We are hiring for an exciting new position to support the work of the St. John’s Status of Women Council.
The role is to provide support around organizational advocacy, fund development, as well as ongoing analysis, information and solution-based recommendations for gender-equitable policy and practice in St. John’s and across Newfoundland and Labrador. Using a feminist, intersectional, harm-reductive, equity-focused and evidence-based approach, this position would produce analysis of up-to-date research and alternatives around current policy, informed by the ways in which poverty, racism, criminalization and social injustices intersect with gender inequity.
This position will actively increase and expand on the integration of evidence-based, culturally relevant, gender inclusive analysis into community engagement, action, advocacy and fund development through the SJSOWC. All work produced by the Advocacy Coordinator will be informed by the front-line service and programs of Marguerite’s Place, the St. John’s Women’s Centre, and the Safe Harbour Outreach Project, through active engagement and meaningful consultation with program staff and participants.
The workload of the Advocacy Coordinator will include production of relevant documents to support lobbying and fundraising efforts by the SJSOWC. This includes research and policy analysis as well as grant seeking and proposal writing. In terms of organizational public relations and media work, the Advocacy Coordinator will directly support the work of the Executive Director in developing resources for briefings, statements, and advocacy positions, as well as management of the SJSOWC social media accounts.
If you’re a feminist with a passion for advocacy, apply by 4pm on Tuesday, Aug. 25 by e-mailing your resume and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org.
