The Arctic Gateway

Full-Time Position - Yellowknife, NT

We are recruiting an Indigenous Initiatives Fellow in partnership with the Momentum Fellowship to work alongside our network of funders and our team of Arctic Indigenous leaders. The Indigenous Initiatives Fellow will have the opportunity to travel internationally and across the Arctic while facilitating strategic development of the Arctic Indigenous Fund and supporting general administration of the Arctic Funders Collaborative (AFC). The position will provide an opportunity to meet Indigenous leaders and learn about how Indigenous communities across the Arctic are implementing innovative approaches to environmental stewardship, cultural and language revitalization, and sustainable economic development. The Fellow will get to learn about the philanthropic sector, have access to professional development and leadership training, and get to build their own network of peers through the Momentum Fellowship. The Fellow will report to the AFC’s Director and be responsible to the leadership of the Arctic Indigenous Fund Advisors. This is an exciting and unique opportunity to work with us to grow the field of philanthropy in the North.

The fellowship is a 24-month salaried position located in Yellowknife, NT, Canada. Given the nature of the role, we are open to flexible work arrangements and are looking for a candidate familiar with, and ideally from, a Northern Indigenous community. Ideal candidates are interested in and committed to the field of philanthropy.
