Jobs & Opportunities @ CSI
Curious about the Centre for Social Innovation? Join us for an upcoming Information Session!
Program & Events Manager
We've turned on our "Bat Signal" to call out for a new programs and events superhero. And like any other superhero, this position comes with great responsibility... and opportunity.
We are the Centre for Social Innovation, a coworking space, community and launchpad for people who are changing the world. We are a hub of learning and collaboration for a dynamic community of social entrepreneurs and nonprofit organizations. Since opening our doors in May 2013, we have hosted tens of thousands of people through a vibrant mix of programs, meetings, workshops, panels and socials. Now we’re ready to take our work to the next level.
As CSI’s Programs and Events Manager, you’ll have the opportunity to program and manage one of the most interesting and versatile meeting and events venues in the city. We’re looking for someone who doesn’t see events as just a set of details on a checklist -- they see them as experiences that can connect ideas/people, change perspectives, influence thinking, create amazing opportunities for people to learn, grow and ultimately create positive changes in the world.
Volunteer Community Animator
Wanna join us behind the scenes? Community Animators excel in customer service, organization, communications, and problem solving. They’re connectors of ideas and people. They’re our frontline baristas for social change!
CSI's Desk Exchange Community Animator (DECA) program trades time for space. You give us one day a week of volunteer front desk support, and we give you unlimited access to CSI Hot Desk space plus access to our dynamic community and programming. But, we won't accept just anyone! We're looking for those of you that are super-organized, comfortable with technology, love people and can't get enough of the CSI community!
This opportunity makes sense for individuals who see a clear value exchange of volunteer work for access to CSI space. The one day a week will be for CSI related tasks (not your own work - sorry!). Yes, this is volunteer work but we expect professionalism and commitment.
The work involves front desk reception, helping tenants and guests, IT support, cleaning and managing the space and everything else needed to keep the space and its members humming. This position requires a six month commitment.
Keep in mind: We're looking for a long-term relationship here, not a fling! Finding replacements for some days is okay, missing more than two days in two months is not. (Yes, special circumstances like travel can be accommodated with enough advance notice).
