Position: Weekend Front of House Sales Animator
Location: Toronto, Ontario (St. Clair W. near Dufferin)
We are seeking an enthusiastic and experienced individual to join the ChocoSol team as Front of House Sales Animator for our retail boutique & chocolate café. This is a part-time contract position until the end of December 31, 2019, with the potential for developing into a longer-term position.
ChocoSol is a Learning Community Social Enterprise that makes stone-ground dark chocolate, also known as the ‘food of the gods’, using cacao sourced directly from farmers in Mexico, Dominican Republic, Guatemala, and Ecuador. We process our delicious and nutritious bean-to-bar chocolate at our St Clair Avenue West facility and host many in-house culinary events, workshops, and tours. You can also find us peddling chocolate at 7+ weekly farmers markets and at a few dozen external community events & trade shows every year.
Our organization has been building and evolving for over 15 years in Toronto, and we are now looking to expand and strengthen our dynamic sales team with this hire.
The successful candidate is an individual who is passionate about ecology, sustainability, and supporting local food systems. The physical space of the storefront is a crucial connection point between the various areas of ChocoSol (production, wholesale, retail, markets, maintenance, etc.) so the individual must be able to work effectively in a team environment that requires communication and supporting each other. The right candidate loves engaging with people and takes pride in maintaining a clean, organized, and welcoming space for everyone that comes through the area.
