Volunteers

ROLE

Are you an early-career communications and marketing generalist looking for a way to build your resume, expand your network and engage in a meaningful volunteer opportunity? 

Endeavour is looking for two Coordinators to support our small but mighty volunteer team to fulfill our team’s mission of building Endeavour’s reputation as a thought leader in pro bono management consulting and supporting the health and resilience of the not for profit sector. 

This is a great opportunity to make positive and measurable progress towards increasing Endeavour’s brand awareness and in turn, the impact of its work in the community.

 

RESPONSIBILITIES

Reporting to Endeavour’s VP of Marketing and Communications, the Coordinator(s) will be responsible for supporting the development and execution of Endeavour’s wide-ranging communications initiatives.  

 

Specific Responsibilities:

  • Support the development of written copy and graphic content for a wide range of communications products including newsletters, blog posts and social media posts 
  • Post original and curated social media content using software such as Hootsuite
  • Build and issue emails using software such as Mailchimp  
  • Collaborate with other teams on the Endeavour Executive on cross-departmental initiatives
  • Generate ideas and support the development of initiatives and activities to commemorate Endeavour’s 15-year anniversary in 2022
  • Write client and volunteer impact stories and profiles 
  • Participate in mostly virtual Marketing and Communications team meetings including editorial planning, strategy development, and status updates
  • Define, track and report on key metrics for Endeavour’s communications activities and recommend strategies for continuous improvement

Our expectation is not that a single candidate would be able to fulfill every one of these responsibilities. We will also offer learning opportunities depending on the candidate’s goals. We encourage you to apply even if you don’t have all of the experience listed above.
