As a federally registered not-for-profit organization, GLOCAL is growing our pan-Canadian team across six time zones!
We now have several job openings to work remotely on our digital civic engagement platform, YouCount.ca! Currently vacant are a number of contract positions at GLOCAL, including those for research assistants, social media assistants, data analysts, community outreach officers, web development assistants, and UI/UX designers. These positions may be funded by Innovate BC through their Digital Skills For Youth program and through the Canada Summer Jobs program.
Our fully-virtual workspace strives to accommodate those who have mobility challenges, health concerns, or require flexibility in their hours. It also provides a unique opportunity to work with peers from other parts of the country on a not-for-profit, non-partisan basis.
To apply, send a cover letter and resume with two reference contacts in a single PDF file to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, with the successful applicant commencing their work period as soon as possible.
