About Us



The ALIS careers, learning, and employment website, at



Housed within the Employment Services branch of the Community and Social Services ministry, the ALIS team of cross-functional project and product managers collaborates closely with partners in Education, Advanced Education, Labour and Immigration, and other ministries across government.

Role

The Employment Services branch is seeking an insightful relationship builder to demonstrate the ALIS website to diverse stakeholders, evaluate how different audiences are using it, and bring that knowledge back to the ALIS team to inform continuous improvement of the site.



The world of work is constantly evolving. Applying design thinking, software-as-a-service, and continuous improvement principles from the private sector, we’re evolving with it. Using both virtual and in-person methods, you will be responsible for promoting ALIS and demonstrating different aspects of the site to a wide variety of audiences. This includes leaders and front-line staff across government, teachers, career counsellors, career development practitioners, campus career centers, contracted career services providers, community organizations, and stakeholder groups, with the goal of helping them better serve the career, learning, and employment needs of Albertans.



On your own, in partnership with other areas of government, and through contracts that you procure and manage, you will apply a variety of active listening, facilitative, and evaluative techniques including business analysis, design thinking, focus group testing, and outcomes-based evaluation, to gain a rich understanding of how ALIS is being used in the wild. This includes understanding what’s working, what isn’t working, and how the tools, data, and content on the website can continue to be improved to better meet the needs of Albertans and the career advisors who serve them.



Regardless of where in Alberta you’re working from, you’ll be surrounded and supported by a diverse team of experienced innovators who are passionate about making a positive impact on the lives and careers of Albertans. The Employment Services branch is highly distributed across 17 different offices throughout rural and urban Alberta – connecting virtually comes naturally to us. You’ll be assigned to a nearby government office and hybrid working from home schedule may be considered, as long as you can remain productive and deliver results. Some travel to in-person events will be required.
