create and sustain an environment that is respectful, where you can do your best work – so please let us know how we can most effectively serve and support you.
When I first joined the college, I was struck by one familiar and consistent message – people absolutely love working here! We all share a passion for and commitment to life-changing learning. I felt that I had “come home” and I hope that you also find a true sense of belonging as a member of our community!
If you are new to Camosun College, I would like to extend a warm welcome and wish you every success as you begin this next chapter in your career! If you are already an employee, I would like to thank you for your contributions and ongoing dedication to our college.
Welcome to the Camosun College community!
