About the Ntityix Development Corp
Ntityix Development Corp (NDC) began its land development and construction activities in the mid-1970s and has since evolved into a diversified group of businesses. Our diverse portfolio includes businesses and strategic assets in residential and commercial real estate (Lakeridge Park Estates, Snyatan, Okanagan Lake Shopping Centre), forestry management (Ntityix Resources LP), residential, commercial and institutional construction (WIBCO), and professional services. It is our vision that by maintaining our success we will ensure that in 20-30 years the Westbank First Nation will be financially self-sufficient, socially progressive, and culturally rich.

At NDC we are striving to be the leading indigenous land development and investment holding company in order to increase the health and prosperity of the Westbank First Nation. If the idea of working for a company where your actions can truly improve the lives of others appeals to you then we invite you to read about our current available opportunity below.

About the Opportunity
Currently, the NDC is seeking an enthusiastic Retail Store Manager to lead the management and development of our brand new Syilx Trail Gift Store and Gallery, based in the Okanagan Lake Shopping Centre. The Store is currently under construction and will be located within the Sncewips Museum which will be relocating from its current location.

In this role, you will develop a vision for the new store based around celebrating indigenous artists with a deep focus on the Syilx culture of the Okanagan Nation and continue to work with senior management to implement this vision while ensuring the commercial success of the store itself. The store has huge opportunities to grow and transform as dictated by your entrepreneurial spirit.

Some of your key responsibilities may include:

-Hiring a retail team and managing them to ensure the store is thriving both commercially and professionally.
-Contributing to the aesthetic appearance of the store.
-Reaching out to Westbank and Syilx artists within the Okanagan Nation and working with them in order to showcase and sell their work.
-Ensuring that the majority of products are Canadian made and specifically making all efforts to endorse locally and BC made items.
-Coordinating with Westbank elders to volunteer within the store.
-Coordinating with the Sncewips Museum, that is currently being built, and its curator to ensure it and the store are aligned in what they display.
-Fostering an environment within the store of celebrating indigenous artists.
-Showcasing the store as part of the November 2019 International Indigenous Tourism Conference being held in Kelowna.
-Creating a strong network with other similar gift stores and galleries in the Okanagan Nation and throughout BC.

In order to qualify for this role, you will have previous experience in Retail, Art Curation, or Event Management along with the ability to operate a point of sale system and some commercial acumen. Previous experience working with First Nation communities is not required but is certainly an asset.

As our ideal candidate for this role, you will have a natural creative spark that compliments your ability to successfully manage a project from start to finish. Given that this is a new store, being comfortable starting with a blank canvas and having the drive to push forward with your vision is a must. Your strong communication skills and ability to build up a positive rapport with just about anyone will ensure your success in this role. You will be empowered and supported to utilize your entrepreneurial spirit to make the Syilx Trail Gift Store and Gallery a resounding success.

If you're looking for the chance to create something new, then this is the opportunity for you!

About the Benefits
Upon joining the Ntityix Development Corp, you will be welcomed into a culture that is supportive and inclusive. You will also enjoy being part of a committed team who genuinely want to see you succeed.

For your hard work and dedication, you will receive highly competitive compensation and a benefits package, including:

-Group health and dental benefits
-Opportunities for performance-based incentives as the store develops
-RSP matching of up to 5.5%
-15 vacation days on joining
-10 personal days per year that are accrued monthly
