Position: Central / North Land Matcher
Organization: Young Agrarians
Location: Central & Northern BC
Compensation: $30/hour, 35 hours/week
Young Agrarians is hiring a Land Matcher for the Central & Northern B.C. region! Are you a connector? An intuitive networker? That person in your friend group who always has the dirt on hot jobs and cool apartments? Do complete strangers tell you their life story at the drop of a hat? Did you once set up your friends from college, and now they’ve got kids and you gave a speech at their wedding and they send you a thank you card every year?
Young Agrarians needs someone with that magic matchmaking quality to connect farmers seeking land with farmland owners who have land to lease. If you’ve got equal parts people skills, passion for local food systems, and a desire to spend hours (yes, hours – please love admin, regulations and leases!) poring over spreadsheets and the B.C. Land Title Act, we’d love to hear from you!
Young Agrarians is on the hunt for a talented communicator and project manager who understands the agricultural landscape to provide land access “extension services” as the Central/North Land Matcher through the B.C. Land Matching Program. This position will work to facilitate access to land for new farm businesses by screening farmland opportunities and farmers ready to start farm businesses, facilitating match making, and developing legal contracts between parties, as well as providing remote technical assistance for the development of leases, in the region. The BCLMP program focuses on relationship development and the creation of secure leases, ensuring that both parties have thought through risks and opportunities as best possible before beginning an arrangement.
Young Agrarians embraces diversity, and we are excited about building a team that represents a variety of backgrounds, perspectives, and skills.
