Position: Communications Coordinator

Location: Anywhere in BC
Eligibility: age 30 & under; unemployed, under-employed or student/recent grad (see below)
FarmFolk CityFolk (FFCF) is a not-for-profit society connecting, empowering, and inspiring people to strengthen BC’s sustainable food systems. We develop, operate, and act as a catalyst for projects that support access to and production of local, sustainable food; support local growers and producers; provide access to and protection of farmland; and connect, educate, and celebrate with communities across BC. For over 25 years FFCF has been a leader in local food and sustainable agriculture working with business, policy makers, NGO partners, government, universities, and the public to achieve our mandate.
We are seeking a communications, design, marketing, and social media whiz to join our team. Reporting to the Engagement Manager, the Communications Coordinator will support the whole team on a wide range of communications projects, and help to compellingly articulate our impact. While our specific initiatives continually evolve in response to emerging priorities, we are currently very active on engaging eaters, farmers, and policy makers on climate solutions through their food choices and food production systems. This includes shooting and editing videos, doing interviews, designing fact sheets and graphics, and rolling content out across platforms. We are also very focussed on seed security, engaging farmers and the public to develop a thriving ecological seed sector in BC. This is a particularly exciting time to join our team as we are embarking on a brand refresh and complete website overhaul and the successful candidate will have the opportunity to work with the development team to roll this out. The ideal candidate is creative, energetic, and exceptionally detail-oriented to literally make sure all of the i’s are dotted and the t’s are crossed.
Application deadline: the role will be filled as soon as a suitable candidate is identified. Quick applications are encouraged.
Start date: November 30
This will start as a temporary employment role until March 31, 2021, with a very strong possibility of extension. It is 37.5 hours per week at $21.98/ hour + 4% in lieu of paid vacation time. Flexible schedule possible.
This is a work from home position, and the successful candidate will need a reliable, fast internet connection and personal computer (if this is a barrier, please let us know). $50/ month allowance provided. All necessary software will be provided.
This role is funded by ECO Canada’s Digital Skills for Youth program and the successful candidate must be a Canadian citizen, permanent resident or refugee in Canada, as well as being unemployed, underemployed, or have part-time employment.
