Energizing working environment.
Assistant Program Manager (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 9 December 2014
In my last year with the Canucks I co-managed a team of 15 part time coordinators and personally oversaw the communication and management of over 1000 volunteers.
In my 5 years with the Canucks I was able to develop my administrative and leadership skills by developing volunteer management processes and building relationships with staff and volunteers.
Because of the nature of the position, most of my work and time was self managed. I created personal and project goals each season and was very successful in achieving them.
The most challenging aspect of this role was dealing with large numbers of individual personalities in a high paced, time sensitive environment. However, being the nature of the sports and entertainment industry, quick and effective problem solving was key to success.
The most enjoyable parts of the position were building relationships with staff and volunteers, reaching huge financial targets and making a difference in the lives of children throughout BC.
Excellent work environment.
