and stakeholders – including other players in the economic development ecosystem
and Small Business BC’s key funders in the provincial and federal governments –
to meet SBBC’s goals of ensuring small businesses in the province succeed in
their business operations; providing access to a high profile network of people to
support them in starting, growing and transitioning their businesses; and being
known as the leading resource to ensure the development and sustainability of
their enterprises. Reporting to the Board of Directors, you will lead a dedicated
and professional team to implement the Board’s vision, and will work with various
like-minded partners to leverage each others strengths and identify and fill gaps.
Recognizing your mandate to support small businesses throughout the province
– including rural and remote locations – you will look for ways to partner or use
technology to ensure services are reaching entrepreneurs where they reside.
As the ideal candidate, you are a proven leader who is effective and comfortable
relating to small businesses owners, government partners, and front line staff.
Your blend of experience allows you to relate to entrepreneurs and understand
their needs, while also being able to work with government partners to deliver on
expectations. You are experienced at supporting a Board of Directors in setting a
vision and strategy that will ensure sustainability and relevance, and you are skilled
at measuring performance against the strategic plan in a way that demonstrates
how the organization is making a difference. You have implemented technology
to enhance service delivery, ensuring a broad geographic reach. You are skilled at
working with partners to find synergies and ensure a streamlined experience for
small businesses. Your experience is ideally augmented by a degree in commerce
or a related discipline.
