Position description

Talent Beyond Boundaries (TBB) envisions a world where forcibly displaced people can use their skills and talents to move to secure futures. We work with governments, employers and partners to overcome the barriers that often prevent refugees from accessing skilled migration pathways. TBB seeks to be a catalyst for systems change in skilled migration, laying the groundwork for this solution to scale to serve millions of displaced people. 

SCORE OF ROLE 

This role is responsible for fundraising, marketing, and communications activities to support Talent Beyond Boundaries' mission in Canada. This includes leading TBB’s participation in the Government’s Economic Mobility Pathways Project (EMPP), designed to welcome 2000 refugees and their families through economic immigration programs over the next two years. We are seeking a dynamic, proactive and creative person with a broad skill set, who will thrive as part of a fast-moving, collaborative and global team. Note: some out-of-hours work may be required to accommodate multiple timezones.
