Position Overview

You have the technical prowess to create air-tight security solutions for even the most complex problems. Even better, you thoroughly understand compliance standards and ensure your solutions meet business requirements. You know how to utilize data to continuously innovate and learn new methods to serve end users better with each project you complete. We're looking for someone like you to be our Systems, Applications and Products (SAP) Security Lead. 


In this role, you'll be responsible for addressing daily end-user tickets, issues and audit requirements. You'll also support our SAP systems and assist with ongoing user access reviews. 


We're committed to building a greener future in which we reduce our customers' emissions. We need collaborators, innovators and leaders like you to help us achieve our goal. Join us in re-thinking our energy future. 

In year 1, you will:

  • Familiarize yourself with FortisBC procedures, audit processes and SAP landscape, and build relationships with our employee end-user community.
  • Help define forward-thinking improvements to align with security compliance and controls.
  • Implement solutions and ensure they're thoroughly tested and documented.
  • Begin your second year objectives

In year 2, you will:

  • Become more involved with audit requirements and SAP projects.
  • Lead projects, such as SAP security design, Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) compliance, and report on existing and new technologies.
  • Conduct technical research, analyze data and work with internal and external resources to resolve complex and technical security issues. 

What it takes:

  • A degree or diploma in a relevant field of study, and/or five or more years of SAP experience, or an equivalent combination of related experience. 
  • An SAP security certification is considered an asset.  
  • Excellent prioritization skills for managing multiple requests, tickets and competing deadlines. 
  • Great attention to detail to complete process-orientated tasks to achieve consistent results.
  • Exceptional logical and critical thinking skills for developing effective technical solutions for a wide range of security issues. 
  • A proven customer-centric approach for providing the best possible support to end users.

In this role, you will have the option to participate in a flexible work program, enabling you to work from an approved flex location in British Columbia up to 85 days a year (equivalent to approximately two days a week), subject to business or operational needs.
