Position Description (see full job description on CI's Job Openings webpage)
The CI Logistics Coordinator is instrumental in executing high quality field programs throughout the year. We are looking for
someone who can complete tasks autonomously, works well with instructors and our small team, and maintains attention to
detail while supporting multiple field programs. The CI Logistics Coordinator is primarily responsible for all gear, food, and
transportation logistics for 30+ camping and day trips CI delivers yearly as well as collecting, tracking, and reporting student
data. This role requires direct communication with CI instructors on trips to plan, pack, prepare for, and debrief each trip.
The Logistics Coordinator also works with the Program Director and Curriculum and Development Manager to support new
program implementation, hire and onboard our Field Instructors, and develop relationships with organizational partners. As
part of a small team, the Logistics Coordinator may be asked to take on other responsibilities as they grow with the role.
Experience with wilderness risk management, graphic design and video editing, and Spanish fluency are highly valued skills
in this role but not requirements. All CI staff are expected to attend CI events (including occasional evening and weekend
events) and represent CI in a professional capacity. The Logistics Coordinator works closely with the Curriculum &
Development Manager and reports to the Program Director.

requirement, please reach out. We’d love to hear from you!
