BC Housing is a trusted leader and partner in providing housing solutions for British Columbians. Through safe, affordable and quality housing, we truly make a positive difference in people’s lives and communities.
We have an exciting opportunity for a full-time Senior Project Officer to play a pivotal role in the delivery of affordable housing across the Province. Based at our conveniently located Burnaby office and traveling to sites when required, you’ll be responsible for planning and managing a diverse portfolio of social housing, group home, and special facility development projects from initiation and warranty inspection, to final occupancy.
As a Senior Project Officer, you’ll also be responsible for providing assistance to non-profit housing providers and local communities as they develop their housing developments. You may also have the opportunity to work with the Real Estate division on the negotiation of property acquisitions, dispositions, and interests of land.
Of course, no two days are likely to be the same in this role. If you’re seeking a rewarding opportunity that offers lots of challenge, collaboration, and a healthy work/life balance, this could be the role for you!
You’ll be a great fit for this role if you have previous project management experience, ideally related to the development of multi-residential housing. You’ll also have a university degree in business administration, project management, land use planning, real estate development financing or a related field.
Most importantly, we’re seeking candidates who share the values of our organization and who are committed to helping those in need. You’ll also be equipped with superior analytical, planning, organizational and problem-solving skills and have proven ability to manage multiple, large-scale projects. Previous experience negotiating and brokering an array of agendas and working knowledge of multiple-unit housing development is needed, as is computer proficiency.
Due to the nature of this role, a valid BC driver’s license, access to a reliable vehicle and the ability to travel is also required.
This year, BC Housing has once again been recognized as one of BC’s Top 55 Employers and one of Canada’s Greenest Employers! That doesn’t happen by accident.
