Opportunity for Project Manager – CANADIAN BIOSPHERE RESERVES
October 22, 2017
Because PM-Volunteers is gaining a reputation for motivating exceptional project managers, we are occasionally approached about exceptional paid positions. We were approached recently to “spread the word” about an exceptional full time position that is closing November 8, 2017.
Canada’s 18 UNESCO Biosphere Reserves (BRs) are leaders in creating sustainable communities across Canada, while conserving the country’s natural and cultural heritage. As model regions and dynamic learning sites Biosphere Reserves strengthen Canadian values and national priorities including climate change adaptation and reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples.
Over the next 2.5 years, the PM will be primarily responsible for managing and implementing the ‘Pathway to Canada Target 1 in Canada’s 18 UNESCO Biosphere Reserves (2017-2020)’ project as funded via Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC). Concurrently, the PM will be expected to strategically assess the potential of CBRA and to build capacity.
CBRA’s long term goal is to re-establish capacity as a national network. The PM position may lead to an Executive Director position leading the national organization and networking Canadian BRs. For the right person, this current employment opportunity may be a bridge to this long-term leadership position.
Clearly, this is not your average PM position. If you are interested or know someone who might be interested, google Project Manager Canadian Biosphere Reserve for a complete job description.
