CAUT has created two additional assistant executive director positions and invited applications for one that will begin on July 1, 2005. The other will be posted in 2006.
"Our assistant executive directors provide tactical and strategic advice to member associations on collective bargaining issues, liaise with chief negotiators, assist with our education program and help with academic freedom cases," said James Turk, executive director of CAUT.
CAUT is seeking applicants who have considerable experience and demonstrated competence in collective bargaining in the post-secondary education sector and who have a solid grasp of academic freedom, tenure and collegial governance issues.
"We are also looking for people with the ability to make effective presentations to large groups and the ability to write clearly and persuasively," says Turk. "In addition, candidates should have a graduate degree and knowledge of CAUT policies and programs - and the ability to work in both official languages is a definite asset."
The positions are part of the staff bargaining unit with a salary range of $96,900-$102,000.
