Transportation and Facilities Coordinator
The Transportation and Facilities Coordinator will be responsible for market set up, safety monitoring, market logistics, and tear down for those Farmers Markets with street closures that require additional equipment and staffing. Currently, these shifts would take place Wednesdays through Saturdays. The University District Farmers Market is year-round, but other markets are seasonal so weekly work hours will be 15-20 hours during May and October, 25-30 hours during June-September, and 10-15 hours during the other months. The position has the potential to expand according to the abilities of the candidate, and the addition of year round Sunday market responsibilities as well.
The ideal candidate will have experience in driving a large cargo van, be hearty (walking, lifting, carrying) in all weather, have excellent communication skills for working with our team and with the public, and be able to prevent and appropriately react to safety issues. Passionate interest in local agriculture and Farmers Markets is a big plus!
