About SFU Public Square:
SFU Public Square is a signature initiative supporting SFU’s strategy to be Canada’s most community-engaged research university. The program mobilizes the university’s physical, intellectual and virtual capacities to help people think critically about issues and foster discussion among diverse communities. SFU Public Square pushes the boundaries of civic engagement and creates a gathering place for interaction and experimentation - a space where people can explore and exchange ideas across sectors, generations, values, and cultures.
As Design Coordinator, you will be a key member of the SFU Public Square team. Relevant and
effective communications and marketing are integral to the success of the program, our events, and online/in-person community engagement activity. Our team has adopted a learning culture, with the aim to increase knowledge, competence, and performance across the entire organization. If mentorship, feedback and experimentation are not part of your approach to work, this is not the place for you. This is a dynamic work environment with rapidly evolving priorities and demands. The ideal candidate will be flexible and have a mix of design and marketing skills. You should be self-motivated, highly organized, and able to manage several projects at once. You should also have an exceptional attention to detail and the desire to bring new ideas to the table.
