Apply by sending a resume/CV and cover letter to admin@partnersinart.ca, subject line: PIA – Application for Operations Coordinator. Application deadline is Aug. 1, 2023.

The Operations Coordinator will support senior staff and volunteers in managing day-to-day functions, implementing long-term strategies, and would ensure the smooth and organized functioning of PIA’s many internal activities. The ideal candidate will have a background working in arts administration, with excellent administrative, organizational and communication skills as the primary point of contact for PIA member inquiries.  

Working with PIA’s Director of Operations and Volunteer Co-Presidents, this person will perform a number of essential financial and administrative tasks related to the organization’s day to day operations, communications, financial management, and fundraising. With a growing membership of over 200, PIA’s Operations Coordinator must be capable of overseeing multiple ongoing projects, team schedules and tasks, and liaising between multiple parties. This role would be primarily remote (work from home), but attendance at in-person meetings would be mandatory for minute-taking. In-person and Zoom meetings take place anywhere between 1-4 times per week with lightened schedules and workloads in the Summer months. 

Furthermore, the ideal candidate would demonstrate knowledge of diversity, equity, inclusion, accessibility and best practices in the arts and the awareness of the impacts of funding and support on equity-deserving communities within the Toronto, Canada-wide art community.

The individual will have familiarity with the contemporary art world, and through this position, will gain invaluable experience and contribute to a growing organization. The Operations Coordinator would assist PIA’s staff and volunteers with the implementation of educational art tours, trips, and the funding of contemporary Canadian art via our Project Development Committee. The Operations Coordinator would have the opportunity for upward mobility within the organization, and we highly encourage enthusiastic folks with a passion for art, advocacy, and organization to apply!
