Saskatchewan’s Health Quality Council (HQC) is looking for an individual with a unique blend of project management and policy analyst competencies. The selected candidate will work exclusively with the Provincial Kaizen Operations Team (PKOT) Lead – Emergency Department Waits and Patient Flow Initiative. Note: HQC is open to secondments from other organizations. Given the wide scope of activities required of this position, HQC will also consider hiring two candidates to fill this role on part-time basis (potentially two individuals working 0.5 of a full-time equivalent).
The Project and Policy Consultant will be a member of the PKOT core team and provide project management support and input on strategic direction; coordinate and synthesize data and literature related to the PKOT activities; and provide policy analysis as required.
The Project and Policy Consultant will also act as a project manager and coordinator for the PKOT and Provincial Stakeholder Advisory Group’s task teams.
The successful candidate will be a detail-oriented individual who can:
- Provide leadership and direction to support provincial, regional and local interdepartmental and inter-sectorial program strategies and initiatives related to the activities of the PKOT and task teams
- Coordinate, lead and participate in Lean activities related to the Emergency Department Waits and Patient Flow Initiative
This is a full-time position of 37.5 hours per week, for a period of one year with the possibility of extension. This position is located in Saskatoon; however, given the provincial focus of this initiative, the individual(s) hired may not be required to be located in Saskatoon. Availability to travel within the province will be required.
HQC thanks all candidates for applying. However, only those applicants selected for an interview will be contacted.
This posting will remain open until April 15, 2015.
For more information, please see the detailed job description.
