Sent on behalf Karyn Bruneel, Executive Director, Provincial and Demonstration Schools Branch

Hello everyone,

In follow-up to my previous e-mail regarding Tania Anderson accepting a secondment opportunity with Cabinet Office, I am please to announce that effective June 22, 2019 Indira O’Brien will be acting HR Manager while the recruitment process is completed.

Indira has been working with the Provincial and Demonstration Schools Branch (PDSB) as an HR Consultant since May 2016. She also has previous experience with PDSB as she worked with the branch in 2013-14. Indira brings a wealth of knowledge and experience obtained over many years with the OPS. Her career started in the human resources stream and she has worked in a variety of HR related roles with several ministries including the Ministry of Health, Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services and Ministry of Revenue. This background and experience will be beneficial to the HR team and our branch.

Please join me in welcoming Indira to her new role.
