ROLE: Training Facilitator
This role is a unique blend of both in-house job ready workshop facilitation and outreach with a focus on connecting with isolated newcomers and immigrants within the community they live.
Facilitating job readiness workshops in an art and requires creative approaches to learning. Many of our clients find the idea of resume, job search, interview skill, etc. workshops redundant. Your role is to present up-to-date and relevant information in a creative, innovative and energetic manner that is one step ahead of the typical job readiness workshops.
We are looking for an energetic, passionate, and imaginative facilitator who thinks outside of the typical approaches to facilating employment readiness topics and ignites a passion for job search within our newcomers and immigrants.
