  • Customer service
  • Administration, documentation & research
  • Sales & marketing
  • Event planning and execution
  • Fundraising
  • Intern & volunteer management
The Ideal Candidate

You are an extremely organized, well connected, theatre-loving, tech-savvy go-getter who isn’t afraid to jump in and move our organization forward. Your attitude in this time of uncertainty is to embrace the chaos and look for possibilities and opportunities, all with an eye to advancing Quest’s mission and being strategic.

You can problem-solve like nobody’s business, whip up a whimsical and intelligent Instagram story, and know all the hashtags to drive engagement and reach. An arts administration nerd at heart with a head for numbers, you have the training and/or experience to show it. You have post-secondary education or equivalent experience (which may include volunteering) in administration/business, marketing, fundraising, event planning, volunteer, and/or stage management. Experience with Microsoft Office is a must and familiarity with Microsoft Teams, Zoom, Google Classroom, Canva, and Theatre Manager would be advantageous.

You are a team player, a clear communicator, and a people person who loves to network. You are committed to ensuring that our organization embraces its value statements, is sustainable, and grounded in ongoing work in the areas of equity, diversity, inclusion, and accessibility.

Experience of working in a charitable arts organization and/or theatre would be a considerable asset.

Security check (paid by Quest Theatre) is a requirement. A valid driver’s license and comfort driving our small fleet of touring vans would be preferred.

  • Full-time hours based on 40 hours a week, at $18-20/hour (based on experience and pending funding support).

We would be happy to discuss accommodating your specific access and other needs.

We thank all those who apply and regret that we will only be able to contact those shortlisted for the role. We anticipate online interviews to be scheduled for the week of December 14, 2020.
