About South House:
South House, formerly the Dalhousie Women’s Centre, is a student-funded, volunteer-driven resource centre that seeks to address and advocate for anti-oppression issues within a feminist framework. Originally founded in recognition of women’s common and diverse needs, South House recognizes that you cannot work for a society free of sexism and patriarchy without also working for a society free of all forms of oppression. South House supports women and all people dealing with oppression on the basis of sexuality and gender. South House believes in working together for the creation of a society that is vibrant, life-sustaining, and safe for people of all genders.
The Administrative and Volunteer Coordinator works in collaboration with the full-time Outreach Coordinator, as well as the South House Board of Directors and volunteers, to fulfill the mandate of South House and to maintain daily Centre operations.
The ideal applicant should have strong administrative skills, experience coordinating volunteers and writing grant applications, and an interest in policy development and reproductive justice.
Shared Responsibilities with Outreach Coordinator:
Hours of work: Monday to Friday, 40 hours per week, approximately 30 of which should be spent in the South House (dependent on the tasks at hand). Please note that the position is levy-funded and that full-time hours are guaranteed through March 31, 2015 and are contingent upon renewal of the student levy following that time.
Rate of pay: $20/hour (before taxes), on a salaried monthly payment schedule.
