Position Title: Special Events Coordinator (SEC) Reports To: Bout and Facilities Manager
FLSA Status: Non-Exempt Employment Status: Part time, will grow over time
The Rose City Rollers, now in our 15th season, are expanding our reach into the Portland Community to promote roller skating, inclusive team-oriented community, and FUN. The dynamic individual who becomes the Special Events Coordinator will oversee community outreach that is based out of RCR’s Hangar at Oaks Park and in the Portland community. This is a position that requires a person who can dream big and articulate that vision, while also being able to execute down to the small details. You must be creative at selling an event to interested groups, excel at developing processes utilizing existing systems, and able to manage a budget.
For events at our Hangar, the Special Events Coordinator will seek out individuals and businesses to hold private skate parties, team bonding events, and scrimmage viewing parties. Once booked, you’ll coordinate all aspects of the events in cooperation with volunteer and paid staff.
Thanks to a generous grant from Oregon Community Foundation, the Special Events Coordinator will work with the RCR Executive Director to launch Skate Truck this spring, and will oversee three primary activities: school programs, private parties and park parties. School programming will begin as weekly after-school skating at select Portland schools in collaboration with Active Children Portland. Private parties will include skating events at individual homes or businesses, which the Special Events Coordinator will promote, book and oversee. The park events will focus on community outreach, working with Portland Parks to book sites, rent out skates, provide music, and promote events. These events will also provide an opportunity to market our private parties.
The goals of the Special Events Coordinator will be tied to the success of building out these new revenue streams. We expect that as this position successfully grows these events, the position will grow in title and time.
Duties and Responsibilities:
Work Schedule: This role is 20hrs/week to start and is expected to grow as this revenue stream develops. Work often happens on weekends and evenings. Outside of activities and meetings, work is done from a home office M-F, 10-3. Mandatory staff co-working at SE office location Tuesdays 10-4.
Compensation: $19/hr. Benefits include paid vacation, holiday pay, sick time, a flexible schedule, a monthly tech stipend and participation in Oregon Saves retirement savings program. This position is expected to grow as these revenue streams are developed.
