This posting is to establish an eligibility list for future permanent and/or temporary vacancies in Victoria, BC.

The Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FOIPPA) enables the public to request and obtain copies of records held by B.C. government ministries or the Office of the Premier, when those records are not routinely available. Within the Ministry of Citizens’ Services, the Information Access Operations (IAO) branch has a lead role in ensuring government meets its legislated responsibilities with regard to the FOIPPA. Staff at IAO carries out the day-to day work of providing timely responses to freedom of information (FOI) requests. This includes helping citizens through the request process, working with ministries to ensure consistency and compliance with FOI requirements, publishing responses to general FOI requests, and providing records management support to ministries, crown corporations and agencies.

This job profile is a developmental position consisting of the FOI Analyst at Grid 18 and a Senior FOI Analyst at Grid 21. Successful candidates can be placed at a level that is commensurate with their level of experience and skill. The difference between the FOI Analyst and the Senior FOI Analyst is the complexity, scope and sensitivity of the requests handled; a greater requirement for appeal mediation, and a more in-depth understanding of the FOIPPA and other related legislation.
