The Business/Higher Education Roundtable (BHER) has an immediate opening for a Senior Product Development Manager to support the implementation of its Work Integrated Learning (WIL) Strategy.
The role will focus on developing and promoting tools and resources for stakeholder organizations across the country in order to deliver on BHER’s mandate to improve the Canadian WIL ecosystem and provide 44,000 WIL placements over the next two and a half years.
The successful applicant will work with a team of WIL strategy staff at BHER to develop tools and resources tailored towards the needs of employers across the country. The completed tools and resources will be predominantly web-based and reflect a combination of existing knowledge (to avoid duplication) and new, innovative approaches to sharing knowledge on WIL. The information to be shared will include, for example, information on the return on investment from work integrated learning for employers, how to access funding opportunities for WIL, training for employers and their employees that supports the use of WIL in the workplace, accessing students to engage in work integrated learning, and brokering knowledge on the latest developments in the WIL ecosystem.
The Senior Product Development Manager will also promote BHER’s value proposition to employers and post-secondary education institutions that the tools and resources will help to ensure employers can be optimally prepared for using WIL to address their business needs – needs that include facing an increasing pace of innovation, disruptive new technologies and rising global competition.
The successful candidate will also play a key knowledge brokering role in showcasing BHER’s success stories to various stakeholders.
