Events & Communications Coordinator
White Rock BIA
Fraser Valley
White Rock
closes in 2 days (Tue, 18 Jan)
full time  •  $39 000 to $42 500 per year

About Us:

 

The White Rock Business Improvement Association represents and supports White Rock businesses through advocacy, beautification projects, event coordination, promotion & marketing, and economic development. 

 

About the Role:

 

Are you passionate about organizing fun community events?  Do you enjoy creating engaging communication pieces?  Do you thrive in a dynamic work environment? 

 

We’re looking for a talented, organized, and detail-oriented Events & Communications Coordinator to support the wonderful local businesses in White Rock.  We’re looking for someone who wants to create a vibrant community and is thrilled to work with people from all walks of life. 

 

We’re a small organization and everyone wears many hats, so you need to be flexible and organized.  We prefer to work with people who are patient, kind, and put community at the heart of their work. 

 

Strong event planning and communication skills are a must.  Bonus points if you love the Oxford comma (or have a good argument why you don’t). 

 

Responsibilities:

 

  • Develop new events to attract people to White Rock and help coordinate ongoing and signature events of the White Rock BIA, such as the Summer Concerts series, the White Rock Craft Beer Festival, and Vitality: Health & Wellness Expo;
  • Grow and engage our audiences through effective day-to-day management of digital communication channels;
  • Create content calendars that leverage each channel’s strengths to support the long-term goals of the White Rock BIA;
  • Design promotional campaigns to support our members;
  • Discover new and more efficient ways to communicate with our members, stakeholders, and the general public;
  • Work with the ED to draft media releases and traditional advertising campaigns;
  • Attend board meetings, take minutes, and provide additional support to board committees as needed;
  • Provide administrative and office support;
  • Other duties as required.

 

Qualifications:

 

  • Passionate about community and the wonderful businesses in White Rock;
  • Event planning experience for events of all sizes;
  • Excellent communication skills, with an ability to effectively craft communication pieces across different mediums;
  • Tech-savvy with a strong background in digital and social media communications- including e-newsletters, website blogs, Facebook, and Instagram;
  • Post-secondary education, ideally a post-secondary degree (particularly but not necessarily in English, Communications, or Marketing);
  • Graphic design skills, including experience with the Adobe Creative Suite, and experience is a definite asset but not a necessity;
  • Drivers’ License and access to a vehicle are an asset but not a necessity.

 

This is a full-time (35 hrs per week) position that primarily will work Monday to Friday 9 am to 5 pm (with one hour unpaid lunch).  Some evenings and weekends are required to support events.  Time off in-lieu will be provided should additional work hours be required- we take the work/life balance seriously here. 

 

Due to COVID, currently the successful applicant will work out of their home, with access to the office negotiable.  However, once it’s safe to do so, the position will work in our office in White Rock. 

 

Salary: $39 000 to $42 500 per year with 3 weeks paid vacation and additional time off over the Christmas season.
