Overall, Canadian education is a success story. But high overall quality masks deep inequality. On First Nations reserves, 3 in 5 students do not complete high school. Small communities often face challenges recruiting and retaining teachers. And, too often, new teachers arrive in northern and Indigenous communities without the preparation and support they need to succeed—and stay—in the classroom.
Teach For Canada has joined northern First Nations communities in the movement to make education more equal. We are a non-profit organization that recruits, prepares, and supports outstanding certified teachers.
We dream big. Teach For Canada believes that committed, passionate teachers with strong leadership characteristics can ignite positive change. Our small, tightly knit team works long but inspired hours. Our workplace culture is intense and collaborative. We value lived experience and new ideas.
If you prefer working alone, dislike ambiguity, and adhere to a very strict schedule, then Teach For Canada probably isn’t right for you. But if you’re looking for a fun, fast-paced, multi-faceted, energizing, and rewarding work environment that will push you every single day, then we want to hear from you.
The Teacher Recruitment and Selection Manager helps recruit and select outstanding teachers and connects them to classrooms in northern First Nations schools. Specific responsibilities include:
- Recruiting teacher applicants through campus career fairs, digital media, email campaigns, and presentations
- Planning and delivering recruitment webinars and professional development events
- Organizing the 4-stage teacher selection process including scheduling, logistics, panelist orientation, and data management
- Supporting teacher-community matching process, including inputting applicant profile data on Teach For Canada’s website and travelling to northern First Nations as needed
- Improving our process by analyzing quantitative and qualitative in-house data, literature review, teacher feedback and insights from our community partners
- Performing other recruitment, selection, and matching processes as needed
- You are a perfectionist. You believe that if something is worth doing, it is worth doing right—every single time. You self-reflect to continually improve.
- You are a jack-of-all tech. You are highly proficient with Microsoft Office, photo editing software, CRM, and database management. You learn other tech quickly.
- You communicate clearly. You write well and speak eloquently. You appreciate nuanced language that is inspirational and honest.
- You see the bigger picture. You have a deep respect for the history, culture, and goals of Indigenous communities in Canada. You care that goals are reached in the right way.
- You are a team player. You recognize the strengths of others, collaborate well, and crave feedback.
