Who's hiring in Toronto? National Ballet of Canada, Ladies Learning Code and more...

Some of the more interesting employment opportunities we've spotted this week include:

The National Ballet of Canada is seeking a footwear coordinator. This is a one year contract position that will see the person that takes it on become responsible for ensuring that the Ballet's dancers are provided and fitted with appropriate performance footwear—minus Pointe shoes, because they're so important to a ballet troupe there's probably one person responsible just for them. Other responsibilities include painting and styling the company's footwear for each specific production, as well as maintaining a footwear record. In other words, this sounds like just about the coolest job ever. The deadline to apply is January 23.

If you watched even a bit of Canadian television during the 90s, then you're likely intimately familiar with the Canadian Heritage Minute. Whether it was the one about burnt toast or the one about a scrapped supersonic jet, these one-minute infomercials were, almost without exception, well-made, informative and compelling. Now there's a chance to work for the organization that was responsible for their creation. Historica Canada is hiring a Heritage Minutes officer. This is a general administrative position that includes duties like note taking, responding to inquires from the public and conducting research. The deadline to apply is January 21.

The Sick Kids Foundation is hiring for two associate level positions. They're looking for a development writer to help writer and edit the material that gets sent out to their donors, as well as a third party events associate to help with the planning and execution of their calendar of events. The deadline to apply for both positions is January 19.

Finally, while it's not a paid position, we would be remiss not to mention that Ladies Learning Code is looking for a volunteer lead instructor. For those that haven't heard of the LLC, it's a Toronto born organization that puts together digital literacy and coding workshops for women and youth. No previous teaching experience is required to apply for this position, so those with relevant skills and a desire to give back and impart their knowledge should check out the group's website.
