SOQS Announces Two Job Postings

December 2, 2014 at 2:58 pm Leave a comment

Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show is hiring two positions:

SOQS is seeking a full-time, year round Assistant Director who will primarily focus on logistical management to produce the annual Quilt Show and related events.

The world’s largest outdoor quilt show includes a week of complex and multi-layered events. More than 500 long-time and experienced volunteers provide labor in more than 800 different volunteer job roles.

The Assistant Director works  in partnership with the Executive Director and the seasonal staff and experienced volunteers  to provide leadership and comprehensive logistical management for the successful production of  events. Primary activities involve working directly with community and business partners; outreach, publicity, and promotion; program and event management (logistics and operations); and working with long-time, knowledgeable volunteer teams.  These projects include collaborations among fiber artists, quilters (locally, regionally, and nationally) and culture tourism and community partners in Central Oregon.

The prime candidate will have experience producing large, complex events demonstrating daily leadership, strategic thinking, and experience implementing multiple projects simultaneously.  Digital experience with online community engagement and social media would be beneficial to someone stepping into this role.

The SOQS event cycle means that the role has high peaks and shallow troughs of workload throughout the year. The Assistant Director is expected to manage their time effectively to accommodate the increases in demand.

Delivery of a superb creative and artistically beautiful Quilt Show resulting in a festival that is a success for the organization, as well as the community that benefits from the large cultural tourism impact of the show, is a huge reward for the right person in this role.

Compensation, schedule and work site details will be negotiated with finalist candidates.
