Network Coordinator: Canadian Network on Corporate Accountability
Location: Ottawa, Ontario
Application deadline: Thursday June 7, 2012
The Canadian Network on Corporate Accountability (CNCA) unites over 20 environmental, international development, faith-based, labour and social justice organizations around the shared objective of improving the accountability of Canadian corporations. Canadian civil society organizations created the CNCA in 2005 to provide a forum for information sharing and collaboration on activities related to the regulation of Canadian companies. The Network currently has a focus on mining, oil and gas companies that operate in developing countries.
The CNCA is hiring a part-time coordinator (4 days per week) who will report to the CNCA Steering Committee. The position will be based in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
The Coordinator is responsible for coordinating the activities of the CNCA, and helping the group elaborate strategies for policy development and promotion, and public awareness. Working under the direction of a Reference Group and in collaboration with the Steering Committee, the Coordinator will facilitate strategy development and assist in the implementation of network activities in collaboration with CNCA members.
She or he will be a self-starter, able to work efficiently and effectively with minimal supervision while ensuring coherence of all activities with the mandate and priorities of the CNCA.
The Coordinator will work closely with the Co-Chairs and Steering Committee of the CNCA. Specific priorities for the CNCA are defined annually in the work plan. Currently, the work of the CNCA is focused on the practical and policy implications of Canadian mining companies' operations in developing countries, informing and educating federal elected officials on the issues, and producing analysis and materials for use by members to raise awareness among the general public.
