WE'RE HIRING!



Administration and Stewardship Coordinator 


Key skills: Organized, fast learner, friendly on the phone, reasonably tech savvy, patient, passionate about social justice and progressive Jewish community. The ability to kibbitz (make bonding chit-chat) is highly valued in this front-facing role! 


If you believe you have these key skills, please apply even if your resume/work history does not "prove it," and explain your interest and abilities in your cover letter. There are many people who could do this role excellently who have not yet been given the opportunity to use their true skills to their full potential, because they are early in their careers, changing fields, or because of the barriers of marginalization. Mazon sees you and is excited to meet you!  


About MAZON Canada:  

 

MAZON Canada is a grassroots community foundation and burgeoning social movement that fights for food justice and feeds Canadians of all ages, ethnicities, faiths and abilities on behalf of the Jewish community. We do this by providing grants for food and equipment at aid food aid programs, and through mobilizing the Jewish community toward an end to hunger in Canada.   

 

Based on our values of tzedek (justice) and chesed (lovingkindness), we acknowledge that oppression and poverty are intimately connected to hunger, and that hunger cannot be solved without addressing social inequality.  

 

Our small, dynamic, hilarious staff (4-6 people) is committed to making the workplace we wish to see in the world: communicative, colourful, effective, enjoyable, mutually supportive, and nourished by expressing and respecting our needs and boundaries!


We are an equal-opportunity employer with a deep understanding of the barriers faced by marginalized people while job-hunting and in the workplace. We seek to make our office a safe, supportive space for our employees to bring their full selves and their needs to work. 

 

About You:  

 

A small staff means that a teamwork mindset and strong interpersonal communication will be valued highly, as well as the ability to work independently and with initiative.  

 

We are looking for candidates who are excited to grow in their role as Mazon grows. To this end, we're open to early-career candidates, or those with non-traditional experiences (community organizing, hobbies, etc). Soft skills like curiosity, creativity, and communication will be valued over experience with a specific software, etc. There will be lots of opportunities to see your efforts have a tangible effect on people in need, and the ideal applicant is excited about making that change through doing their job excellently.  

 

We are actively seeking applications from candidates belonging to demographics and communities most impacted by food insecurity (Black, Indigenous, disabled, trans, etc). We consider lived experience of hunger or poverty an asset.  

 

Knowledge of the Canadian Jewish community is preferred. As a Jewish organization, our ideal candidate would have familiarity with Jewish community and traditions regardless of whether they are themselves Jewish - or at the very least possess a strong desire to learn about Jewish culture, faith and identity with an open mind to cultural difference. A personal passion for progressive Jewish community spaces is a significant asset.

Office: 

 

Our office is the beautiful ground floor of a big old Annex house near Bloor and Bathurst, filled with cozy sofas, pretty lamps, interesting books, and a hilarious and supportive team. It has a large co-working space and smaller rooms for focused work or private meetings. While we offer hybrid and remote work, our staff generally prefers to come to the office for most of our work hours (that’s a brag - the vibes are great). 

 

Location: We're one block from Bathurst Station and has free parking for employees. Located by the Carrying Place, we’re on the shared and treatied traditional territory of many nations including the Anishnaabeg, the Ojibwe, the Haudenosaunee, the Wendat, and the Mississauguas of the New Credit, and are subject to the Dish with One Spoon Wampum Belt.

 

Accessibility: There are five steps to the front entrance, three steps to the back entrance, and the bathroom doors are unfortunately too narrow to accommodate a wheelchair. Both bathrooms are single-stall and non-gendered. We have a kitchen which is not currently kept to strict Kosher standards.

Applications are open on a rolling basis until the end of January, and candidates under consideration will be contacted within 2 weeks of submission about scheduling a phone screening.  We're hoping for a start date in Feb/March.
