Call for Applications: Facilities Assistant

Hosted by Akin Collective

Akin is hiring a part-time Facilities Assistant! 

For this role we have an immediate need for support which will result in increased hours in September, October and November of 2021. One of our studio locations is closing down and 2 or 3 new locations will be opening during that time. Some full days will be needed and we anticipate September 20-October 7 to be particularly busy. After the studio closure and studio openings there will be less work and the role will switch to more occasional work.

This role will be working at all Akin locations on an as-needed basis.

This role can be physically demanding. Some tasks may involve physical work such as heavy lifting (up to 70 lbs), bending over, and climbing a ladder. These tasks will take place at Akin Studio and Programming locations across Toronto. During COVID-19 we are following the Health and Safety Guidelines from Public Health and will support you with documentation regarding policies and procedures when being on site.


At Akin we celebrate our inclusive work environment. We welcome and encourage applications from members of all backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives to apply. Adapting the Toronto Arts Council’s Equity Priority Group Policy, applicants who self-identify as belonging to one (or more) of Toronto Arts Council’s Equity Priority Groups (Persons of Colour, Indigenous, Deaf Persons, Persons with Disabilities and Persons Living with Mental Illness, 2SLGBTQIAP) will all be prioritized. 

We are committed to providing reasonable accommodations and will work with you to meet your needs. If you are a person with a disability and require assistance during the application process, please don’t hesitate to reach out to work@akincollective.com.
