We are hiring!

Work with me.
In my department.
Along with a range of super awesome responsibilities, you'd be helping me with my filing :) (I so suck at filing.)

So fun.

Job description:

Do Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest mean more than relationship statuses, #TBThursdays and chalk paint to you? Are you passionate about social marketing, well-crafted communication and appropriately placed punctuation? Then this position is right up your alley! If you’re an organized Jack (or Jane) of all trades when it comes to the world of creative services, here’s your opportunity to use your skills to help families.

Consistently named one of the 10 Best Christian Places to Work in Canada, Focus on the Family Canada is a forward-thinking and dynamic place to boost your writing and social marketing career. Our vibrant creative team is proud of the work we feel called to do, and we are looking for an energetic and detail-oriented editorial assistant who is passionate about social media and communications, and who loves to inspire people with words and images.

This is your opportunity to use your creative and editorial talents at an organization you can believe in.

Your responsibilities will include:
  • Managing Focus on the Family Canada’s social media accounts, including Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. This involves strategizing for high engagement, regular content creation and curation, brainstorming and running seasonal or promotional campaigns and more. Success in social media will require a broad knowledge of all ongoing ministry initiatives.
  • Working with the editorial team as needed with print or online communications, always ensuring quality and timeliness in all facets of the organization’s publications, including messaging, length, orthodoxy, style standards, hyperlinks, consistency, etc.
  • Handling administrative tasks, such as filing vendor quotes, matching invoices to orders and filing in appropriate dockets, and maintaining a sample library of print projects.
  • Additional communications-related administrative tasks as needed, such as screening incoming product reviews on Focus on the Family Canada’s online bookstore.

As the ideal candidate, you have a four-year university degree in English, Journalism, Communications or New Media. Experience as a print or online editor, and/or a background in social media, would be considered a strong asset. Strong computer skills in MS Office programs is crucial. A keen eye for what works visually for design campaigns is a perk. You demonstrate excellent written communication skills, a strong grasp of grammar and familiarity using writing style guides – familiarity with the CP Stylebook is a plus.

Success in this position is dependent upon a drive for excellence in detailed tasks, along with an exceptional ability to coordinate numerous tasks with a respect for timelines and deadlines. You must be a flexible team player with the ability to take direction, be a self-starter and work independently. Your strong organizational skills mean you are comfortable taking initiative and coordinating project details in a fast-moving and rapidly changing environment. Above all, you must be a consistent witness for Jesus Christ, and maintain a courteous, Christ-like attitude in dealing with people and adhere to the Christian Foundations and Standards.
