Who we are:
Established in 1977, Windsure is a family-run watersports business, located at beautiful Jericho Beach in West Point Grey, Vancouver. Today, we work to share our love of three quintessential Vancouver watersports: Windsurfing, Stand-Up Paddleboarding, and Skimboarding.
Regardless of experience, age, ability, or learning goals, Windsure has a program designed for anyone looking to get out on the water. Through rentals, lessons, group programs, and youth camps, the team at Windsure is dedicated to creating an experience for as many watersport-seekers as possible! We are proud to be a part of the Vancouver watersports community and we hope to continue to help it grow by sharing our love of the water with our fellow Vancouverites. Join our tight-knit team of passionate, active people in one of the most beautiful work environments that our planet has to offer.
Our values of Community, Sustainability, Activity and Safety drive all that we do. What do these values mean to you?
What you’ll do:
With such a strong and increasing demand for outdoor activities, Windsure is growing! We’re seeking a values-based leader with a passion for the outdoors and the water to help us level up operations. As General Manager, you will be responsible for the day-to-day operations, performance and support of our programs and staff. You will directly manage the Beach Hut Supervisors and Summer Camps Supervisor as well as be a resource to the broader staff. You will report directly to the owner and work with them on high-level strategy and growth initiatives for the business. Our goal as a team is to ensure that each customer embarking on a windsurfing, skimboarding or stand-up paddling adventure has the most fun and safe experience before, on, and off the water.
As a seasonal business, this role has significant built-in flexibility, including part-time hours and extended time away from work during the offseason. March start date is preferred in order to lead hiring initiatives; however, hours in March can either be full-time or part-time, with full time beginning in April.
