Professional Development Lead

The Member Development team is the Human Resources function of Enactus, responsible for the acquisition and management of talent, motivation and engagement of team members, and team culture at all levels of the organization.

This year, some of the objectives the Member Development team is looking to accomplish include:

  1. Identifying and recruiting the very best talent on the University of Ottawa campus, specific to the needs of our projects. We have a goal of receiving 300+ applications in May & September, and selecting a total of ~80 of the top candidates
  2. Creating a sense of belonging across the organization and instill a sense of meaningfulness with every person on our team
  3. Develop management and leadership skills with members through internal workshops, events and a video series exclusively available to our team

The Director of Professional Development leads a series of events, workshops and initiatives to develop our members into leaders and future managers on our team. From skills development workshops that teach members about specific skills like Photoshop and Web development, to workshops around motivating a team, the workshops are delivered by community partners, senior Enactus members or professionals in the community.
