Remuneration: Between $44,000 - $48,000

This position focuses on administrative tasks, volunteer management and interaction with participants – representatives, teachers, students and the National Theatre School of Canada (NTS) team. As the main point of connection between our clientele in Ontario and the National Theatre School (NTS), this very autonomous person based in the Toronto area will be able to communicate effectively and build strong team spirit despite the distance from the Montreal-based team.
