More Info: Click here

Over the last one year, the utilization of the Waverly Grand Mosque has increased significantly. With so many recurring sports activities, classes, halaqas, dinners, events, meetings etc., the efforts required to keep the mosque clean has doubled. The current caretaker works only 20 hours a week. Accordingly, the MIA EC has decided to hire another part-time caretaker in order to fully meet all the cleaning and maintenance requirements of the mosque. Please find attached the Job posting details. All interested are encouraged to apply.
