Job Opportunity – Communications and Public Relations Specialist – Two Openings

February 13th, 2024

Due to recent organizational restructuring and an impending parental leave, APEGS is seeking two experienced communications and public relations professionals to join the team. You will contribute to developing and maintaining the reputation of APEGS as a sound, professional regulator of the engineering and geoscience professions in Saskatchewan. The outputs you produce will be relied on, seen, and utilized by internal employees, applicants, over 15,000 APEGS registrants, and external stakeholders, with the overall regulatory purpose of protecting the public.

One position is suited perfectly for a seasoned communications professional seeking a short-term (16 to 18 month) opportunity to make a meaningful difference by building, modernizing and implementing impactful strategies.

The second position is a permanent, full-time position. It comes with all the benefits of the temporary position and will be of interest to professionals seeking a new opportunity to play a vital long-term role in bringing a multi-year strategic communications plan to life.

Your qualifications and experience will align with a market-competitive salary range that starts at $78,000, supplemented with a comprehensive benefits program as part of the APEGS Total Rewards offering. Both positions report to the Director of Communications and Public Relations.

Qualifications include:

  • Diploma or undergraduate degree in journalism, public relations, English or an equivalent combination of education and experience
  • Three to five years progressive, broad-range experience as a strong, solid generalist that is keen to lean on external third parties for highly specialized skill sets when needed
  • Highly developed writing and editing skills, with proven ability to create customized pieces of work for a wide array of audiences

See the link below for a complete description of the position, the minimum qualifications, and desired competencies.
