Working at the BC Ombudsperson’s Office means making a difference in the lives of British Columbians. We are a professional and enthusiastic team working together to ensure that public sector organizations in BC treat people fairly. Read on to see why you want to work for the BC Ombudsperson.
If you submitted an application to the Ombudsperson Officer posting on April 5th or 6th, please contact Julia Vossen. Please note, this competition is now closed and we are no longer accepting new applications.
As an Independent Office of the Legislature, our office offers the same competitive salary, benefits and pension as the BC Public Service.
We believe that quality time outside the office is vital to our employees’ satisfaction at work. Our office is located in beautiful downtown Victoria and is close to everything from lunch spots to yoga studios. Enjoy biking to work and a quick walk to a coffee shop on your break.
One of the benefits of working with us is access to a variety of training and learning opportunities offered by the BC Public Service. We also offer a wide-range of external training specifically related to ombudship and investigations. We encourage our employees to pursue training to learn new skills beneficial to their current role and future career opportunities.
We are proud to foster engagement and encourage feedback from our employees. We value our staff’s unique backgrounds and expertise and acknowledge our combined strengths.
Our broad jurisdiction means your work is diverse. We hear complaints about a variety of issues and your expertise and knowledge will be utilized to solve sometimes simple and sometimes very complex problems. You may help a client gain access to benefits they were previously denied or you may help someone navigate a complicated bureaucratic system. Either way, our work and the result, is tangible.
