Attention Homebuilders-Dream Job Available
March 20, 2008 — Do you want to spend your working hours advancing the homebuilt movement? Can you infect other people with the desire to build their own aircraft? Are you ready to turn your hobby into a career?
If you answered, "yes," to all the above then we just might have your dream job! EAA is looking for a Homebuilders' Community Manager to oversee the organization's programs and services related to building your own aircraft.
The position has resulted from a recent organizational restructure, designed to provide the EAA membership with improved value and service in core areas such as publications, websites, Chapters, information services and government relations.
"This new position is part of a renewed commitment to update and strengthen the services that EAA provides to the homebuilder community," said Adam Smith, Vice-President of Membership. "We are looking for a strong and capable person to help ensure that homebuilding remains what it has always been-an essential part of EAA."
Internally this position is being referred to as the "Homebuilders' Czar" said Charlie Becker, director of member programs. "Seriously, we want to find someone who really wants to help spread the homebuilding gospel; especially someone who is forward thinking about using the Internet to grow the movement," he said.
The "Homebuilders' Czar" will be responsible for the planning, implementation and ongoing management of programs aimed at helping the aircraft builder. Some duties of this position include:
- Management responsibility for the Technical Counselor & Flight Advisor programs.
- Development of new programs and services for homebuilders.
- Working side by side with the EAA Government & Industry Relations staff on homebuilt issues.
- Working with the EAA Publications department to develop magazine and website content.
- Be an active participant and leader in the development of the homebuilding community online.
The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate significant personal experience in aircraft building and a strong understanding of EAA, its Chapter network and the homebuilt aircraft movement.
EAA offers a family oriented, fast-paced, casual atmosphere with opportunities for professional development. Employees receive competitive salaries, benefits, and the chance to live and work in the capital of sport aviation - Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
But perhaps the best part of working at EAA is that helping to bring enjoyment to tens of thousands of members around the globe is an inherently cool way to spend a workday. EAA headquarters staff members love what we do because we're doing what we love.
