We Are Hiring: Sales Assistant

We are seeking a team-oriented, passionate and outgoing individual to work with the UBC Farm team and assist in the success of UBC Farm’s food cultivation and sales program.

The Sales Assistant works under the supervision of the Sales Manager and works collaboratively with UBC Farm staff to assist with the sale and tracking of agricultural products marketed through various direct sales channels (specifically the Tuesday Evening Markets, Wednesday Campus Markets, and Saturday Markets), and to assist with day-to-day harvest and processing (harvest, washing and packing) operations. The CSFS operates on a cost-recovery basis and farm product sales are a significant source of operating revenue. These sales activities and associated record keeping intrinsically form a part of the academic programming at the CSFS and substantially inform production decisions. Sales data collected by the Sales Assistant provides the raw material that allows the development of an academically diverse range of studies conducted by faculty, staff and students, research projects and agricultural production at the UBC Farm site.

This is a permanent full time position. The application deadline is April 18th, 2018.
