July 11, 2015 Social Ride: John D Rockefeller's Birthday in Cleveland
Map of points of interest (on and off our route) is here. Check back here and there for updates during the week.
Tim Donovan, Executive Director of the Ohio Canal Partners will be our guest expert, with a special expert invited from beyond and appearing at noon, so this month we will plan to return to OCBC at 12:15 rather than noon.
Bike Cleveland will be represented as usual, to discuss the towpath trail and other infrastructure issues.
The Ohio City Bicycle Co-op will be adding to our current staff of three (a Director, Volunteer Cordinator, and one full-time mechanic) by hiring an employee to assume responsibility for basic office duties and to assist with retail sales duties.
This person will initially be responsible for:
- maintaining communication with the public through website updates, social media, email, phone and mail replies;
- posting and maintaining schedules of classes, programs and events;
- routine bookkeeping, inventory, and point of sale duties.
This position will average 40 hrs/week, with flextime for holidays, and
full health coverage. The starting salary is $22,000. This is expected
to be a permanent position. Hours are flexible, but our posted Retail and Apprentice times will usually be required.
Familiarity with Quickbooks, or significant experience with similar accounting and Point Of Sale software is needed; as well as comfort with database and content managements systems (we currently use SQL, Joomla, and Drupal) and Google products. Good written and personal communications is necessary, and retail experience would be useful. Ability to relate respectfully with volunteers and clients from all backgrounds is essential. Spanish language skills are a plus, as is prior experience as a member or volunteer at OCBC or another community bicycle program.
This position offers vast growth potential: other duties that will be added once the chosen candidate is comfortable with the above basic tasks will, depending on the individual's skills, include assisting with at least a couple of the following:
- interaction with sponsors and corporate clients and partner organizations;
- riding and/or repair instruction and curriculum development;
- program and product research and development;
- database design and programming;
- Ebay or other online sales;
- volunteer coordination;
- bicycle mechanics;
- grant writing;
Energetic, committed individuals with good organization skills and a strong work ethic, able to prioritize tasks in a fast-changing environment with calm and good humor will find OCBC to be a fun and rewarding place to work. All applications will be considered; OCBC is committed to diversity in our staff as in our clientele -- see our non-discrimination policy here.
Resumes with applicable experience and at least two references should be attached to an email cover letter with "APPLICATION" in the subject, and sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. This position will be open until filled. All applications will be acknowledged within 48 hours, and all candidates will be notified of our hiring decision when completed.
