The Climate Hub at UBC is a student-led, campus-wide initiative that mobilizes the power of hopeful climate narratives and community-building frameworks to engage community stakeholders in bold, systemic climate action. With a hybrid structure composed of student workers, community volunteers and UBC support staff, the Climate Hub is uniquely positioned to empower university students with climate storytelling techniques and peer facilitation skills that resonate deeply with other youth and students. The Climate Hub advances UBC’s commitment to sustainability leadership, climate emergency strategic priorities and community innovation by bringing together students, staff, faculty, and community partners to mobilize knowledge, facilitate interdisciplinary teaching and research and provide programming around climate justice principles, solution-based thinking and community resilience building.
The Climate Hub Projects Administrator is responsible for the delivery of Climate Hub projects and programs, oversees a team of GAAs, leads community-building efforts and fosters relationships with partners on and off-campus. The Project Administrator also supports overall Climate Hub strategic planning and reporting to advance climate justice. The Climate Hub Projects Administrator manages the work of Climate Hub student staff and volunteers working to implement projects and programs within their portfolio and secures funding for project and program implementation as needed. The Climate Hub Projects Administrator will work at the Centre for Interactive Research in Sustainability (CIRS) at UBC, Vancouver, BC. The position involves some travel throughout the Lower Mainland to facilitate workshops, give presentations and develop partnerships, with the possible need to travel to other locations across UBC-connected areas as programs develop.
The Climate Hub Projects Administrator works closely with the Climate Hub Coordinator and the UBC Sustainability Hub. The work of the Projects Administrator also engages with the Climate Hub Student Director advisory committee, PICS, Campus and Community Planning, the Centre for Community Engaged Learning, UBC Wellbeing and the UBC student community. The incumbent is expected to be comfortable working independently and with minimal guidance.

Consequence of Error/Judgment
|The Projects Administrator is expected to exercise initiative and good judgment in establishing priorities and conducting day-to-day administrative and research-related tasks. Major financial matters, partnerships, long-term planning, and large strategic decisions should be brought to the attention of the Climate Hub Coordinator. Errors in judgment or communications could result in reputational damage to Climate Hub, Sustainability Hub, UBC and possibly other academic institutions and researchers, with possible consequential financial implications. New or unusual problems should be discussed with the Climate Hub Coordinator, the UBC Sustainability Hub Senior Director and Climate Hub Student Directors.|
This position offers considerable latitude. Work is reviewed against the achievement of tasks and performance objectives identified by the Climate Hub Coordinator, the UBC Sustainability Hub Senior Director and Climate Hub Student Directors.
The Climate Hub Projects Administrator oversees the work of Climate Hub student staff and student volunteers as their work relates to the implementation of Climate Hub projects and programs in their portfolio.
