Eating Disorders Nova Scotia is a rapidly growing, community-based organization. We believe that noone should have to face an eating disorder alone. Last year, we supported over a thousand people along their recovery journey.
All of our supports – including one-on-one Peer Mentoring, Peer Support Groups, Peer Support Chat, Workshops, Family Support and Nutrition Counselling– are delivered virtually. A referral or a diagnosis are not required to start one’s healing journey. We know that recovery from an eating disorder is tough – accessing support and treatment shouldn’t be.
Communications and outreach to our target group is essential. Less than 10% of those with eating disorders receive treatment, and we’re setting out to change that. We know that with support and treatment, a full recovery is possible.
We are seeking an individual with a passion for marketing and communications to join our team over the summer. As this is a Canada Summer Jobs position, applicants must be under 30 at the start of employment.
This is a virtual position; the successful applicant will work from home, with regular virtual team meetings. We offer a flexible work week, opportunities for training and development, and built-in time for self-care and work life balance.
Eating Disorders Nova Scotia recognizes the overrepresentation of white/non-racialized voices within our organization. Therefore, we prioritize the contributions, perspectives, and lived experiences that individuals from Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour communities bring to our organization’s work. We welcome and encourage applicants to self-identify in their cover letter.
We also encourage those who had had direct experience with an eating disorder to apply and self-identify in their cover letter.
Send your resume, portfolio, and a cover letter detailing why you want to work with us, and what awesome skills and experiences you bring to Shaleen Jones, Executive Director. Deadline for applications: Midnight, May 25, 2021
