•    Supportive leaders and a collaborative culture

At MSD, we’ve worked hard to make the Policy Branch a great place to work.  We are busy so we need more hands but we are proud of the collaboration that occurs across teams and the culture that we’ve created.   There’s a great vibe across the branch – with a strong sense of purpose and people focused on delivering high quality policy advice in a fun, empowering and supportive environment. More broadly across MSD, our policy and service delivery arms work closely and effectively together, and our senior leadership team is accessible and engaged in our work. We have a strong focus on staff wellbeing and personal work/life balance, and we invest in developing and supporting staff to reach their full potential.
