Club Coordinator needed


FNSC is looking to hire a Club Coordinator to help us manage and improve our organization as one of the largest Nordic clubs in Canada. This is a new position in the club that for the right person we envisage developing into a general manager role. 

The Coordinator will work with coaches, directors (and their sub-committees) plus  volunteers to organize our programs, camps and athlete exchanges, using Zone4 as appropriate.  As a contact person for our members, the coordinator will be expected to respond to questions from club members and volunteers about programs, after obtaining appropriate input from coaches and the executive, and over time improve our communications with all club users. The Coordinator will, under supervision of the executive, prepare grant and funding applications for the Club, and manage all aspects of the internal operations of the club, including HR, financial management, equipment inventory, and insurance. The Coordinator will support the executive in its functioning as well as the volunteer committees supporting the executive.  FNSC has led the establishment of Nordic facilities at Confederation Golf Course, but although the Coordinator will be organizing our programs that run there, the position will not be involved in the operations or management of the facility itself.   

The Coordinator will need to work with and develop effective working relationships with the FNSC executive, committee members, coaches, volunteers, athletes and FNSC members.  The Coordinator will need to work with the executive to prioritize and execute medium and longer term capacity building projects in the Club while at the same time ensuring the effective operation of the Club’s programs.
