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

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

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.

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

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 take on new challenges with increased confidence.  

When selecting a new LR, a candidate’s level and job classification are 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.

United Way East Ontario has adeptly transitioned its operations to a hybrid work model. Recruitment and onboarding are done both virtually and in the office. United Way East Ontario follows government and public health guidelines and best practices for optimizing a hybrid workforce.  United Way East Ontario respects and can accommodate Loaned Representative Program participants’ employment agreements regarding virtual, hybrid and/or in office work models.
