Senior Human Resources Leader, Canada, Oakville, ON

Location: Oakville, ON

Salary: 90-100 USD + bonus + benefits

Job Description:

You are agile, tenacious, resilient.  You are a senior leader in the Human Resources field – someone who has a solid track record in dealing with senior management as well as leading your own HR Team.  You know not only how to manage systems that are already in place, but how to implement them.  You are ready for the kind of Human Resources leadership opportunity that only comes around rarely in any career.

Our client is a US-based manufacturing company with 26 locations in 13 countries around the world, including a significant presence in Canada – they’ve targeted that up to 50% of their available market is now Canadian.  With their head office in Oakville they are on the verge of incredible growth.

You’ll report directly to the VP of Human Resources in Texas – a sharp, talented, woman who was herself enticed to join this company because of the quality of the senior leadership there – with dual reporting to the President of Canadian Operations.

Some of the accomplishments you’ll be able to take on with this role:

=         Use the company’s exciting level of growth to transform the organization

=         The establishment of new Human Resources systems and procedures

=         The implementation of a first-ever HRIS System

=         The leadership of a multi-location HR team in several locations in Canada

=         The opportunity to get involved with cross-functional teams to solve problems across the parent company

To be successful – not to put too fine a point on it – you need to have a track record of having done these things in the past.  This isn’t a growth opportunity for someone who figures they could handle it.  It’s not the role for someone who is looking at a stretch opportunity.  There’s just too much on the line.  This is for a seasoned leader who has taken on these kinds of challenges and conquered them – and is looking for the right place to do that again.  Naturally, you also need the education (degree as a minimum) and CPHR designation to back it up.  

If you’re excited about this opportunity, please submit your resume in confidence to or by using the Apply Now link below this posting.
