Upcoming Roles at 10C

10C is hiring two Community Operations Assistants

As 10C gradually reopens and reawakens, we are looking for additional support in the day-to-day operations at our downtown space.  The Community Operations Assistants will work closely with the Community Operations Lead to facilitate many of our core place-based activities, including building operations, community events, and welcoming, supporting, and directing any 10C community members who use the space.  They may also have the opportunity to engage in research and reporting around potential 10C partners, members and collaborators that could relate to 10C’s work.

10C Shared Space (10C) is the hub for community changemakers in Guelph-Wellington. We are a not-for-profit social enterprise working to create platforms (physical, virtual, networks and financial) for those working across sectors and engaging in collaborative environmental, social community development work to improve our community. 

10C is committed to learning, equity and building a diverse community in which everyone has the opportunity to thrive. We welcome team members with the knowledge and skills to productively work with diverse communities. 10C specifically encourages applications from those across race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, physical abilities, and lived experiences.
