Job Role

At Textbooks for Change (T4C), we have been pushing hard to create strong partnerships across Ontario with post secondary institutions. These partnerships are essential to T4C’s growth and the impact we create around the world. On the cusp of a US expansion, T4C is looking for a highly motivated, passionate leader to join the team and take on the task of optimizing our growth across post-secondary institutions in Ontario.

  3. Bringing on Textbook Buy Back programs and student apartments across Ontario

  4. Implementing and iterating on sales processes including, email templates, infographics, partnership agreements, on boarding programs, client experience plans, etc.

You Have:


  • Experience in account management or community development

  • A proven track record: You have proven that you can leverage partnerships to generate leads, manage crucial partnership to foster growth, and you view failure as a learning experience.

  • A life: You have passions outside of work and contribute to the community that you live in

You Are:


  • Passionate for social change: Making a dent in the universe is something you want to be apart of

  • Professional: Our partner base is made up of highly respected academics and librarians. We need someone who knows how to write, speak, and act as a professional at all times.

  • A great communicator: You know how to get your message across clearly and concisely

What This Job is Not:

  • Consistent: We expect you to find solutions, learn from mistakes, implement processes, and move on to the next project

  • Structured: Your day-to-day will change constantly adapting to the company’s needs.

We Need You To:
