– Maintain a positive brand across Ottawa Paw Pantry accounts on Facebook and Instagram.
– Develop and share content across all platforms to promote the organization.
– Collaborate on communications campaigns to support fundraising and other activities, driving traffic to the website and to donate
– Work with the Outreach team to develop relevant content for the website and other digital opportunities

– Eye for design
– Have experience working with social media platforms
– Experience working with a nonprofit as either a volunteer or an employee (preferred)
– Familiarity with Canva an asset
– Experience working collaboratively with a team
