The Board of Directors of Caughnawana Fishing and Hunting Club is seeking candidates for the position of club manager(s).

The current management team plan to retire at the end of the current season but have expressed an interest in returning part time next season to facilitate a smooth transition.

Caughnawana is one of the oldest private fishing and hunting clubs in Quebec and was founded in 1899. The club has 70 members and entertains about 200 additional member guests each year. The club operates from May through October. Approximately half the members own cabins on or near club property while the other half use club owned facilities including a central dining room. A description of the club and its facilities can be found by visiting the club website.

The management position is for 6 months and covers a wide range of responsibilities. Accordingly, while the current managers are a husband and wife team the Board of Directors is prepared to consider alternatives that cover all the necessary skills. Management – This involves managing the resources of the club including the hiring of staff as required within the scope of an approved budget.

The manager is expected to keep accurate records, prepare invoices using Quickbooks for services to members and work with the club accountants to produce financial statements. Appropriate training in the club’s financial system will be provided.

The club is service oriented and operates 7 days a week therefore the Manager is expected to ensure a high level of service availability through appropriate organization of staff and resources. Good communication skills are an essential requirement both with members and staff.

Dining Room Service- The club provides gourmet food services to its members. The Kitchen Staff prepare three meals per day on a fixed schedule for members as well as providing staff meals at alternate times. The dining room is typically very busy from the opening of trout season in early May until mid June with limited use during the summer. Additional kitchen staff are typically hired on contract for the peak period. The manager is responsible for hiring a chef, serving staff, cleaning staff and ensuring an appropriate level of meal planning as food shopping is typically done once per week in North Bay.

Housekeeping Services – The club maintains four cabins which are rented by members. The manager is responsible for hiring housekeeping staff (generally also part of kitchen staff) that cleans, changes linen and does laundry. Housekeeping staff may also provide these services for cabins owned by members. The club provides a garbage collection and recycling service.

Grounds and Equipment- The club rents boats and motors on a number of lakes for use by members. Additionally, the club provides propane, gas and firewood for all member cabins as well as a broad range of maintenance and repairs. The club operates a barge, tractor, ATV, gas powered golf carts and a variety of equipment that need to be serviced and maintained. The club has a 12K diesel generator, a variety of solar installations, satellite internet with lake wide wifi and voice over internet phone, water pump and purification system all of which require maintenance.

The manager is responsible to provide skilled staff to operate, maintain and repair all of the club equipment as well as support to members that own separate cabins with similar equipment. Given the broad range of skills required the ability to research and develop creative solutions is a major asset. In summary the club is seeking an experienced management team and support staff for the 2017 season and would offer employment for the balance of the current season in order to begin training with the current team.
