Saskatchewanderer - The Best Job Ever
Applications for the 2020 Saskatchewanderer will be open starting at noon on October 8, 2019.
We are looking for the next Saskatchewanderer.
The Government of Saskatchewan is looking for an enthusiastic, outgoing self-starter with a love for social media and a passion for Saskatchewan.
We want you to live, work and play in Saskatchewan from January to December of 2020.
This job allows you the opportunity to explore all that Saskatchewan offers and to do it in a way that our past Wanderer's have not! As the Saskatchewanderer, we ask you to be able to do it all... capture stunning video footage and photography, keep the following engaged through social media and the blog, write and edit stories and share your experience in a way that captivates your audience and then do it all over again and again....and again! Earning a salary of $55 - $60K is just one of the perks to this busy, yet challenging role.
Zane shared his experiences through videos, photos and written posts. We want you to do just that. But we want you to find new people, new businesses and new spots to satisfy those suffering from a little Saskatchewanderlust.
Where will you wander?
Help develop a calendar of events and then hit the road to collect video, take pictures and write stories about your experiences.
As a Saskatchewan ambassador, you will promote our province to the world, showing what it’s like to live, work and play in our province. Some of your responsibilities will include: choosing locations and events to explore, setting up and conducting interviews, shooting and editing video, writing stories and populating a blog, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram with high-quality content that shows off the best of Saskatchewan. You will need to be able to work well independently, since most of the time you’ll be on the road on your own.

The diversity of the people in the Government of Saskatchewan is one of its greatest strengths. Managing diversity successfully means creating an environment that values and uses the contributions of people with different backgrounds, experiences and perspectives.
Diversity refers to all of the characteristics that make individuals different from each other. These differences can include factors such as race, ethnicity, gender, or having a disability.
Our province is becoming more diverse with more people from around the world moving here. As well, Aboriginal youth are the fastest growing demographic in the province. At the same time, more persons with a disability are moving into the workforce and contributing to our growing province.
It is important that the Government of Saskatchewan reflects the diversity found in our province and that our policies, programs and frontline services are responsive and relevant to the people of the province.
