Looks like 2010 is going to be a great year for those looking to align their politics with their work. These two job announcements -- one in Ottawa and one in Toronto -- came across my desk on Friday:
Oxfam Canada is an international development agency with a focus on women's rights and gender equality, committed to building lasting solutions to global poverty and injustice by advocating for fundamental social change. In 2010, Oxfam Canada will be working with Canadians and citizens around the world to bring their voices to the G8 and G20 Summits to be held in Canada. Reporting to the Team Leader, Communications the E-Communications Officer will be charged with expanding our outreach capacity through digital media. The E-Communications Officer will advise on new and useful media tools to reach new and diverse audiences as part of the development of an overall e-communications plan to increase our outreach potential.
An exciting new position at Greenpeace Canada, the New Media Fundraiser plays a key role within a team of experienced, committed and enthusiastic fundraisers. You'll help Greenpeace engage and inspire a wide audience of people to support the organization and our campaigns for a green and peaceful future. We're looking for a web-savvy, skilled and experienced person who can deliver great digital campaigns, and help us build this new area of fundraising for Greenpeace Canada.
I've been lucky enough to collaborate with both of these organizations over the years and can't say enough good things about the work that they are doing. If you've been looking for a chance to align your work and your passions, you better dust off that CV.
