Innovation Works is a community committed to employment equity and sharing values of diversity and inclusion. We firmly believe that diversity animates new discoveries and welcome applications from women, visible minorities, Aboriginal peoples, persons with disabilities, and persons of any sexual orientation or gender identity.
Run the welcome desk. Welcome every visitor to Innovation Works with enthusiasm and an open mind. Handle phone and in-person inquiries, manage and book meeting rooms, and keep an eye on office supplies to make sure we’re prepared for anything!
Be a Gracious Host. A good host can make anyone feel welcome. At Innovation Works, you’ll take visitors on mini-tours of the space, prep meeting rooms, help organize and participate in community events, and keep us in check to make sure all our services are offered as inclusively as possible.
Share your ideas. Suggest new work practices and processes to improve Innovation Works’ flow and keep us on mission. Help us to be as effective as we can be!
Make it Sparkle! In order to make sure everyone’s experience at Innovation Works is awesome, we need your help to keep a clean and organized space. Don’t be afraid to get your hands dirty!
Choose your own adventure. Each of our Desk Exchange Animators has a diverse set of skills, and we want to celebrate that with you! What else can you do to support our operations and community?
If the above list sounds like something you can handle, and you can do it all with sincerity, care, fun, and goodwill, then we want you! Remember, this is a 6-month commitment.
