35 hours/week , $10.50/hr, for 8 weeks.

Information and Records Assistant

We’ve procured and generated a lot of information while developing 300km of hiking trail! You can help us streamline, store and make greater use of our information resources by organizing them, bringing them into consistent digital formats and making them accessible to staff and volunteers online. In this full-time summer project role, you’ll collaborate with ECTA’s staff and volunteer IT committee to:
-help us to evaluate our current state of records and information
-help identify how and what information can be used by unique committee areas
-create a file naming system

You should be comfortable with MS Office and Google apps like Gmail and Sites, as well as standard office equipment – printers, copiers, scanners.

You are intuitive, great at collaborating, project-oriented, and very comfortable working independently.

35 hours/week, $10.50/hour, for 8 weeks.
