Engagement Officers

Position: Engagement Officer
Organization: Thinkwell Shift
Location: Halifax, Nova Scotia

Thinkwell Shift (“Shift”) is a behavior change company that specializes in resource conservation. We create strategies that encourage people to make lasting changes in their daily lives to conserve resources such as water, energy, and waste. Shift is looking for like-minded individuals who can work exceptionally well independently and remotely, but who also enjoy being part of a small, dedicated team. Shift is looking for public engagement orientated individuals who enjoy working with youth.

• Participate in the development and deployment of recruitment strategies for the 2016-2017 program.
• Promote energy efficiency and a culture of conservation throughout the province.
• Work to actively recruit new schools, and re-register schools that participated in the program in the previous school year.
• Research, development and creation of resources.
• Introduce program goals, logistics, and resources to new and returning schools.
• Provide on-the-ground advice, support, and mentorship to participating schools throughout the school year.
• Forge, maintain, and strengthen relationships with the school community (students, teachers, administrators, parents), partners, and other stakeholders.
• Help implement pilot projects, new resources, and baseline and end-of-year surveys and other evaluation methods.
• Participate in meetings with the program team in Halifax as required.
• Write small stories for website and social media.
• Contribute to the development of web, social media, and printed content for the program.

School Engagement Officers will be assigned and responsible for a specific region in the province, ideally corresponding to the region in which they live. Please indicate in your cover letter which region you would be most interested in working: HRM/Eastern Shore/Central Nova Scotia; Northern Nova Scotia; Conseil scolaire acadien provincial (CSAP), which is province-wide. We will do our utmost to accommodate these preferences if possible; however, successful candidates must demonstrate a willingness to travel throughout the province as required.

• Degree in Education, Environmental Management/Studies, or related field (or equivalent combination of education and experience).
• Experience working with children and youth (elementary, junior, and/or senior high school students) in a school setting and/or programming capacity.
• Strong time management, planning, and interpersonal skills.
• Personal commitment to leading a sustainable lifestyle desired; expertise in environmental studies would be an asset.
• Valid Nova Scotia Driver's License, access to a safe and reliable vehicle, and ability to travel throughout the province as required.
• Experience delivering youth programs with an environmental focus would be considered an asset.
• Knowledge of the Nova Scotia school system and/or curriculum outcomes and lesson plan development would be considered an asset.
• Bilingualism (English/French) is mandatory for applicants interested in the CSAP position; it is considered an asset for the other two Engagement Officer positions.
• A criminal record check, including a vulnerable sector check, will be required before beginning work in schools.
