About the role

The Work, Economic Security and Social Inclusion (WESSI) department is one of eight departments at the Brotherhood that has responsibility for assisting people who are unemployed to access opportunities to live and work independently through effective, high quality employment and training and support programs.

The role of the Digital Literacy Trainer is to help bridge the digital divide our clients are experiencing which creates barriers to accessing employment opportunities. This role will collaborate with staff across multiple programs and support clients one-on-one to help bridge that gap by assisting them to use their internet, devices and basic computer programs to achieve their goal of securing a decent job.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, this role will initially provide support via a digital platform, changing to face-to-face support only when it is deemed safe to do so.

  • Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint), Internet Banking, Internet use (specifically, looking for jobs via job seeking web sites), Emails, Online Conferencing (ZOOM, Skype, Teams), smart phone technology
