Position: Vancouver Community Leader
Organization: Mealshare
Location: Vancouver, BC

Mealshare exists because some children don’t have enough to eat, and we’re not okay with that. We’re a non-profit social enterprise that makes it easy for people to provide meals to youth in need. Just buy a Mealshare item at any of our partner restaurants, and you’re providing one meal to a youth in need! We’re adding to our team of passionate change makers.

History Lesson:

Mealshare launched in the summer of 2013 with four partner restaurants in Alberta. Since then, we’ve grown to 1200+ restaurants in 400+ communities across Canada. We’re a tight-knit team that works collaboratively and efficiently to change the world.

A day in the life of a Community Leader:

With support from your Community Leader Coach, you’ll manage Mealshare operations in Vancouver and hustle to:

  • Pitch and sell to prospective partner restaurants via emails, drop-ins, networking and cold calls (this is a big part of the role, so if this doesn’t sound exciting, then this isn’t the perfect job for you)
  • Build and maintain meaningful relationships with our partner restaurants
  • Create and manage relationships with ~100 locations for our flagship partner, A&W
  • Help cultivate Mealshare’s social media presence
  • Secure general support and funding from the community
  • Manage relations with our partner charities

What it takes:

You’ll be responsible for Mealshare’s operations in Vancouver. You’ll need a heart for helping people and a head for getting stuff done. We are looking for someone upbeat, friendly and personable with 3+ years of relevant experience. Our ideal candidate is:

  • Passionate about changing the world with their career
  • Extroverted; a natural friend maker/people person
  • Trustworthy and genuine
  • Organized and efficient
  • Hard-working with a hunger to exceed expectations
  • A cooperative team player who goes the extra mile
  • Confident and persistent
  • Flexible with hours & workplace
  • A proven self-motivated, responsible professional

In the video, tell us about yourself, what excites you about this position and why you’re the perfect candidate. Pro-tip: have a friend test your video link prior to sending. We’ll be accepting applications until July 4th, and we hope to have you start in early September.
