About TechSoup Canada
At TechSoup Canada, we believe technology is key to helping nonprofits achieve their full potential. We work to lower the barriers to technology through access to tools and knowledge. One of our core programs involves access to discounted technology products from over 30 companies such as Microsoft, Zoom, Symantec and Cisco to eligible charities, libraries and nonprofits. We also create and share resources, such as articles, blogs and webinars, to help nonprofits learn about technology and make informed decisions.
About the Centre for Social Innovation
TechSoup Canada is a program of the Centre for Social Innovation (CSI): a coworking space, community, and launchpad for people who are changing the world. CSI provides its members with the tools they need to accelerate their success and amplify their impact. Together, we’re building a movement of nonprofits, for-profits, entrepreneurs, artists, and activists working across sectors to create a better world.
About the Role
Navigating the numerous different products and eligibility rules of our program is a challenge for many of our member organizations. Accessing the wealth of information available on technology can also be overwhelming. As a Customer Help Desk Representative, your job is to make it as easy as possible for our member organizations to request products and find relevant resources.
You might start your day answering phone calls and emails from nonprofits across Canada to help them understand the different products available to them. In between, you might use various online resources to verify the charitable activities of our new members. Occasionally, you might join a brainstorming session on how we can improve our members’ experience. After responding to some more emails you might end your day by giving input on how to streamline existing processes.
