Become our Manitoba Events and Communications Coordinator
The Canadian CED Network is seeking a dynamic, organized, and collaborative person with a strong understanding of community economic development, event planning, online communications and community engagement to fill the position of Events and Communications Coordinator in our Manitoba regional office. This position is focused on CCEDNet-Manitoba’s learning events including our flagship annual conference, the Manitoba Gathering of community builders. Responsible for identifying skill and knowledge needs through member engagement, you will find appropriate facilitators and create learning and networking events that meet those needs. The successful candidate will also work to build and maintain our online presence, connecting with our national communications team and other program staff to support Manitoba communications. You are a strong communicator that can contribute to good relationships and the provision of clear and accessible information about network activities.
This is a part-time position typically 21 hours / week until June 30, 2019, with likely extension of contract. Given the nature of event management, overtime is often required at peak periods which is reconciled through compensatory time off when operationally possible. This is especially true in the fall, leading up to The Gathering.
Send resume and cover letter by May 2, 2018 to firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘Events and Communications Coordinator’ in the subject line. Please be prepared to share writing samples to demonstrate communications skills.
