Job Opportunity - Director of Recreation & Community Services


This is a full-time non-unionized position, which reports directly to the Chief Administrative Officer.

This position is generally responsibility for the development and delivery of all recreational programming for residents of all ages within the town. The Director is also responsible for ensuring that all recreational buildings, facilities, parks, trails, and open spaces are properly maintained and suitable for safe and proper use by the public. While responsibilities associated with this position appear to be in two broad areas of recreational program development and facilities management, there are a number of other areas of responsibility for which this position assumes an important leadership role, and these have been specifically outlined in the Scope of Work in the job description for this position. Other reasonable duties assigned by the CAO and/or Council which relate directly to the areas of responsibility outlined for the Director of Recreation and Community Services also apply.

This individual will be expected to work closely with the Chief Administrative Officer for the provision of services relating to recreation and community services.  The Director attends public Council meetings and provides professional advice and direction to Council and senior staff on issues or concerns related to recreation and community services. 

The job is broken down into several broad areas of responsibility outlined as follows:

* Program Development and Support
* Facilities Management
* Budget Preparation and Financial Controls
* Coordination of Special Events
* Other Duties and Responsibilities

The Director of Recreation and Community Services must have completed a degree or diploma in physical education or community recreation. A business degree or degree or diploma in facilities management, or a combination of practical experience and academic background in either of these areas would be an obvious asset. Specific skills and experience in the area of community recreation program development are essential, and knowledge and skills in facilities management and event planning are tremendous assets. This individual must have a valid driver’s license, and due to the nature of the work, must possess excellent inter-personal skills and good verbal and written communication skills. Working knowledge of modern computer technology and software packages such as Microsoft Office would be an asset for this position.  Preference will be given to candidates with the most suitable combination of academic qualifications and pertinent experience.


This employment opportunity offers a competitive salary and benefits package.

The Town of Marystown is an equal opportunity employer.  This competition is open to both male and female applicants.

Applications must be received on or before 3:00 p.m., February 3, 2015.

Apply in writing to:

Non-Permitted Businesses


All businesses operating within the Town of Marystown’s planning area (including Beau Bois, Spanish Room, Jean de Baie and Rock Harbour) are required to have a permit to operate.  Please refer to the Town’s website at www.townofmarystown.ca for a copy of the Town’s Development Regulations and Municipal Plan as well as the Town’s Tax Structure as it relates to permit fees.

Marine Industrial Park

The Town of Marystown has developed a new Marine Industrial Park in the Power’s Cove area, boasting 15 large fully-serviced lots (lots can be subdivided to meet individual needs) with plans for a laydown area and 1,000 foot wharf.  Because of its ideal location – a well-sheltered, ice-free, deepwater harbour - this Marine Industrial Park is well-suited to take advantage of the opportunities in the supply and service sector, specifically oil/gas, fabrication and manufacturing.

A Marketing Plan is now being developed to hilight the attributes and benefits of the park.  This information will be posted via a web link once it is available.

For more information on the Marine Industrial Park or to view a lot, please contact the CAO at 709-279-1661, ext. 227 or email info@townofmarystown.ca.
