Job Description

What’s the position? 

Our coordinator role (SC) is the most influential member of our Midwest Adventures team! We can only be as successful as each and every one of our tours and guest’s experience. For that reason alone we pride ourselves on building the most responsible, entertaining, and best event team in Chicago!

The SC role is a part time position coordinating and running local day long adventures in the Chicago area. This summer we're seeking fun loving people to help us lead our River Tubing trips on Saturdays and Sundays in July and August.  We are on a mission to bring the most talented group of superstars together and pack our adventures with unique energy because we love what we do!


What does it take to be a successful SC? 

You are naturally energetic and always the life of the party. You've never met a person you don't like and everyone you meet wants to be your best friend. You think quick on your feet, are the first person to offer a solution to a problem and are open to all ideas presented by others. You can handle anything that comes your way with a smile, a witty comment, or anything that can diffuse tension in a stressful situation. You are a leader. You are a leader among friends, family, co-workers and in just about any other setting. You are dependable, punctual and are always up for going beyond the call of duty!

What are the responsibilities of the SC? 

We want you to be yourself, bring authentic energy, and have the capacity to entertain a wide variety of people from all ages, ethnicities and backgrounds. At any point during an event you must be able to handle requests from guests and vendors, manage logistics, document event details and professionally handle the inevitable unexpected obstacle throughout the day. We're looking for you to work 2-3 times per month, on weekends, now through March. All in all, we want you to bring your passion for life and experiences to the events we create! 

If this sounds like a dream gig and you're interested, please let Morgen know with a letter about why you feel you'd be good for the position, in addition to your application. Eligible candidates must be 21+ to apply.
