Position: Project and Operations Coordinator
Organization: Toronto Environmental Alliance
Location: downtown Toronto, Ontario
The Toronto Environmental Alliance is hiring a Project and Operations Coordinator.
Who We Are:
TEA was founded in 1988. Our mandate is to promote a greener Toronto for all. We work with concerned individuals and grassroots organizations, professionals and workers, as well as elected officials, encouraging the participation of local people on local issues. TEA envisions Toronto as a green, healthy and equitable city with economic activity that sustains our environment.
TEA is recognized locally and nationally for our municipal work on climate change, waste reduction, toxics reduction, transit, Greenbelt protection, energy efficiency and green power -- issues we believe are critical to the health and well-being of Toronto residents. Our collaborations with the community (eg. community groups, local labour groups, small businesses, anti-poverty groups) are cherished and key to our past and future successes.
We are a not-for-profit organization that is not a charity. This ensures there are no legal restrictions to our advocacy work faced by charities subject to federal tax laws. We are fiercely non-partisan and work closely with any decision-maker who wants to build a greener city for all.
TEA is looking for a Project and Operations Coordinator to start immediately (January 2018). The Coordinator will assist with outreach and administrative duties that are critical to the success of various TEA projects that tackle climate change, prevent pollution and promote zero waste solutions.

In particular, the candidate will coordinate various activities for TEA’s Zero Waste High Rise initiative, which focuses on assisting high rise buildings across the city to reduce waste and achieve greenhouse gas reductions.
The job requires daytime (Monday to Friday) as well as some evening and weekend work. The job also demands the ability to travel across the City of Toronto by transit (and sometimes by car) to work off-site at community locations. TEA provides compensation for work-related travel costs.
