Move Coordinator

Position Summary:
The Move Coordinator is an integral part of the Operations team, planning and coordinating all details of the move as well as providing on-call support on the day of a move. This role is completely remote. The Move Coordinator corresponds with the client (typically over the phone), ensures volunteer teams are prepared, and that move goes smoothly, including responding to and problem-solving unforeseen challenges on the day of the move.

Responsibilities
- Reach out to the client over the phone within 24 hours of being assigned the move to confirm all details, explain next steps and address any questions/concerns from the client
- Communicate with the Move Coordination Supervisor(s) to recruit an appropriate team of volunteers
- Coordinate move logistics, including (but not limited to) vehicle reservations, storage arrangements, and scheduling of private security or police
- Create a customized itinerary for the move (using a provided template)
- Be “on call” (reachable by phone) throughout the duration of the move to support the Lead Mover with any unexpected challenges.
- Report back to the Move Coordination Supervisor(s) after each move to debrief
- Use patience, empathy, and active listening skills in all interactions with clients and volunteers
- Have regular check-ins with your Move Coordination Supervisor(s)
- Follow the processes and procedures detailed in the Move Coordination Manual
- Attend regular Intake Team meetings as instructed by the Move Coordination Supervisor(s)
- Highly recommended to sign up as a Mover for a least 1 move

Time commitment:
Approximately 3-4 hours of planning and 4-5 hours of ‘on-call’ availability per move. The expectation is to coordinate a minimum of 1 move per month. The first few moves will tof course take longer to plan as you are getting used to the process.

*Please note: the work of a Move Coordinator isn’t performed in a single or continuous ‘shift’; rather, it involves communication with the client over the phone and planning at your convenience. Typically this planning stage spans a few days or a week prior to the move
date. Then, on the day of the move we ask you to be ‘on-call’, or available and reachable by phone should any issues arise during the move.
This is a fully remote position, with occasional meetings (in-person and/or conference calls.) A 4 to 6 month commitment is strongly preferred.

Autisme sans limites

volunteer

Le Sud-Ouest

Our organization works with high social and cognitive functioning autistic adults from 18 to 35. We are currently searching for non-autistic participants to take part in our activities. We are not looking for people wishing to do interventions but rather to participate in the activities offered by the organization with our customers. One of the problems often encountered by our customers is the desire to participate as well as motivation. On the other hand, we have noticed that the presence of neurotypical people of the same age during our activities increases the motivation of our participants. Therefore, it would be interesting to be able to do business with you given the prestige granted to your university as well as the presence of your student life service.

Our organization offers a wide variety of programs in partnership with influential players in our community. There is no minimum time required and our recruiting time is generally from mid-august until late September. I personally oversee the bank of non-autistic participants and will direct them daily. I will also give them a small information and formation class before joining our ranks.

On the plus side, students and post-graduates who would like to join our team of non-autistic participants would have a great opportunity to get to know this clientele and understand how it works. In addition, the number of our activities and partnerships is very diversified, which allows us to reach several interests for the participants: cooking workshop at the ITHQ, dance workshop with Les Grands Ballets Canadiens, theater workshop with the TNM, art therapy with the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, evenings of board games, physical activities, improvisation workshop with The National League of Improvisation, documentary theatre, with the organization Porte-Parole, etc. I invite you to look at our website at:
