We are looking for our first ever…. SE Explorers!

AKA – The Best Gig Ever

 

Applications for our 2022 SE Explorers are open until March 25, 2022.

 

The Gig:

Ever looked at the Saskatchewanderer and thought…. that would be so neat!? Well we are looking for casual SE Explorers to show Canada what we have to offer in SE Sask! If you are proud of the region and enjoy experiencing new things, this might be right up your alley!

Community Futures Sunrise is looking for a number of enthusiastic, outgoing, self-starters with a love for southeast Saskatchewan and a passion for new experiences.

And the great thing is, we are looking for SE Explorers from all demographics! Maybe you are in university and are home for the summer… Or maybe you are a stay at home dad looking to experience new things with your kids. Perhaps you and your girlfriends are retired and you love to get in the car and go!

This casual job will pay you to do what you love most…have fun, experience new things and promote the region we all know and love! As one of our SE Explorers, we ask that you are able to capture experiences through video and photography and write about your experience in a way that captivates your audience. But no worries….we will provide the training for that!

Where will you explore?

As an SE Explorer, you will promote SE Saskatchewan to all of Canada, showcasing what it’s like to live, work and play in our region. Some of your responsibilities will include: choosing locations and events to explore, scheduling times to visit, shooting video footage and taking photos, writing stories and creating content for social media… all of which showcases the best of SE Sask. You will need to be able to work well independently, since most of the time you will be on the road on your own…. or maybe with your friends that are tagging along for the fun!

What are we looking for?

Someone with the following skills and abilities:

  • The desire to experience new things
  • Charismatic presentation and the ability to connect with a wider audience
  • Experience shooting videos and taking photos…even if its with your phone!
  • Experience writing and connecting with people
  • Ability to meet deadlines
  • Live or work in SE Saskatchewan
  • Work independently and as a contributing member of a team to achieve common goals
  • Represent CF Sunrise in a positive way

Curious about the hours? They are flexible and customizable to suit your schedule and ours.

Because this isn’t your average job (it’s way more fun!), you don’t have to worry about writing a resume (whew!). In a video (2 minutes or less!), show us what makes you the best potential SE Explorer. This video is important, outstanding videos will lead to an interview.  And don’t forget to tell us why you want the gig and why you would be an amazing representative for SE Sask! Again, there is no resume needed, just include a few paragraphs indicating where you have acquired the skills and abilities listed above to successfully carry out the role of a SE Explorer!

Applicants should send their video to ecdev@cfsunrise.ca by March 25, 2022. Once we’ve reviewed the applications, we’ll create our interview shortlist. When the interview process is complete, we will contact and later announce the successful candidates.
