Some of the more interesting employment opportunities we've spotted this week include:
, a local organization that is dedicated to solving the city's social, economic and environmental woes, is attempting to fill two positions. The project officer
position it's hiring for involves working with various stakeholders to design and implement the organization's new programs. In contrast, the project manager
position involves being responsible for overseeing all of CivicAction's leadership programs, including its Emerging Leaders Network and DiverseCity Fellows. The deadline to apply for both positions is January 2.
For those with a journalism background, the Literary Review of Canada
is hiring a new editor
. According to its posting, the ideal candidate is someone with extensive experience in print media (sorry, young journalists!), an ability to work cordially with a wide array of writers and a knack for networking. In other words, everything one would expect from an editorial position. The deadline to apply is January 2.
Also on the culture front: SummerWorks
, the city's venerable summer theatre and music festival, is hiring a new general manager
(PDF link). A minimum of four years of experience in arts administration is required for this role. Reporting to and working extensively with Artistic Producer Michael Rubenfeld (check out the interview Yonge Street
did with him), the festival's new general manager will be responsible for helping manage the festival's budget, deciding on its critical path, and overseeing staff hiring—among many other duties. The deadline to apply is January 10.
Finally, The Art Gallery of Ontario
is hiring an assistant
for its development division. Not only is this an opportunity to work in one of the city's most handsome building, it's also a chance to help the gallery execute on its special events. Responsibilities include drafting relevant written materials as needed, maintaining a record of each event, and helping with the logistics of each event. The deadline to apply for this position is December 24.
