Click here for a more detailed job description.

The Director of Special Projects splits their time between serving as Executive Director of the CTF’s Generation Screwed (GS) initiative (75%) and completing various special projects and tasks as assigned.

Generation Screwed is the CTF’s campus outreach initiative. The Director of Special Projects is the sole CTF employee that works on Generation Screwed. The director is expected to work on all aspects of operating GS, including recruitment, training, creation of promotional materials, acting as spokesperson, organizing events and assisting the on-campus efforts by local coordinators.

The director may work out of the CTF’s Ottawa office, Regina office or from a home-based or donated office space anywhere in Canada. Expectations are that the director will be available at all times. The director is expected to attend meetings, provide materials and meet deadlines as assigned. 

The director should have experience in politics or public policy work, with a related university degree. Experience with media, public speaking, writing, graphic design and campaign organization is an asset. Proficiency in French is not required, but is also a strong asset.

The director must be a flexible and creative individual, prepared to work long and sometimes unusual hours. The director is expected to take initiative in a dynamic and often unpredictable work environment. Above all, the director must be enthusiastic and committed to the mission of the CTF.

Compensation will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.
