Vancouver Brain Injury Association (Vancouver BIA) needs immediate administrative assistance with experience writing copy for a variety of projects. Experience with Microsoft Office applications and Google business applications is required. Knowledge and experience of Google G Suite would be useful.
Vancouver Brain Injury Association has been an all-volunteer nonprofit organization. All of the administrative support and all of the copywriting was done by volunteers. However, some were students who have graduated and gone on to work.

This position can grow into a permanent part-time position, depending on finding a reliable and efficient candidate.
