I'm seeking a Councillor's assistant working at the grassroots level with resident and City stakeholders on a variety of municipal issues including transportation and the environment. The ideal candidate:

- is relentlessly customer-service-driven, with a successful background in retail

- has 2-3 years of work experience in a post-university role
- has 2-3 years of volunteer team experience in a hands-on capacity
- demonstrates analytical and problem-solving experience
- has excellent communications skills and a high degree of empathy

The Councillor's assistant works in a team to solve day-to-day constituent issues and to move the policy agenda forward. The workplace is dynamic, fun and fast-paced. Individual success is measured by team success. The position is full-time at City Hall, with some evening and weekend work required.

For the right candidate, this is an opportunity to kickstart her or his career working in a respectful workplace with daily opportunity for meaningful service and professional and personal growth. Team Kitchissippi is non-partisan.
