CKDU is a non-profit campus and community radio station and student society based at
Dalhousie University, serving listeners throughout Halifax. Our mandate is to provide an
alternative to private and public broadcasters and serve as a forum for diverse and
underrepresented voices and artists. The station broadcasts 24 hours a day, 365 days a year
and is run by roughly 100 volunteers, a volunteer board of directors, and 3 core staff.
Dalhousie University and the offices of CKDU 88.1FM sit on unceded Mi’kmaq territory. We
recognize the colonial impacts that rest within university spaces and hiring processes and work
to address them. We welcome feedback as we do so. We are all Treaty people.
The Operations Director is responsible for administration and financial management at CKDU.
Specifically, this involves developing and administering the operating and capital budgets;
coordinating grant applications, donor campaigns, advertising and other fundraising;
maintaining resources and office supplies; communicating with the CKDU Board of Directors,
the Dalhousie Student Union, government regulators and external organizations; and working
with the staff collective, committees and volunteers on station projects.


The Operations Director must have financial management and administrative skills, and an
understanding of campus/community radio, including CKDU's mandate and programming.
Experience with grant and donor-funded community organizations and a demonstrated ability
to work with volunteers are essential. Strong written and verbal communication skills,

organizational ability, and interpersonal relationship skills are required. Experience or skills in
fundraising methods are an asset. Experience with or training in consensus decision making and
non-hierarchical structures is an asset.
CKDU works with a wide range of community members. We expect all staff to uphold our
commitment to welcoming each member into our station and supporting their needs and voice.
This includes (but is not limited to) support for racialized, Indigenous, newcomer, trans,
non-binary, and incarcerated programmers as well as programmers with access needs related
to physical and mental health.


This is a full-time position based on 32 hours per week with a schedule to be determined in
collaboration with staff collective. Salary starts at $31,033 annually with basic benefits through
Dalhousie, and a competitive 6 weeks of vacation. The salary will be reviewed within one year,
provided completion of a successful review. Payroll is administered through Dalhousie, and is
paid monthly. Planned start date is January 7, 2019.

Everyone is thanked for applying; however, only those selected for an interview will be contacted. CKDU strives to be an equal opportunity employer and strongly encourages applications from minority and under-represented groups. CKDU recognizes that access to jobs such as this is often limited for people from marginalized communities. We also acknowledge that lived experience can be as valuable as formal training, but harder to “prove” in a job application. We encourage applicants to describe the unique contributions they, as individuals with diverse experiences, would bring to the CKDU in their cover letter or resume. Please help circulate this job posting.
