Children’s Alley Coordinator

Are you a lover of children’s literature, a think-out-of-the-box programmer extraordinaire? Do you have extensive experience with literacy and education? We might be looking for you! Miami Book Fair International is currently on the hunt for a Children’s Alley Coordinator for the Fair’s famed Children’s Alley component. The 2014 Children’s Alley Coordinator will work under the Director of Operations and Director of Programs to create adaptable, developmentally appropriate children’s activities, and to contract musical and theatrical acts for the Children’s Alley Stage. The correct candidate will also be in charge of selecting and ordering children’s books (and all accompanying supplies) for event-time activities based on the different  age groups targeted. Additional duties include, but are not limited to: preparing contracts for outside acts and services, cultivating relationships with community partners and sponsors, and creating and maintaining a detailed schedule of events. During the Fair, the Children’s Alley Coordinator must be on-hand to troubleshoot and manage activities within the activity tents. He or she must possess overall excellent customer service and communication skills (both oral and written). Computercompetency is necessary. Ability to understand technical vocabulary and specs related to musical and other performances, a big plus.

This is a fast-paced, multi-faceted position which requires the ability to efficiently multi-task under great amounts of pressure.
