CHN Interviewers are responsible for ensuring the overall success of the program in their community, by contributing to the development of a vibrant, dynamic host network. Interviewers conduct one of the most important aspects of our work: recruiting and screening host families. As an organization, our reputation depends on the quality of our hosts.

- excellent English and French communication skills,
- extensive involvement in your local community,

This is a part-time position, with an expectation that the Interviewer will be available to conduct an average of 5 interviews per week. Each interview, including data entry and follow-up, should take about 2-3 hours for experienced interviewers (not including travel time). Interviewers are not reimbursed separately for gas or mileage on their vehicles.
Successful candidates will be able to demonstrate personal integrity and transparent motives consistent with CHN's vision and mission. They will have a ready acceptance of their personal and corporate accountability for stewardship of the common good and perseverance to achieve satisfactory outcomes.
