I’m excited to share that we’re once again growing our team!
We’re in the final stages of taking over operations of the Downtown Eastside Street Market, and are looking to hire a Market Manager to oversee this new program.
The DTES Street Market has been operating since 2012 in order to provide safe, low-barrier vending and income generation opportunities for residents of the DTES. The Market is City-funded and supported by the City of Vancouver’s Community Economic Development Strategy and DTES Plan.
After consultation with the binners in our membership, we decided that operating the Street Market would be an exciting opportunity to further our mission to improving economic opportunities for binners and those working in the informal economy.
The Market Manager will be responsible for overseeing all market operations, including scheduling peer workers, meeting regularly with both vendors and peers, and administrative duties like reconciling cash and tracking market metrics.
This is a great opportunity for someone with experience working with marginalized populations, who is looking to expand their leadership skills through direct impact with the community. This is a full-time position with a salary range of $55,000-$60,000.
