We are hiring! We’re looking for a Project Manager for our Makers Making Change (new window) initiative, someone who will work hard to continue the rapid growth and development of the initiative, particularly across Canada.

The Project Manager will coordinate the matching of volunteers to projects locally, and will also support in hosting build events leading to sustainable networks and chapters. Based out of our head office in Burnaby, BC, they will work closely with all of our Neil Squire Society offices across Canada, many of whom will be adding staff to support Makers Making Change.

It’s truly an exciting time for us. The Project Manager will be particularly important as we move towards the next phase of Makers Making Change. While we will continue to refine the LipSync and host Buildathons, our goal is bigger than just one solution. We are currently working on creating a network that will connect people with disabilities with makers and individualized solutions. The Project Manager will be pivotal to the success of this next step.
