As one commenter noted in my previous thread, the timing of this is unfortunate, to say the least. I assume it is only because Corbett is reaching 65 or some such, and not because of the present investigation. But even if that’s true, it would throw a monkey wrench into whatever investigations are still ongoing:
Elections Canada is currently seeking a new Commissioner of Canadian Elections...
The successful candidate will be a senior executive with significant experience in legal and/or regulatory decision making on complex and sensitive issues for a private or public sector organization. As a seasoned professional, the successful candidate will have significant experience in interpreting the provisions of statutes, regulations, policies and other enabling frameworks, as well as in assessing the relevance of precedents in order to render decisions, and will have the ability to make recommendations within the framework of the law.
The successful candidate must have proven experience in handling sensitive and complex matters. He or she must be able to build and maintain effective relationships with parliamentarians, senior government officials and other stakeholders. The candidate must be a Canadian citizen with a degree from a recognized university in a field relevant to the position. The place of work is located in the National Capital Region. Proficiency in both official languages is required.
An additional statement outlines the job qualifications:
- a “degree from a recognized university”
- management experience
- 20 years’ experience in legal practice and/or government regulation
- knowledge of the Canadian parliamentary system (duh)
- “ability to analyze differing opinions and viewpoints in complex situations”
- “no partisan activities or party affiliation in at least the last 5 years”
If you want the job, email your C.V. to Lynda Naveda at LNconsulting@rogers.com (I wish I was kidding on this point). Applications are due this Friday, March 2.Tweet
