Are you interested in a barter opportunity that will give you an amazing opportunity to work in Vancouver’s coolest co-working space and to network with over 90 businesses and non-profits working in social and environmental sustainability? If yes, we have an amazing opportunity for you.

The HiVE Vancouver (www.hivevancouver.com) has an on-going Desk Bee Exchange Program – a barter exchange program where in exchange for 2x 4.5 hour shifts per week as a community greeter and receptionist in our co-working space, we’ll give you a HiVE Unlimited package (24/7 access to the space – worth $350/month) and we’ll also give you one $10 lunch voucher or money every week.

Your duties will consist of:

  • Giving tours of the space
  • Greeting visitors
  • Answering general phone/e-mail inquiries
  • Onboarding new members
  • Receiving debit payments from customers
  • Collecting the mail/receiving courier packages
  • Helping organize social events for the 90+ businesses in the HiVE

It’s a very easy role and you get the opportunity to meet amazing people every day. We’re looking for a 3 month commitment. You can schedule your shifts when it is convenient to you and use the space for your own projects/studies whenever you’re not working. Every week, we’ll give you a $10 voucher for one of many local amazing eateries.

If you’re interested in this opportunity, Margarete at margarete [at] hivevancouver [dot] com, on or before July 31st 2014. Note: We area a non-profit and this is not a volunteer opportunity – it’s a barter exchange. Your time in exchange for our services and lunch.
