Career Opportunity

Community Investment Coordinator

Francis Winspear Centre for Music | Edmonton Symphony Orchestra


Do you thrive on cultivating relationships by discovering common ground?

Does being part of an active culture scene energize and inspire you?

Would you like to work with a cornerstone arts organization in the heart of Edmonton?


The Francis Winspear Centre for Music is recognized as one of North America’s finest acoustic concert facilities and is home to the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra, an ensemble with adventurous programming that reflects the diversity of the communities it serves. The Winspear’s vision is to make music central to tourism, business, and cultural development initiatives in the city by building partnerships with community organizations to maximize the use of the venue as a community resource and minimize barriers for people to access musical arts experiences.


The Community Investment Coordinator nurtures relationships with our partners in industry, the arts, and the social sectors. This position involves stewarding existing partnerships, identifying strategic opportunities, preparing partnership proposals, sponsorship activation, and supporting the department in meeting budget targets. In this role, you are actively involved in community events and engage in ongoing communication with existing and prospective sponsors and partners. Additionally, you are accountable for coordinating internal and external events for community partners in conjunction with other departments, creating processes to track deliverables for partners, and finding creative ways to inspire and maintain partner engagement.


You will thrive in this role if you love meeting new people and attending events and you are passionate about the value arts bring to the community as a whole. You are energized by being at events greeting sponsors, community partners, artists and media contacts. Through your professional and personal inclinations, you reveal your connectedness to the community. A love of music and your appreciation of the value arts and culture bring to the community as a whole are essential to success in this role. As an ambassador for the arts in Edmonton, you possess the ability to nurture positive relationships with all organizational stakeholders including guests, patrons, donors, community groups, media, volunteers, and internally with all levels of personnel in the organization.


Your qualifications include a post-secondary degree and/or related experience with community relations, sponsorships, project management, marketing, and sales. This role is ideal for someone who pursues goals with vigour, works independently but is strongly inclined to be communicative and team-oriented, and interacts respectfully and confidently with others. You are a strong communicator, in person and in writing, who is conscientious, organized, and diligent with details. Understanding of event coordination and social sector not-for-profits is beneficial.


If you enjoy the challenge of surpassing your own targets and building mutually beneficial relationships that contribute to a better community for everyone, submit your application to begin your career with one of Edmonton’s finest arts organizations. What you get is a full-time position with opportunities to flex your creativity and develop professionally. This is a flexible working environment and evening and weekend work is required.
