Hi all! Please see the below posting for our Salt Lake director, to expand our capacity both in Salt Lake and on an organizational level. This is a crucial hire, obviously second-most critical behind our executive director role. If properly selected, trained, and enabled this person will allow us to evolve our education programs, prepare us for expansion of our volunteer and open shop hours as more space becomes available, and improve our mechanic recruitment and training methods to meet the overwhelming supply and demand we face. Further, they will free me up to raise more funds, pursue purchasing the Salt Lake building, and enable our current and prospective satellite locations around Utah.
I encourage everyone with suitable experience in the wider bike collective world to consider applying. This person will bring their skills and experiences to the table and will work together with our staff and volunteers to get a huge job done. You may not be perfect for the job, but neither was I, and through amazing support and a great crew of staff and volunteers we've been able to do a ton over the past two years despite my shortcomings. So definitely apply if you're interested.
Please spread the word and work on recruiting suitable candidates from your networks. If possible I need you to do more than a facebook post. Personally approach individual people who'd be a great fit and would grow with the Collective. If you find our next Salt Lake director, it'd be a huge contribution to our organization specifically. It will also allow us to provide a dynamic and strengthening job to one more person in the wider bike collective world so we can all get better at empowering people through bikes. http://www.bicyclecollective.org/locations-a-hours/salt-lake-city/item/428-n... http://www.google.com/url?q=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.bicyclecollective.org%2Flocations-a-hours%2Fsalt-lake-city%2Fitem%2F428-now-hiring-director-salt-lake-location&sa=D&sntz=1&usg=AFQjCNFyiiZrUnQ8VUzF5qjzXgi2BRNoHg
For more about our collective, please peruse our website, or look over this overview of 2014:
*-We had 2837 bikes donated to the SLC shop alone, up from 1800 in 2013.*
*-We gave away 1443 bikes through our Goodwill programs.*
*-414 kids graduated from Earn-A-Bike, each with their own bike, lights, locks, helmet, and patch kit. *
*- Trips for Kids took a record 316 kids on their first mountain bike rides. For the first time we were able to take each Earn-A-Bike student on an enabling graduation ride, over doubling our Trips for Kids participants to 730.*
*-Due to the most successful (Utah) Bike Prom ever, we were able to expand operations at the SLC shop this summer to being open longer hours and 7 days a week, with 5 open shop days. This expansion was sustainable and we plan to do the same next year.*
