Interested in making a difference in your own community? We are Helping With Furniture (HWF www.hwfottawa.org), Ottawa’s award-winning provider of gently-used furniture to people in need. We help divert tonnes of furniture from the landfill each year by repurposing it for people experiencing hardship or displacement, who need the contents of a home. As a 100% volunteer-run organization, we are the very definition of grassroots.

We are recruiting a volunteer Fundraising Team Lead to help us continue our growth journey into our next strategic plan. The role requires 10 to 20 hours a month of commitment; some months, there is less, whereas other months involve complex proposal development. A small volunteer fundraising team exists now, and you will have the opportunity to recruit and expand this group, thereby diversifying the reach and results of your fundraising work. The Fundraising Team Lead can take on as much as they choose to, while also empowering others to play a leading role in fundraising operations.

The Fundraising Team Lead will take over from our current (volunteer) Director of Fundraising, who will redirect their focus from running day-to-day fundraising activities to continuing their role on our board of directors. A strong transition/handover will be planned for you to take over the role and make it your own, so that you can take it to new heights. You will have continued access to knowledge and historical context on our fundraising to-date, with advice and guidance always a phone call/email away - but only if you need it. You’ll have plenty of room to take ownership and take new directions.

ENW is a multi-year research project that seeks to empower and support newcomer visible minority women to accelerate their integration into the labour market through a variety of developmental workshops, job matching opportunities, and personal support. (Here’s a 3-minute video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IIPT8U0yND4 .)

The volunteering opportunities in this project include:
• Participating in Coaching Events,
• Facilitating workshops such as Career Planning, Portfolio Building, resume writing and Personal Branding,
• Being an expert at small group round table events on specific topics,
• Leading Self-Leadership seminars to motivate and inspire our clients and teach them self-care, and
• Being a personal Champion.

For the workshops, seminars and round tables, we are seeking individuals with subject matter expertise and facilitation skills.

Championship addresses the greatest barrier facing newcomer job-seekers, especially women – the lack of professional networks – by matching clients with established women “champions” to support them in clarifying and reaching their career goals. Being a Champion is similar to, but less rigorous than being a mentor. Essentially, it means “being there” for her. It can be as simple as listening and as complex as preparing her for a job interview. The match is for about 90 days and the nature of the relationship its mutually determined.

The context of championing is outlined here : https://ottawa-worldskills.org/become-an-employer-champion/

Description of Position
Shelter Movers Ottawa provides free moving and storage services to those fleeing abuse in and around Ottawa. We are the only organization of our kind in Canada, and our volunteers are no less exceptional. Every year, in collaboration with community partners, our volunteer teams contribute over 15,000 hours to support people transitioning to lives free of violence and abuse.

We are looking for people who have a keen eye on organization and are good problem solvers. As well as a deep passion and commitment for helping women and survivors of abuse. A Move Coordinator is an integral part of the move team, providing coordination of the move beforehand and on-call support on the day of a move. The Move Coordinator ensures all moves go smoothly, that volunteer movers and drivers are recruited, and tackles any unforeseen challenges.

Responsibilities
This role requires hard working professionals with strong communication skills (by email and phone), and an ability to serve clients with patience and empathy while looking for solutions and managing expectations. An ability to remain calm in stressful situations, awareness of compassion fatigue and self-care, and maintaining communication with your team, are essential skills for the Move Coordinator.

As a Move Coordinator, you will be the puppeteer behind a move – the person who puts it together and makes it happen.

Time Commitment
Moves happen all over the city, at various times in the day, throughout the week.

Since Move Coordinators work through email and phone, this is a work-from-home position, with occasional meetings (in-person and/or conference calls.) A 3 to 6 month commitment is strongly preferred.

Requirements
Collect move-related information from clients and referring agencies
Assemble volunteer move teams using a database and e-mail
Coordinate the date/time and other logistics of a move and ensure all clients and volunteers are available
Provide information to volunteers while protecting client confidentiality
Reserve move vehicles and ensure drivers have necessary information to pick up vehicles
Being available during a move to support the move team in the event of unexpected challenges (ie. extending vehicle reservations)
Electronically file client and volunteer waivers
Report back to Move Coordination Manager after each move
Use patience, empathy, and active listening skills in serving people under stress
Being aware of compassion fatigue, self-care, and working safely
Have regular check-ins with Shelter Movers staff

Shelter Movers volunteers must be at least 18 years of age, complete an interview process, attend an orientation for new volunteers, in addition to signing a confidentiality agreement and obtaining a criminal record check.

How to Apply:

Please contact our Volunteer Services Team at volunteerottawa@sheltermovers.com to express your interest in this role, and include ""Move Coordinator"" in the subject heading. Please attach your resume as well.
