Calling all social-impact loving, collaborative-minded, and organization mavens! Do you have some extra time on your hands? Are you interested in a barter exchange that will give you the opportunity to join Vancouver’s growing social impact community? Then read on!
You: A freelancer, entrepreneur, and/or a creative individual who has some free time on your hands. Maybe you are new to Vancouver, or perhaps you’re a long time resident who’s looking for a change. It’s possible that you’ve just finished some much needed soul-searching. In any case, you’ve decided that you want to connect your work to your values, and get more in touch with the social change space in Vancouver.
Us: A kick-ass community of over 150 individuals and organizations within the social entrepreneurship, sustainability, tech, and creative sectors all working to make the world a better place. Our mission is to support and amplify the social impact space in Vancouver; we do this by mixing one part shared-space with one part collaboration and a dash of love.
If this sounds like a match made in heaven, then we want YOU for our Desk Bee Exchange Program (DBEP)!
The HiVE (www.hivevancouver.com) has an on-going Desk Bee Exchange Program – a barter exchange program where in exchange for one weekly and one bi-weekly 4.5 hour shift as a community animator 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 $10 for lunch every week.
Your duties will consist of:
- Giving tours of the space
- Greeting visitors
- Answering general phone/e-mail inquiries
- Welcoming new members
- Receiving debit and credit card payments from customers
- Collecting the mail/receiving courier packages
- Helping organize social events for the 90+ businesses in the HiVE
- Taking out the garbage
- Making sure the kitchen and common areas are tidy
- Booking meeting rooms
We’re looking for two people who are available on Wednesdays and Fridays starting December 3, and are able to make a 3 month commitment.
If you’re interested in this opportunity, please email Melissa at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible. Also, let us know how you found out about the program!
The HiVE Vancouver is a non-profit society, and this is not a volunteer opportunity – it’s a barter exchange where you give your time in exchange for our services and lunch.
