Powell River Board of Education
Learners Preparing for the Challenges of Tomorrow
Human Resources

The Human Resources Department strives to recruit and retain exemplary employees who will work together to help all our learners achieve their potential.  To achieve this goal we work very closely with our employees, their union representatives, and their supervisors.  We also work to ensure that policies, procedures and collective agreements are properly administered in a consistent and effective manner.

The Human Resources Department coordinates the day-to-day personnel functions required for all of the district’s 300+ employees:  teachers, support staff, principals/vice-principals, and exempt staff.  Department responsibilities include recruitment, orientation, administration of benefits, employee wellness, posting and filling, leaves, replacement of absent employees, and labour relations. 

For those who are interested in working in our district, please check the Careers section of this website for more information about current vacancies.  Please note that School District 47 does not accept general unsolicited resumes.
