Tourism Jasper
Why we’re here: 
Tourism Jasper is the Destination Marketing Organization for Jasper and Jasper National Park. We’re a young, energetic, forward thinking team, who are charged with developing and executing on creative solutions to help our Shareholders (select hotels, restaurants, and activities in Jasper) increase revenue through sustainable visitation of targeted consumers to our awesome little town. 

Why you’re here: 
Reporting to the Director, Business Development, you support the team in business development, visitor experience and travel trade endeavours in order to deliver on the business plan. You ensure the team stays on track by providing administrative support, organizational best practices and business development coordination while building strong relationships with TJ’s Shareholders, team and clients.   

Your Values = Our Values:   
You inspire creativity in the team and enable them to achieve their goals by striving for excellence in everything you do. You inspire our Shareholders and partners with your helpful disposition and dedication to reaching our mutual goals.   

You promote respect in the organization by fostering your relationships with others. You are highly respected by the team and our Shareholders because of your ability to offer your skills and support with a smile.  

You embrace the spirit of collaboration by supporting each team member and you roll with the punches when thrown in to situations that may seem beyond your scope (like jumping in on an unexpected meeting to take notes or giving your opinion on some new marketing pieces). You continuously collaborate with Shareholders and partners to understand the best fit for how their needs can be met.

Accountability is ingrained in you. Because of your careful attention to detail, being able to answer for your words and actions based on this insight is a no-brainer. You are results driven and have no problem being held accountable for all the great work you do.   

You show your high level of integrity by being a trusted teammate and partner. Your positive nature makes it easy for you to embrace the concept of integrity by always striving to do the right thing, even when no-one is looking. 

This is you:   
  • You’re a communicator. You are thoughtful about what you say and how you say it (you get pumped by a perfectly worded email!) and you’re often told you’re a great listener.
  • Files and folders and spreadsheets...Oh my! You may be a document junkie. You love to create work plans for your projects and recording your work into a spreadsheet just makes it easier for you next time you have to tackle it. Doesn’t everyone know this?   
  • You have the eyes of a hawk. Even with the pile of work that comes across your desk, no detail gets past you.   
  • You’re a juggler. You can balance your vast array of projects without dropping a ball...all with a big smile on your face. Ever thought of joining the circus? Well don’t, we really need you.   
  • You’re inclusive. You know that working closely with the other business units, partners, and shareholders is the best way to achieve results.  
  • You’re the ultimate host. You’re meticulous in your itinerary planning, making sure all guests have a great time and bring home fantastic memories. After all, you know that your life is only their vacation.  
  • Were you ever a gymnast? Because, wow, are you flexible. You are able to run the gamut from writing reports, to attending meetings, to coordinating an itinerary, to hosting a dinner, to helping visitors, to shopping for gifts for a visiting client.  
  • You’re a giver. You love to share your skills and knowledge with the team to get to your desired result in the most efficient way possible.
  • You’re a big fan of life-long learning and meet every challenge as an opportunity to learn something new.  
  • You understand that running a business comes with its interruptions and challenges, but you just roll up your sleeves and deal with whatever comes your way.  
  • You’re the rare person that loves “other duties as required.”  
  • You’re so good at keeping the BD team afloat; we secretly call you “Life-preserver” behind your back.      
You’re armed with:   
  • At least 1 years under your belt in a similar role  
  • Experience in customer service 
  • An intimate knowledge of Microsoft Office
  • An uncanny ability to effectively manage multiple projects simultaneously 
  • Crazy good communication skills 
  • A love of small town living
It would be extra awesome if you:    
  • Have experience in the Tourism Industry
Your life at Work:    
  • You’re happy to work in a collaborative environment, where sometimes you have to jump in, regardless of the project 
  • You’re good to work 40 hours per week
  • You’re able to help out after hours for special meetings or events 
  • You’re ok with some light physical work (mostly bending, reaching, carrying light items, walking and standing) 
  • You like to get out of the office at least once in a while to do some running around
