The Association of Industry Sector Councils (AISC) represents the interests of 32,000 small-and medium-sized businesses and 370,000 workers and their families in Nova Scotia. Working closely with the 14 industry sector councils, AISC’s goal is to attract, train, and retain talent to build a robust Nova Scotia, by sharing ideas, resources, and expertise.
AISC has identified the need to hire a General Manager, a newly created position that will be a critical element in the successful implementation of its strategic plan.
Reporting directly to the Board of Directors, this highly collaborative and solution-oriented leader will assume the lead in executing the strategic plan and building and maintaining enduring relationships with the industry sector councils.
What qualities are required as General Manager?
As the ideal candidate, you have well-developed communication abilities, superior knowledge of business functions, and strong leadership qualities. You have experience working with associations and networked organizations and bring an understanding of labour market information and its use in human resource management and labour market planning by industry and government.
