Be Passionate.

  • You are energetic, professional, and thoughtful, with strong interpersonal skills, often described as a ‘people person.’
  • You have a track record of being a strong communicator who can deliver dynamic presentations (both in-person and virtually) to large groups or meet with someone on an individual level.
  • You believe in the value of post-secondary education, and you love the idea of being able to provide information on college admissions, programs, and student life.

Take Initiative.

  • You are a natural networker who is approachable, professional, and personable.
  • You love getting to know others and helping them to achieve their goals.
  • You know how to make a plan and stick to it but can adapt on the fly when the situation requires it.
  • You are extremely organized and self-driven, coordinating events, campus tours and travel plans.
  • ‘Life on the road’ is an exciting prospect for you, as you will spend time in communities both inside and outside the province, including northern and remote communities.
  • There is considerable travel throughout the year, so you must hold a valid Class 5 drivers’ license and be comfortable with evening and weekend schedules and overnight trips.
  • You are also keen to learn and use technology in all facets of your job, particularly Microsoft Office (PowerPoint, Word, Excel, Access).

Deliver Results.

  • As part of the college’s student recruitment & conversion team, you will help generate new recruitment opportunities to connect with prospective students of all ages and backgrounds, with a focus on Indigenous student recruitment.
