Term: 18 months
The Governance Support Specialist (the “Specialist”) will support the Associate University Secretaries (the “Secretaries”) by providing: expert administrative and logistical support to the Secretaries in relation to committees, councils and other decision-making bodies of the University; and professional administrative, drafting and research support to the Secretaries with respect to University policy management. The Specialist is often the first point of contact for members of the University community in their dealings with the Secretaries, and, therefore, must personify professional courtesy, maintain current knowledge of the work of the Secretariat and observe strict confidentiality concerning discussions, correspondence and other written materials.
The Secretariat functions to support, facilitate, and guide governing bodies, committees, councils, tribunals, the University executives, and other decision-makers at the University in carrying out their mandates and on virtually any matter of operation. The Secretariat also oversees management of the University’s policy framework and risk environment. The Secretariat performs these functions independently and impartially, with extreme confidentiality, discretion and the highest level of professional ethics at the center of every activity.
The Specialist assists in achieving the mission of the Secretariat as described above, striving to enhance the department’s overall effectiveness and efficiency by performing a wide range of tasks.
