Frequently Asked Questions

The goal of the Jobline is to be a cost-effective and efficient platform for non-profits to post their opportunities. On a higher level, we hope Jobline helps contribute to a sustainable sector by highlighting opportunities for career growth and advancement for the sector’s emerging professionals.

The JobLine’s creation and management is led by the Edmonton Chamber of Voluntary Organizations.

No, the JobLine is completely free for all Edmonton-area non-profits to use. Organizations can post as many and as often as they need!

The Jobline is available for use only by Canadian registered charitable or not-for-profit organizations based in the Metro Edmonton area.

Organizations are free to post any paid employment opportunities to the JobLine. This includes everything from full-time permanent positions to contract work and Calls for Expressions of Interest.

Paid board positions are permitted, but volunteer board positions are not. For those, we recommend adding your opportunities to Volunteer Connector, which is a growing database of volunteer opportunities in Edmonton and throughout Alberta. Volunteer Connector is likewise completely free for non-profits to use to promote their opportunities.

No, the Jobline does not have a function to accept applications within the platform. Employers must provide instructions on how job hopefuls must submit their applications, including contact information. We recommend including a section on this at the end of your position description.

The Jobline currently covers the Metro Edmonton region (also commonly referred to as the Alberta Capital Region and the Edmonton Metropolitan Region). This includes Edmonton, Beaumont, Fort Saskatchewan, Leduc, St. Albert, Spruce Grove, Stony Plain, and Sherwood Park. Each new job posting will require you to input the job’s location, which is currently limited to the above options.

We are absolutely considering possibilities for expansion to include all Alberta non-profits soon! 

No. Jobline accounts are limited to non-profit employers only. 

Unfortunately, not quite yet. We recognize that this is an increasingly common approach for non-profits and are currently working to add functionality for one recruiter to manage multiple organization profiles.
