Need a job? Calgary looking for 3,000 workers to help with Olympic plebiscite vote
City's elections office will pay $210 to $450 for temporary November work
The city's elections and census office is looking for 3,000 people to work on the impending Olympic plebiscite.
On Thursday, the Elections Calgary team put out a press release calling for applicants who can work at the voting stations during November's plebiscite on whether or not the city should bid to host the 2026 Winter Games.
You don't need to be a Canadian citizen but you do have to be eligible to work in Canada, attend a training session and be available to work extended hours on the advance voting days, Nov. 6 and 7, and the final voting day, Nov. 13.
The total pay for each position ranges from $210 to $450.
"We are looking for individuals who are passionate about the community and interested in democracy," said Laura Kennedy, returning officer for the City of Calgary.
"Vote 2018 is an opportunity for Calgarians to respond to the question asked by council. We need a lot of people to help ensure the voting process runs smoothly and efficiently."
Applications can be done online. Successful candidates will hear back from the office no later than Nov. 7.
