Job Posting: New Media Writer

Tuesday, July 28, 2020 1:25 PM | Kristy Rhyason (Administrator)

The New Media Writer is a temporary part-time position funded through the Canada Summer Jobs program.

This position will generate public content and programs for use on shared website and social media platforms that will serve to inform and educate the public in techniques and resources to effectively manage conflict in their personal and professional lives.

The desired outcomes include improved access to justice, earlier resolutions, restored relationships, better child custody and elder care provisions, greater awareness of restorative and indigenous practices, improved business practices, and collaborative labour/management relationships.

In short, the position will provide the public the resources to manage conflict on their own, or to access facilitated resolution processes that are less reliant on the courts and costly litigation. 

ADR professionals and staff will work with the candidate in developing both the digital and communication skills necessary for generating appropriate print, web, and social media content. The candidate will have the opportunity to establish a network of contacts and learn from a number of professionals within the ADR field. 

To be eligible, the candidate must:

  • be 30 years of age or younger
  • be a Canadian citizen, permanent resident, or person to whom refugee protection has been conferred under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act for the duration of the employment; and,
  • have a valid Social Insurance Number at the start of employment and be legally entitled to work in Canada in accordance with relevant provincial or territorial legislation and regulations

Deadline to apply: August 7th.
