TTC – Director, Talent Acquisition and Outreach

The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) is North America's third largest transit system and has been recognized as one of the top places to work in the Greater Toronto Area. Guided by a forward-thinking strategic plan, the TTC's vision is to be a transit system that makes Toronto and Canada proud.  Central to the provision of service excellence are the people who deliver it, and it is within this context that the TTC invites applications and nominations for the role of Director, Talent Acquisition and Outreach.

Reporting to the Chief, Culture & Diversity and working in partnership with a range of individuals within this 14,000-person+ organization, the Director, Talent Acquisition and Outreach oversees all aspects of: recruitment; retention strategies for the organization; compensation; internal client group hiring/partnering strategies; requests for proposals (RFP) for talent acquisition services; and more.  The ideal candidate will help modernize and create a talent acquisition centre of excellence while promoting TTC as an employer of choice to a broad range of communities and talent. 

The successful candidate possesses comprehensive knowledge of recruitment and outreach practices, and has been recognized for growing and enhancing their current or a previous talent acquisition portfolio.  Possessing knowledge of current employment legislation (Ontario Human Rights Code, Employment Standards Act, Employment Equity Act, etc.), the candidate selected must bring a lens of reconciliation, equity, diversity, inclusion, and accessibility to their work, thereby ensuring TTC’s staff complement reflects the communities being served.  Knowledge of and/or direct experience with collective agreements and collective bargaining is preferred, as is someone who sees themselves as a systems thinker and a champion for technology, data, and strategy. A degree or diploma from a recognized post-secondary institution is sought with an HR certification being highly desired, and several years of managerial experience is viewed as an essential qualification given the size of the organization and scope of the role.
