Job Description

The Position:

Reporting to the Site Leader, the Facilities Coordinator at Chicago Cubs Baseball Camps acts as the epicenter of successful camp operations, spending each camp day on the move as they ensure all camp programs and activities are prepared for ballplayers. The Facilities Coordinator must execute a smooth and efficient operation of the site so that ballplayers can get the most out of their camp experience while being able to spot and resolve issues before they arise. The Facilities Coordinator's duties are physically rigorous, and they must possess a tenacious work ethic, strong organizational skills, and a positive attitude.

* Finish the Job. There is no way to hide it, our Facilities Coordinators grind every single day. You are one of the first people on site in the morning and one of the last to leave every day. With this continuous hustle comes a sense of pride in being able to see a day of camp executed to perfection.
* Support the Team. You are a part of the leadership team on-site for a reason. Facilities Coordinators will work to support their fellow teammates by running equipment, filling water coolers, and ensuring operational efficiency on-site throughout the camp day. The best Facilities Coordinators can push themselves above and beyond the call of duty while constantly upholding the Headfirst Professional Sports Camps mission.
* Handle the Curveballs. We believe obstacles are temporary and embrace any challenge as an opportunity to improve. As a member of our team, and in this position, you will be asked to step out of your comfort zone to help problem-solve, lend a helping hand, and take on other responsibilities as requested.
