Loaned Representative Program

Can you relate to the following statements?

  • I want  to engage in the kind of work that has a positive impact on my community
  • I think I would benefit from a temporary change of scenery
  • I want to learn new skills and expand on those I have
  • I have an appreciation for immersion and enjoy learning by doing
  • I believe I have a lot to offer and would like the opportunity to expand my horizons
  • I want to increase my value as an employee within the public service in a concrete and practical way

If any of these points speak to you, taking part in the Loaned Representative Program (LRP) may be just what you need.

We are looking for enthusiastic public servants interested to take on one of a variety of roles created to help us raise funds  and make a difference in our community.

As a Loaned Representative (or LR), you would have the opportunity to nurture your inner philanthropist while learning new skills and increasing your value as a government employee.
 

What is a “Loaned Representative”?

A LR is a government employee who is essentially loaned out to our organisation for a predetermined amount of time. However, they continue to be employed and paid by their department.

What happens to an LR’s substantive position while they’re on loan?

Similar to what happens when an employee takes on an assignment or takes temporary leave for full-time studies, LRs retain their substantive positions.

How does the LRP benefit their department?

When federal employees join the LRP, our organization benefits from their knowledge, experience, and enthusiasm. In exchange, we do our best to provide them with every opportunity to expand their knowledge and professional network, while increasing and diversifying their experience so that they return to their organization ready to become ambassadors for the Campaign, or to take on new challenges.  

Where does one have to be in their career to apply?

When selecting a new LR, a candidate’s level and classification within government is less important to us than what they know, what they are capable of, and where their interests lie.

Every experience, work-related or otherwise, has added substance to a candidate’s pool of knowledge.  What we want to do is draw from that pool and, in exchange, add to it.  If you are a hard-working, positive person who is keen on developing and expanding your professional experience and network in a not-for-profit setting, we’re interested – regardless of the role you presently occupy.

How do I apply?

After reviewing the various positions available, please obtain your manager’s approval, and then send your CV and a cover letter (maximum 500 words) indicating which position is of interest to gcwcclrprogram@unitedwayottawa.caPlease copy your manager in your submission.
