Research Librarian

Centrally located in downtown Vancouver, the British Columbia Securities Commission administers the Securities Act. Our mission is to foster fair and efficient capital markets and a competitive securities industry. We are an independent agency accountable to the legislature and the public through the Minister of Finance.

The Research Librarian will assist the Commission’s lawyers, accountants and investigators by undertaking company and legal research and by making inquiries into the public record. You will also publish a daily news service, as well as contribute to the maintenance of a focused collection of securities and administrative law materials. This position is ideal for a new or recent library school graduate with plans to embark on a carrier in either law or business librarianship. You have the curiosity as well as the initiative to thrive as a researcher in a field with which you may very well be unfamiliar: the Canadian securities industry.

The successful candidate will have:

  • A Master of Library and Information Science degree (or equivalent) from an ALA accredited program of Library Science and relevant experience, or an equivalent combination of education and work experience
  • Strong communication and analytical skills
  • The ability to work independently, as well as with team members
  • The ability to learn new information sources and technologies quickly.

The Canadian Securities Course would be an asset, as would previous business and/or legal research experience.

We offer a challenging and rewarding work environment, and a competitive compensation package that includes four weeks of annual vacation. Visit http://www.bcsc.bc.ca/employment.asp to explore this exciting opportunity and apply online. Competition #17-124. Investment restrictions apply.
