Position: Market Administrator
Organization: Ottawa Farmers' Market
Location: Ottawa, Ontario
The Ottawa Farmers’ Market is seeking a talented and motivated person with not-for-profit experience to join our team!
This contract position will be to cover a parental leave, but as we grow our team and staff structure, the right candidate could be eligible to continue in a similar full-time permanent position with the OFM.
Start date: August 9, 2021
End date: December 31, 2022
Hours: Full time, temporary position at ~35-40 hours per week. Mostly weekday work, except for Sunday market days from May – December, and monthly meetings in the evening. Some additional weekday/evening meetings may also be required.
Compensation: $21.50 - $23.00 per hour
Reports to: OFM Chair of the Board of Directors
While most work will be conducted from home, there are also on-site market days every Sunday at Lansdowne Park from May to December.
The ideal candidate will have experience working in a not-for-profit setting, working closely with a Board of Directors and with a small team of staff. We are looking for a self-starter capable of working from home during the week, delivering work on short timelines, and being accountable for the work they are doing. We are looking for someone with keen attention to detail and strong communications skills, both verbal and written. Previous experience working with a farmers’ market, or a similar not-for-profit model, is preferred.
While some duties are carried out on a weekly or monthly basis, the type of work will generally change over the course of a market season as some tasks are specific to the time of year based on the OFM’s annual calendar.
Typical duties include, but are not limited to, the following:
Board of Directors and administrative duties
Annual General Meeting
Administer Summer Markets
Send cover letter and resume to email@example.com by Monday, August 2, 2021.
