Community Outreach Maestro
Sirene Chocolate is a bean-to-bar chocolate maker in Victoria, BC. We make our chocolate ourselves, directly from cocoa beans we carefully source from the farms we like the ethics of, and who are growing great flavoured beans. It is important to us that we know who is growing our beans and what their processes are. We want to make life better: for the farmer, the consumer and for our own employees. We work hard to make some of the best chocolate in the world, and now we’re looking for a Community Outreach Maestro to lead the effort of getting the word out about the chocolate we make.
About the Job
Sirene was founded in 2013, has been winning International awards since 2015, and growing organically through word of mouth since then. We are now looking to hire a part time sales and marketing person who will spread the word about what Sirene is doing via social media channels, private tastings, farmers’ markets and special events. You will find and manage these tasting events including weekend markets, find corporate gifts clients, manage all social media accounts for the company, work with local restaurants, bars, breweries and distilleries, and generally be the public face of Sirene in Victoria. You will work offsite, not at the factory, though you will be closely aligned with the chocolate making process, flavour development, and release of bars. The position is planned for 20 hours per week, but being a young and growing company, those time demands could grow based on performance.
You are comfortable making decisions on your own, without needing oversight for each decision. You do not need someone to motivate you, you know how to keep moving even when there is no immediate deadline. You’re known for your people skills, friendliness and positive, can-do attitude. You are excited to work closely with a small team and grow a small, ethics driven company.
To apply, please send your resume and a cover letter explaining about you and why you’re interested in this position to info (at) sirenechocolate.com
