Opportunity Type:
Job

Position: Operations Coordinator
Organization: Parkbus
Location: remote / Eastern Canada preferred due to time difference.
Hours: estimated 15-25 hours/week (see below)

Since 2010, Parkbus has helped thousands of Canadians access the great outdoors. Whether it’s a day trip, a family camping weekend, or a wilderness expedition, Parkbus will get you there!

Operations Coordinator

Do you love the great outdoors and helping others get there? Are you looking to join a small but dedicated team that can punch above its weight and where you will make a difference? Do you stay motivated and organized while working remotely? While our offices are in Toronto and Vancouver, we will consider team members living and working remotely from any city in Canada – with preference given to those in the East, as your days may sometime start as early as 7:00am EST.

As Parkbus works to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, we are looking for someone to help us take over communications and on-call operational duties, primarly during weekends when Parkbus operates multiple trips across the country. Some responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

Act as primary point of contact between third party bus operators, Parkbus volunteers, park agencies and Parkbus managerial team.
Liaise between on-board staff and bus operator dispatch prior to each run to make sure there are no last minute surprises and that everyone has the right information.
Coordinate all necessary pre departure information with volunteers.
Work with the managerial team to prepare a more comprehensive volunteer guideline for each destination, including checklists and any other related information that will be useful to our volunteers.
While operations is the main focus of this position, we would love to maximise your potential, and if you have other talents and ideas, the position can be adjusted to take that into account.

Time Requirement

Estimated at 15-25 hours per week, but may be more or less depending on the Parkbus schedule and time of season. Most on-call duties will be on operational days (primarily Fridays, weekends and holidays) during departure times (6:45am to 9am EST), scheduled pickup times in the park (afternoon) and estimated return times to the city (evening EST).

Who Are We Looking For?

A responsible, organized and punctual morning person
Great attention to detail
Problem solver with the ability to tackle and act quickly in stressful situations
Strong communication skills
