Provide a role model and friend for children;
Promote the importance of staying in school and healthy relationships with family and peers;

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.

Déclaration d'embauche de Covid-19
Transit Secours continue de fonctionner et de fournir ses services uniques de déménagement et d'entreposage, malgré la pandémie de COVID-19. Nous avons mis en place des mesures de sécurité strictes pour protéger nos bénévoles, notre personnel, nos partenaires et nos client·e·s. Alors que nous faisons tous notre part pour ralentir la propagation du COVID-19 et rester à la maison, nous devons nous rappeler que la maison n'est pas un endroit sécuritaire pour un nombre important de personnes. Les personnes en situation de violence peuvent être amenées à passer plus de temps en isolement avec leur agresseur·e. La perte d'emploi et l'insécurité financière sont également devenues plus fréquentes au cours de la pandémie, entraînant statistiquement une augmentation de la violence basée sur le genre. Depuis le début de la pandémie, Transit Secours a connu une augmentation de 30 % de la demande de ses services.
