Apply to Canva

At Canva we work to make a significant positive impact on society. Our mission is to democratise design and empower creation.

Since launching in April 2013 we have grown exponentially, and the journey has only just begun. Join Canva, and be part of this adventure. We are one of the world’s fastest growing startups. Your colleagues, like you, will be the top of the industry. It is important to us that we create a workplace that you love coming to.

We are looking for a facilitator of outcomes who can partner with two of our senior leaders to alleviate operational and administrative inefficiencies within their groups, proactively look for ways to improve how we work and to help manage team communications and forums.

If you like putting out fires while remaining calm and flexible in the face of ever-changing priorities and needs, then this is the role for you.  Better yet; you can predict where those fires might arise and get to them first.

The Administrative Business Partner role is new to Canva so you will have a fantastic opportunity to help define the success metrics and goals of the function whilst partnering with two different group  or specialty leads allowing them to spend more focused time on scaling Canva and building brilliant products for our customers.

You'll be responsible for handling multiple calendars including resolving overlapping commitments and protecting time for priorities, as well as helping to drive and facilitate key meetings.
We move fast at Canva, and this role will certainly keep you on your toes!
