Who's hiring in Toronto? CivicAction, Fan Expo and more...

CivicAction is hiring an office manager and executive assistant to its CEO (to be clear, that’s one position). On the office manager side of things, duties involve maintaining the organization’s records and completing regular financial tasks like billing and invoicing. Other duties include providing support with HR-related tasks.

When it comes the executive assistant side of the coin, the most important duty involves managing the CEO’s calendar and deciding what appointments to schedule and prioritize. Civic action says it’s looking for someone with excellent project and time management. Strong written and oral skills are a must, too. The deadline to apply is this Friday, June 19. If you’re passionate about the city and have the skillset CivicAction is looking for, make sure to submit a resume.

Fan Expo, one of Canada’s largest conventions devoted to comics, gaming and anime, is hiring a graphic designer.

Beyond that, helping create a coherent visual aesthetic for the convention’s branding is a major part of the role. Five-plus years of experience in the design field is a must, as is fluency with programs such as Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign. No specific deadline to submit resumes for this one. Fan Expo, by the way, takes place this September 3rd to 6th at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
