Are you passionate about a career that helps Ontario students be healthy and active at school? If so, we want to hear from you! Ophea is interested in meeting with individuals who are open to learning and growing in a fast-paced, project-based organization.
Ophea (www.ophea.net) is a charity (based out of Toronto) that believes schools are an important place where students learn healthy habits that stay with them throughout their lives. Ophea works closely with educators working across Ontario’s 72 English and French school boards to support the health and well-being of every student. This includes offering programs and services across a variety of health topics including physical activity, concussions, healthy eating, mental health, and many more.
Who Are We Looking For?
As a provincial organization, Ophea values having a team that represents the diversity of the educators, children, and youth we support. We know that different facets of people’s identities – such as race, gender identity, ability, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation – can play a significant role in their lived experiences and we welcome and encourage all applicants to share with us who they are and what they can offer to help us realize a future where every Ontario student can value and enjoy the benefits of healthy active living.
What’s It Like to Work for Ophea?
Ophea promotes collaboration (working in small project teams) to execute our work. All staff work and learn across a variety of different areas of the organization (e.g., program development, marketing and communications, training, evaluation) to grow their professional skill sets and keep their jobs challenging and rewarding. Ophea’s work is grounded in proven project management principles.
Ophea believes a healthy staff is a productive staff and we offer a variety of benefits including dental and health benefits, competitive vacation (starting at three weeks with an additional week for Winter Break in December), flexible hours (e.g., start times between 7:30am and 10:00am), and shortened workdays before long weekends/on Fridays during summer months.
Given the circumstances with COVID-19, Ophea staff are currently working remotely to ensure the ongoing health and safety of all staff as opposed to in our Toronto office. Ophea’s revised work arrangement policy (beginning Fall 2022) will offer remote and hybrid work options for staff depending on different circumstances.
Note: Ophea is currently only considering applicants permanently living in Ontario.
