If you’re passionate about ending sexualized and gender-based violence and have communication and promotions skills, apply to join our fab team! We’re hiring an Outreach Coordinator! This is a 24 hour a week 3-year term position that pays $24.69/hr plus vacation pay, with yearly pay increases and sweet benefits like medical/dental coverage.
The Outreach Coordinator will support the Anti-Violence Project by spreading the word about our wonderful services, resources and workshops throughout the UVic campus and our wider community. We’re looking for someone with experience planning and implementing communications plans (e.g. making social media content, creating posters, tabling at events, etc.) and working in/with sexualized assault centres or other social justice organizations. A full job description including duties and qualifications can be viewed here (PDF will open in a new window).
Working with the Anti-Violence Project means being part of a diverse and collaborative unionized work environment. Our team is currently working predominantly from home due to the COVID-19 pandemic but will be transitioning back into our office when it is safe to do so. If working remotely presents a barrier for you, please get in touch–we want to be able to support whoever gets this position in whatever ways they need.
This position is restricted to self-identified women, gender non-conforming, and non-binary applicants only. In support of employment equity and in order to increase our relevancy and diversity of skills, knowledge and experience, AVP strongly encourages self-identified people of colour, people with disabilities, Black, Indigenous, queer, and transgender people to apply. Preference will be given to qualified applicants who self-identify as being from marginalized communities and groups who face systemic barriers to employment. Applicants who wish to do so may self-identify in their cover letter.
In your application and resume, please provide specific details about your experience working with/in social justice organizations and/or sexual assault centres as well as your demonstrated experience with Facebook, Instagram, graphic design (e.g. Canva), and other related media.
The posting will be open until Thursday, April 8th, at 10am. All applications MUST be submitted to or dropped off at the General Office in the Student Union Building. If they are submitted by other means they cannot be accepted. Start date for this position is flexible! You can also view this job positing on the UVSS website, here.
