The Opportunity

Ducks Unlimited Canada (DUC), one of Canada’s leading conservation organizations, is looking for a mature, outgoing, tenacious individual to join our team in Vancouver.

  • maintaining a strong relationship with the merchant
  • collecting bids and closing auctions
  • delivering prints to customers
  • prospecting, soliciting and securing new merchants to grow the program

A successful SBA representative will be curious, proactive, persistent and resilient; and will enjoy the freedom of managing your time and working independently, including developing your own route and schedule.

Previous experience in merchandising, sales or customer service, and a passion for conservation, the environment or the outdoors will make you the ideal candidate for this flexible and rewarding position.

Requirements

  • Strong communication, negotiation and listening  skills; excellent internal/external customer service
  • Self-motivated with a competitive spirit; driven by your own success
  • Detail-oriented, organized and able to prioritize workload
  • Able to work well independently and also as part of a team, with minimal direction
  • Proven ability to build rapport and maintain strong business relationships.
  • Natural ability to persuasively convey the mission of DUC
