Job Posting: Executive Director — deadline extended

The Vancouver Book and Magazine Fair (Word Vancouver) is seeking an Executive Director to provide visionary leadership in the internal operations of the organization to enable strong, diverse, inclusive, accessible, well-resourced, and sustainable programming for the community we serve.

The Executive Director is responsible for the effective day-to-day administration of Word Vancouver as well as Festival production. This is a rare opportunity for an individual or team to develop and mold their unique vision. Proposals will be accepted both from individuals and from teams.

While the position is described as full-time, year-round, we recognize that there are periods of chaos as well as lull periods with an annual festival. We are seeking an individual or team that will be able to adapt to this timeline, while being welcome to also pursue other endeavours. 

The deadline has been extended until Friday, May 11.
