Opportunity Description:

Tech Mates provide one-on-one hands-on tech support to people with sight loss learning how to use their smart devices in their home or at the CNIB Office. This may include the initial set up of smart phones and teaching basic functions, mainstream apps (Facebook, etc.) and a few sight loss-specific apps (Seeing AI, etc.). Much of what Tech Mates help with is relatively simple (setting up emails, basic computer skills, etc.) Once You’re Onboarded: To begin this role, you will first meet with the CNIB Tech Lead in Nova Scotia and go over some best practices for assisting someone with sight loss and on the use of some sight loss specific functions and apps. You will then be added to the Tech Mate team and will be emailed potential assignments as they come up within the area you cover; you’ll be able to accept or decline these assignments based on your availability, knowledge base, etc.
