We are looking for a Digital Communications Coordinator who will work within the communications team and be responsible for a wide range of communications and engagement activities, including digital story-telling, social media and public engagement, internal communications and administrative organizational support.


You are a natural born storyteller and adept at using a variety of mediums to convey a message to diverse audiences.
