Program Assistant

Job Description

The Fredericton Botanic Garden is seeking an outgoing, social media savvy PROGRAM ASSISTANT, to fill an eight to 10 -week position funded under either the CSJ summer job creation programs. To qualify for this position, applicants must be between the ages of 15 and 30, and legally entitled to work in Canada. Compensation is $16.00 per hour, for a 37.5 hour work week, much of it spent outdoors in our beautiful surroundings.

To a considerable extent this is a public-facing position. The incumbent will be trained to provide interpretive tours of the Gardens, highlighting various collections, and sharing information on the species contained within them.

They will also deliver programs, with an emphasis on children 12 and under. This will include weekly environmentally themed story times, and weekly hands-on discovery sessions, relating to nature. A basic library of books for story time and curriculum for discovery sessions exists, but the incumbent will be expected to further develop and enhance the materials. They will be provided with a modest budget but encouraged to seek out free resources (public library, etc.).

Design and execution of promotional materials, primarily social media but including other mediums, will also be a job responsibility. These materials will promote not only the activities carried out by the incumbent, but other Garden related activities.

Our ideal candidate will be happy outdoors in the beautiful surroundings of the Fredericton Botanic Garden. They will have a love of nature, a thirst for knowledge, and genuinely like spending time with children (note – the children are accompanied by an adult, so this is not a childcare situation). A willingness to wear silly hats and adopt different voices for story time is an asset.

A basic familiarity with flowers, plants and trees is extremely desirable. Although training will be provided, a foundation upon which to build would be great!

You should also have skill with the Microsoft Suite of products and experience with Facebook, Instagram, X, TikTok, and other social media platforms. Familiarity with the Wix website platform would be a bonus.

To apply, please send your cover letter and resume, as one PDF, to fredbotanicgarden@gmail.com, with Program Assistant in the subject line. Applications received on or before April 5th will be considered.
