We are delighted to be adding more Overlappers to our truly wonderful team! We are seeking a Freelance/Sessional Learning Facilitators.
About Overlap’s Design Practice
Before we get started on this journey together, we need to clarify what Overlap does and what we mean by “design”. For many people, design has become synonymous with visual arts, fashion, interiors or architecture—you might very well be a graphic designer reading this! While design can be about those things, the act of designing is all about solving problems and creating solutions.
Overlap’s design practice focuses on solving “big picture problems” like organizational and societal challenges. Things like trying to improve childhood wellbeing in Canada, mixing design methods with policy advocacy, strategic plans and frameworks that drive new ideas and behaviours. We work collaboratively with diverse stakeholders, ask lots of questions to make sure we are solving the right problem, and launch solutions that put people first.
About Overlap’s Creative Problem Solving School
Overlap has been teaching customers and clients to use the methods in our design practice to bring transformative change to their organizations for 10 years. In 2021 we launched our Creative Problem Solving School, a home for all of our training and capacity building programs. The School runs a regular schedule of programming open to the public, in addition to courses and programs for Overlap corporate clients.
This position is great for freelancers, gig workers or practitioners looking to set their own hours or add an additional service offering to their mix. We typically offer at least one training every week, enabling you to decide your workload.
