Event Attendants: Knox is fortunate to have a facility that is much in demand in our community. We give space to our partners in ministry and have a rental scale that offers preferential rates to not-for-profit agencies. The increase in demand means that Knox will need to train some new ‘Event Attendants’ to provide set-up, monitor activities, sometimes provide sound or video services, take-down and clean up.

Training is provided. A police check is required. Equitable pay is offered. The successful candidates will require some technical know-how, or the ability to learn, and be physically able to move tables and chairs. Send resume to knox@knoxwaterloo.ca.
