Looking for a new Admin Team Member!
Title: Logistics Assistant, National Programs
Reports to: Manager, Operations
Location: Hybrid (Montréal based)
The Canadian Association of Midwives (CAM) is the national professional association representing midwives and the profession of midwifery in Canada. Our work is focused on ensuring more equitable access to high quality sexual, reproductive, and newborn midwifery services in Canada and globally. To achieve this, we work in partnership with the National Aboriginal Council of Midwives (NACM), midwifery associations, midwives, and relevant stakeholders.
NACM’s mission is to promote excellence in reproductive health care for First Nations, Inuit, and Métis communities. Both CAM and NACM are governed autonomously but share infrastructure and human resources. Both organizations are staffed by a passionate team of individuals dedicated to providing support for midwives and Indigenous midwives and the profession of midwifery across Canada and globally.
Benefits to Working with CAM
CAM is deeply committed to ensuring our organization reflects the diversity of our members and of the clients they serve –this includes diversity of race, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, national origin, disability, and all other protected grounds under the Canadian Human Rights Act. CAM encourages submissions from applicants from diverse communities.
As CAM’s Logistics Assistant for the National programs, you’ll work with a team of committed administrative professionals to support the implementation of programming through a variety of administrative, clerical, and non-supervisory tasks. In your day to day, you’ll have the opportunity to work on detailed assignments such as consultant travel arrangements, contract development, and preparing procurement documentation – both autonomously and with the support of the team.
To be successful in the role, you’ll need to be detailed oriented, organized, and committed to following CAM’s processes for each and every transaction. Most importantly, CAM’s values of equity, respect, responsibility, and integrity will be demonstrated not only in your work, but in your interactions with team members and stakeholders alike.
In return, you’ll work in a value driven organization while gaining valuable experience in the non-profit sector. There will be professional development opportunities to advance your skills, work-life balance, and mentorship from your supervisor. You’ll refine your administrative capacity while developing a few new skills along the way.
