About ReForest London
ReForest London (RFL) is a small but mighty non-profit organization with a vision to see our community thriving in a healthy urban forest. We work to enhance environmental and human health in the Forest City by inspiring, educating, and empowering Londoners to plant and care for trees and to be part of a sustainability-focused future for our community.
Since our founding in 2005, we have grown to become London’s largest environmental not-for-profit organization. Powered by passionate staff and volunteers, ReForest London plants, cares for, and gives away thousands of trees each year. Along with the City of London, we are a founding partner of London’s Million Tree Challenge. We are also actively developing London’s first environment and sustainability centre, the Westminster Ponds Centre. Our organization is full of energetic, passionate individuals seeking to make a difference for the environment, and who are accountable for outcomes but enjoy a lot of freedom in how to achieve them.
Location: London, Ontario (based in-office with flexible remote work)
Reporting to the Executive Director, the Operations Manager leads the work to deliver ReForest London’s multiple programs to make Londoner greener, healthier and more sustainable. Our programs team is currently a team of four, delivering activities like tree planting, tree giveaways, schoolyard planting and hands-on seedling growing, tree seed collection and growing, and community sustainability.
Managing and coaching the program team includes: ensuring program targets and grant deliverables are achieved by deadlines; program budgets are built and followed; and program data is accurately collected and reported. The Operations Manager also plays a primary role in new program development to respond to community needs and other opportunities.
This opportunity is perfect for you if you have experience in managing and supporting people, and ensuring deliverables are met. Some environmental or non-profit experience is naturally desirable but if you bring the right people and management skills to the table, you can learn our business and our sector. Every day we work to enhance our local environment and make our community a healthier place to live.
