Work Here

Your perspective will help determine your fit at 4Forward. If you’re agile, willing to learn new things, and comfortable with a lot of variety at work – you’ll fit in just fine. If you’re also an expert in leadership development, instructional design, or coaching we’d like to talk to you.

Browse our current openings below.

  • Are you a lifelong learner, a curious questioner?
  • Do you enjoy sharing your knowledge and learning ‘discoveries’?
  • Do you have a knack for taking lots of information and turning it into a teachable story?
  • Are you able to balance your creativity with logic and structure?
  • Do you enjoy telling a story with visuals—graphs, charts, maps, pictures or video?
  • Are you adept in the realm of words?
  • Are you known for your clear concise communication?
  • Can you easily see things from another’s perspective?
  • Do you have a passion for creating—or delivering—compelling content?
  • Do you have an ‘eye’ for good layout, and an ‘eye’ for detail?
  • Are you a ‘self-starter’, yet work well as part of a vibrant team?

If you answered “yes” to most or all of these questions, then we may have an opportunity for you.

We are expanding and interested in discussion with potential Instructional Designers, Coaches, Consultants, Facilitators and others engaged in leadership or management development.

We are open to a range of arrangements:

  • occasional, part-time, or full-time;
  • hourly- or project-based; and
  • independent contractor—or employee.

What it’s like to work with us:

We have a dynamic, entrepreneurial and collaborative environment with a ‘start-up’ feel, where priorities and the nature and volume of work often shift rapidly.

Our projects come in many shapes and sizes:

  • some are complex, multi-layered learning programs where we’ll be working with a client over several years;
  • some are small, simple and out the door in less than a week;
  • most fall somewhere in between.

While each team member has core responsibilities, everybody at 4Forward does a little bit of everything. Each of us needs to remain agile, flexible and eager to contribute. We work hard to make sure our clients receive high quality products on-time and on-budget. We share responsibility for our successes—and our setbacks.

This is a place where creativity, efficiency, initiative and independence are important. You’ll often be working independently, but you’ll never be alone. As part of our delivery team, your contributions will be essential. If you have any ideas on how to improve any aspect of our business, we’ll want you to share them – your opinions will be valued.

4Forward has completed several projects for the Canadian Tourism Human Resource Council (CTHRC), including instructor guides, self-directed workbooks, website “web quests,” orientation kits for employment counselors, and a guidebook called the Canadian Academy for Travel & Tourism (CATT) Succession Guide for career program staff at secondary schools. These projects have included learning blueprints, content capture (review and organization of printed and online materials, SME interviews, and focus groups), development of instructional and assessment strategies, and creative content development. The work produced in these projects is now being used by thousands of students in industry and at colleges in all regions of Canada."
