Job Notice: Part-time Club Manager, Nakkertok Nordic

    September 15, 2017

    Nakkertok Nordic is Canada’s largest cross country ski club, with over 1500 members and a full range
    of recreational and competitive skiing programs. Our skiing facility includes 80km of groomed trails in
    Cantley, Quebec, and now includes a $250k snow making operation made possible by Kraft Heinz
    Project Play. Nakkertok is a vibrant, volunteer-based club that is 40 years in the making. We have
    incredible volunteers who contribute significant time and energy into every aspect of our club – through
    coaching, racing events, trails and facilities and an endless list of other remarkable contributions. We
    are now a large, complex organization and The Board of Directors is seeking a Club Manager to further
    support the coherent and integrated management of club-wide opportunities and issues.

    The Club Manager will be uniquely positioned to focus on club-wide business in a way that is not
    possible for even our most dedicated volunteers. That focus will enable the Manager to identify
    opportunities, to connect eager contributors and further strengthen our club community. We designed
    this role to be both ‘manager’ and ‘mobilizer’. With the hands-on leadership style that has created
    Nakkertok, we believe the Club Manager will create a multiplier effect – strengthening and optimizing
    the volunteer foundation upon which the club has been built. The job description below outlines the key
    responsibilities of the Club Manager and the ways in which we believe this new role will advance the
    strength and success of our club.

    • passionate leadership style
