VICE PRESIDENT OF OPERATIONS

THE COMPANY:

Our client, the Daily Bread Food Bank, is looking for a Vice President of Operations to lead, guide and direct the organization to greater heights of operational efficiency and effectiveness and, in so doing, further their efforts to end hunger in our city! 

Believing that food is a basic human right, not a privilege, the Daily Bread Food Bank works tirelessly to collaborate with all to eliminate food insecurity and advocate solutions to end poverty. You will be the driving operational force behind bringing this mission and vision to reality! 

Procuring and collecting food donations from generous and benevolent doners; receiving and warehousing donations in their 110,000 sq. ft. warehouse (ambient, cooler & freezer), packing and transporting food to their 135 partner agencies, the Daily Bread Food Bank moves over 10 million pounds of food annually and provides much needed sustenance to innumerable families around the city.

Put your warehousing/logistics genius to work, bring about measurable and meaningful change, and be part of the solution!!

THE OPPORTUNITY:

Let’s just say that in terms of the “opportunity scale” this role ranks as a 10 out of 10. Very rarely can one mesh professional competencies and proficiency with the personal satisfaction associated with giving back to the community and making the world a better place!

If you are a Warehousing/Transportation/Logistics guru with a passion for philanthropic pursuits, a voracious appetite for volunteering and a penchant for not-for-profit empowerment, then this is the perfect opportunity for you. 

As the VP of Operations, you will be wholly responsible for all warehousing, distribution and transportation function. Hence, you will have a deep well of expertise to draw upon within these disciplines, often referred to as an “expert” amongst your peer group. Ripe for change and rife with areas for improvement, you will have experience with change management and possess a keen eye for process design and optimization! Implementing industry leading best practices, spearheading transformative change, your continuous improvement efforts, in this case, result not in more dollars in corporate coffers but in more families sitting down to a healthy and fulfilling meal.

Experience with perishables, expiry dates and other such food related regulations and requirements is very important. A background in various types of warehousing environments is also a huge asset; such as the complexities associated with cooler space and the bone chilling realities that come with freezer storage.

You will be an agile thinker and nimble in your approach to volatility, uncertainty and variance. Each day has unique challenges, very few shipments will be consistent day-to-day or week-to-week and more often than not, that which you are expecting is different from what you actually receive…drive optimization and deliver food to the city.

As transportation also falls under your purview, you will be strong in fleet management, routing, drivers, etc.

Finally, and perhaps most importantly, you will be a talented and charismatic leader who has a knack for guiding, directing and empowering highly effective teams (inclusive of an ongoing volunteer workforce), as well as a interacting and engaging with external stakeholders.

This is truly a rare and rewarding opportunity and we look forward to sharing the exciting details with those who are keen to learn more!

COMPENSATION:

Comprehensive compensation program, commensurate with experience and in-line with the not-for-profit status of the organization.

EXPERIENCE:

  • 10+ years’ of warehousing & transportation experience.
  • 3+ years’ in senior leadership role.
  • Knowledge of specialized requirements associated with the storage and transportation of food products.

QUALIFICATIONS:

Post-Secondary education and/or Certifications specific to the logistics profession are an asset.
