Part-time (~25 hours per week) 6 month contract
We are currently seeking an exceptional candidate to fulfill the role of General Manager and further enhance our non-profit co-operative.
Who We Are
Terminal City Glass Co-op (TCGC) was founded in February 2012 as Canada’s first and only non-profit, co-operative glass arts facility.
Our mandate is to provide access to high-quality glassmaking equipment and resources for the artistic development of emerging and established artists; to offer an educational glass program for the public in efforts to encourage awareness of glass as an art medium; to engage the community through events that promote glass as an art form.
We offer classes in glassblowing, flameworking, beadmaking, and sandblasting for ages 16+, and encourage our students to further their exploration of glass as form of creative expression.
Artists work independently out of our studio on their own individual projects and businesses. We support all kinds of community-building activities in the studio including slide shows, social events, member meet-ups, fundraisers and more.
Who You Are
You are passionate about leadership and you seek out any chance you get to inspire and motivate your team. You have expertise managing artists and you understand the Non-profit sector and Co-operative business model. You are excited to create a respectful, inclusive and supportive space where glass artists of a wide variety of skillsets and backgrounds can explore glass as a medium.
You are building a career that lets you flex some strong entrepreneurial muscle, and you know that what you do makes a difference. You have an inherent desire to engage with members, create clarity through communications and navigate the challenges of leading a small business through COVID recovery.
Reporting to the Chair of the Board of Directors, the General Manager leads the Co-operative in achieving our strategic priorities through developing and executing on an operational plan while managing within a non-profit budget.
The ideal candidate will have experience leading a team and managing the daily operation of the business.
