REQUIRED SKILLS, EXPERIENCE, and RESPONSIBILITIES
1. Maintenance of the road network is of critical importance. The ideal candidate will have several years of experience maintaining dirt roads in mountainous terrain. The candidate will also need to have experience with plowing roads in areas of significant snowfall and icing. Candidates must have experience operating tandem snowplow trucks, road scrapers, earth-moving equipment, high-volume lawn mowers and other maintenance equipment. Knowledge and experience repairing such equipment would be a plus.
2. With the supervision of the Board of Directors, the candidate must be able to recruit, hire, and manage an honest, hard-working, careful team of maintenance workers. While there is a team currently in place, it is foreseeable that new employees will need to be hired in the future. The candidate needs to be comfortable and experienced in hiring employees.
3. Maintain accurate records of homeowner service activities and provide timely preparation of bills for submission to the RSPOA accountant.
4. Provide the Board with timely notification of staffing, maintenance, homeowner, and guest issues that might impact ongoing neighborhood operations.
5. Be familiar with and encourage homeowner compliance with RSPOA Protective Covenants and promptly notify the Board of Directors of compliance issues.
6. Assume primary responsibility for conducting the homeowner services business. This requires significant exposure to individual homeowners and will require both prompt, competent service and tact. Additionally, the Director will have to be sensitive to scheduling the provision of such services in a fair and objective manner.
7. Maintain strict confidentiality regarding Robinson Springs homeowners and their activities, and their personal and professional lives. Ensure that all staff do the same.
1. As residents of Vermont, we are all subject to the whims of weather. The Director should be prepared to ensure that roads are always plowed, de-iced, and passable during mud season 7 days a week.
2. Driveways will also need to be plowed and de-iced at all times, and this must occur early enough to enable residents to meet their work and travel obligations.
