The Programs Coordinator books and coordinates the rentals, programs, and yoga classes that are the lifeblood of our operation. Broadly speaking, the position involves engaging new teachers and presenters, securing contracts, and liaising with other coordinators at the Centre to ensure that agreements with our clients and guests are fulfilled. The Programs Coordinator also guides our ongoing marketing on social media and elsewhere, and serves as the primary point of contact for public inquiry. The role reports to the Senior Manager but works in concert with the Operations, Housekeeping, Maintenance Coordinators and other staff involved in programs and events to ensure events run smoothly. This position receives some assistance from an office volunteer for clerical and administrative tasks. People with an ability to communicate clearly, a keen eye for detail, and a friendly and caring personality will do best in the role.
The position requires a commitment of 28 hours per week of work, including a few hours of weekly communal cleanup shifts. During the first 10 weeks of your time here, we also ask for 7 hours per week of participation in community activities and meetings, as well as classes on yoga theory and practice. This helps new staff to connect to the aims of the Centre and the community in a deeper way. (Some of this may not be necessary for those who’ve already spent time at the Centre) Please see below for further details about the job.
