Position: National Program Director
Location: Toronto preferred but will consider virtual
Parkbus is Canada's bus to the great outdoors, connecting major cities to National and Provincial Parks. We run numerous for-profit routes that help power our non-profit programs, such as ActiveDays (building outdoor communities through group day trips), NatureLink (free and subsidized trips for new Canadians) and Free Shuttles Programs.
We are looking for an entrepreneurial and creative leader who is passionate about connecting people to the outdoors and has a unique combination of skills for the office as well as the trail. If you are looking to make a positive difference for thousands of people across the country, wear different hats, and even spend time on the trail while working, this may be your perfect job! You will connect to the leaders of Canada's outdoor community and step behind the scenes in the most interesting places in the country.
As an ideal candidate, you are entrepreneurial and will be able to design programs that help connect more people to nature and that are financially sound. You will create marketing and communications campaigns, and help Parkbus restart all programs in full force as the pandemic restrictions ease. As a big-picture thinker, you will have a profound effect on our organization, and will be able to leave a positive mark on the experiences of thousands of people across the country. You will be working directly with all stakeholders, including other Parkbus team members, park agencies, non-profits, bus operators and Parkbus riders.
At the same time, you will enjoy spending the time outdoors by joining some of the local group trips along with the rest of the team, to experience the programs first hand and stay connected to the program and its participants.
