Administrative Coordinator

The Administrative Coordinator is responsible for maintaining operational procedures, through timely financial tracking, accurate reporting, and coordination with other ArtsJunktion staff. This position acts more as a day to day operation management position, as well as bookkeeping.


Job Type: Part Time, 10 - 15 hours a week


Salary Range: $20 - $22 per hour




ArtsJunktion mb Inc. is a community-based charitable organization committed to environmental sustainability and community development through the redistribution of reusable materials. Since ArtsJunktion’s incorporation in 2007, ArtsJunktion mb has grown from a ‘creative reuse’ dream into an organization with 2000 members, a group of loyal materials donors, its own depot space in the heart of Winnipeg’s Exchange District, and art and creative reuse workshops. ArtsJunktion gathers reusable materials from businesses, organizations, and community members—materials that would otherwise be considered waste—and redirects them from landfills by sorting them, making them available to the public at our depot, and providing workshops and advice for how these materials can be repurposed in creative, fun, and useful ways. All supplies are available take-what-you-need, pay-what-you-can.

ArtsJunktion Inc provides art workshops with an emphasis on repurposed materials to support local artists through promotion of their art and through fairly paid employment opportunities. We also work to reduce landfill waste by receiving materials from businesses, organizations and individuals for distribution to the public, and by increasing environmental awareness through community engagement and programming. We want to provide a safe and inclusive space for all community members, and we are proud to support our neighbourhood, city, and province through vibrant, reciprocal partnerships.
