Department Information

The Department of Finance has the mandate to provide leadership and direction to the public service in all areas of finance and human resource management. This mandate includes negotiating major financial arrangements with the federal government, providing analysis and advice to the Financial Management Board, and ensuring that financial and information resources are managed effectively, efficiently and economically. This mandate also includes the recruitment and retention of a competent public service that is representative of the people it serves and the development of programs and services that effectively serve the human resource needs of the public service.

Job Information

The Management Board Secretariat Analyst provides strategic and financial advice to the Financial Management Board and manages the government-wide budgetary process while meeting the requirements of the Legislative Assembly.

The core work of the Analyst involves helping departments to identify, generate, collect, analyze, and act on evidence describing the performance of programs and services.  As such, the most critical skill is evidence/data creation and analysis.  Additional skills necessary to do this effectively are: diplomacy, getting departments on board and managing what can be a charged environment; creativity, to find solutions that work for both Finance and departments; adaptability, to be able to handle sudden changes in direction as needs change quickly; constructive assertiveness, in order to stand one’s ground in a way that does not alienate others; and, proficiency in Word, Excel, and general communications ability, in order to analyze data and communicate findings clearly using available software tools.

The Analyst is expected to operate with minimal direct supervision to deliver the results required by the Financial Management Board and Department of Finance without damaging the department or its relationships with other departments or the public.  This requires many interlocking skills and a high degree of emotional intelligence.  Applicants should be prepared to demonstrate their abilities in these areas.

The above qualifications are typically attained through completion of an undergraduate degree or professional designation in the areas of program assessment, program evaluation, public administration or project management combined with 3 years related work experience. Equivalencies will be considered.
