Loaned Representative Program

Can you relate to the following statements?

  • I want  to engage in the kind of work that has a positive impact on my community
  • I think I would benefit from a temporary change of scenery
  • I want to learn new skills and expand on those I have
  • I enjoy learning by doing
  • I believe I have a lot to offer and would like the opportunity to expand my horizons
  • I want to increase my value as an employee in a concrete and practical way

If any of these points speak to you, taking part in the United Way East Ontario Loaned Representative Program (LRP) may be just what you need. We are looking for enthusiastic employees interested to take on one of a variety of roles (listed below), created to help us raise funds and make a difference in our community.

As a Loaned Representative (or LR), you would have the opportunity to nurture your inner philanthropist while learning new skills and increasing your value as an employee.

What is a “Loaned Representative”?

A LR is an employee who is essentially loaned out to our organization for a predetermined amount of time. However, they continue to be employed and paid by their workplace.

What happens to an LR’s substantive position while they’re on loan?

Similar to what happens when an employee takes on an assignment or takes temporary leave for full-time studies, LRs retain their substantive positions.

How does the LRP benefit their workplace?

When employees join the LRP, our organization benefits from their knowledge, experience, and enthusiasm. In exchange, we do our best to provide them with every opportunity to expand their knowledge and professional network, while increasing and diversifying their experience so that they return to their organization ready to become United Way ambassadors for the campaign, or to take on new challenges.  

Where does one have to be in their career to apply?

When selecting a new LR, a candidate’s level and classification within government is less important to us than what they know, what they are capable of, and where their interests lie.

Every experience, work-related or otherwise, has added substance to a candidate’s pool of knowledge.  What we want to do is draw from that pool and, in exchange, add to it.  If you are a hard-working, positive person who is keen on developing and expanding your professional experience and network in a not-for-profit setting, we’re interested – regardless of the role you presently occupy.

What types of positions are available?

How do I apply?

After reviewing the various positions available, please obtain your manager’s approval, and then send your CV and a cover letter (maximum 500 words) by email indicating which position is of interest in the subject line to jgsteil@unitedwayeo.ca. Please copy your manager in your submission. Application deadlines are typically in the spring and we will post the next submission deadline in 2020.
