Visits are typically 20 minutes to 1 hour on a weekly basis, and, if virtual, are on a variety of platforms such as the phone or Zoom, depending on the client’s preference and capabilities.

Description of Position
Shelter Movers provides free moving and storage services to those fleeing abuse. 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.
For these positions we are exclusively looking for bilingual candidates. (French and English)

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.

Role Requirements
- Bilingual (French and English)
- 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.

In this role you will be helping support our sister chapter Shelter Movers Montreal.
