We’re looking for a dynamic, engaging and community-engaged Northerner to join our team in order to help us with a client project.
We’re a consulting firm specifically for non-profit organizations. We help non-profits with governance and leadership, project coordination and management, fundraising and fund development, and so much more. We do all this while trying to challenge non-profits to bring equity, social justice and anti-oppression into their boardrooms and operations.
While our team is all over the place, our CEO tends to share their time between Yellowknife and Regina. This project is for a client in the NWT, so we’re looking for someone with personal lived experience about what it means to live and work in the NWT. You’ll be working from home or, if you’d rather, from our co-working space in Yellowknife (we’re stoked to be members of Cloudworks).
You should send us your CV and cover letter if:
- You have experience working in or leading non-profits in the NWT.
- You love doing community outreach and talking to people in their communities about the work they’re doing.
- You love problem-solving and tackling seemingly insurmountable problems.
- You have experience in leading interviews and collecting qualitative data.
About the Position
- This is a contract gig. We’d rather hire someone who has experience as an independent contractor, but we also know this can be scary for people so we can either walk you through this or, if you’re the right candidate, we can talk about employment instead of a contract.
- The position is remunerated between $25-35 per hour, depending on your experience. We can also talk about flat rates, if you’d rather, but it’ll all depend on a number of factors. If you want to chat more about this, get in touch.
- You’ll be working on the project pretty part-time until the end of October. It’s definitely not full-time hours, so we don’t expect tons of flexibility, but there’s components of the project that need to happen during the work-day, so you’ll need to have some capacity to get away from another job if it’s a 9 to 5.
All tasks will be shared amongst all project team members, based on capacity and expertise of the entire project team.
- Develop survey instruments to collect information from NWT non-profits, municipalities and First Nations governments about emergency preparedness.
- Develop interview instruments and facilitate interviews with community stakeholders about emergency preparedness.
- Complete an environmental scan of emergency preparedness organizations across Northern Canada.
- Analyze qualitative and quantitative data and compile findings into a report.
- Support client organization with developing potential processes to improve emergency response based on findings and collaborate with client’s team to implement processes.
- Participate in project meetings.
