Reporting to the Senior Manager, Employment Engagement, we are adding an Alumni Placement Specialist to the team in Calgary. This is an opportunity to play a vital role in the success of our new Alumni Program and the experience of our returning program participants seeking the skills to reach the next level of their career. With an aim to assist with career enhancement through courses such as Associate Cloud Engineer and Automation with Python, this is an exciting and unique expansion. You will be accountable for forging new partnerships with employers in technology, growing our network of mentors, and coaching participants as you develop an understanding of their strengths and needs. Ultimately, you will take ownership of ensuring that 80% of program participants are successfully placed in a technology role directly related to their new skills or have gained admission to higher education within 6 months of course completion with us. I.T.. is what we do, transforming lives is what motivates us. If you want to help launch the tech careers of under-served, young adults, join us as the new Alumni Placement Specialist.

Education Required:

You have post-secondary education in human resources, business, human services, or a related area.

Skills Requirements:

  • You have 2 to 3 years in business development, sales, recruiting, or job development. Ideally, you have a network of contacts in technology - or you are ready to go out, knock on doors, pick up the phone, and make those connections. 

The compassion. 

  • You exhibit a high level of sensitivity, relatability, and emotional intelligence. 
  • You have an understanding of the socio-economic and mental health barriers faced by young adults of all backgrounds, and you have experience working with diverse community members, including new Canadians, people with disabilities, LGBTQ, low income, and racialized groups. 

The self-motivation. 

  • You are metrics-driven and have a proven history of successfully meeting your targets, using a CRM such as Salesforce to manage and track your data and reporting. 
  • You thrive in an autonomous role, successfully achieving your goals and doing what it takes to make a difference in the lives of our participants.  

The relationship-building. 

  • You are engaging, empathetic, and relatable. 
  • You can foster and nurture internal and external relationships with participants, colleagues, funders, community and employer partners, and other stakeholders. 
  • You have exceptional communication and issue resolution skills and can navigate sensitive situations with diplomacy and tact. 

The team spirit. 

  • You are willing to share, learn, and grow as part of a diverse, remote team. 

Other Requirements:

We have weekly scrums to prioritize objectives and address challenges; but, we also have bi-weekly trivia meetings where we talk about anything but work; it's a great way to come together.
