The National Trust is looking for Students and Young Professionals with communications, social media or fundraising experience and an interest in heritage to help project groups crowdfund in the 2017 THIS PLACE MATTERS competition. Working with community groups will add valuable volunteer and work experience.

Must haves:

  • Have great communications skills, and are currently studying Communications at a recognized University or College
  • Strong work ethic

Nice to haves:

  • Knowledge or experience with crowdfunding OR fundraising
  • Bilingual
  • An interest in Canada’s history and heritage

Other information you need to know:

  • We expect that this would be a time commitment of 6 to ten hours of your time beginning in mid-May and would last until mid-July. The bulk of those hours would take place at the beginning of June.
  • Although we’ve mentioned that experience in crowdfunding would be an asset, we will provide training on crowdfunding tips, tricks and tools to share with the project teams.
  • At the end of the competition we will send an official letter recognizing the volunteer work
