The University of Maine at Presque Isle is seeking to fill a full-time Head Nordic Ski Coach and Admissions Counselor.
The Nordic Ski Coach will lead and manage all aspects of a Division I Men's & Women's Intercollegiate Nordic Skiing program. The ideal applicant would be capable of, and committed to, competing with the top ski programs in the US. The head ski coach is responsible for the direction for the men's and women's skiing programs, adhering to NCAA rules and regulations and providing technical expertise to maximize performance of team members, including strength and conditioning of athletes. The combination of strong coaching leadership, early snow, training at one of the top Nordic skiing venues in North America, and a community that is very support of skiing, have helped send several athletes in this young program to NCAA Championships. We are looking for a coach to build on that early success and turn that into a tradition.
The primary responsibility of the Admissions Counselor component of the position is marketing the University's academic programs to students from high schools, technical schools, adult education or career service programs and other colleges and universities through presentations, personal visits, telephone, texting, and e-mail communication. The counselor will also participate in recruitment activities on campus including but not limited to: personal interviews and tours, Discovery Days, Accepted Student Days, and may represent the University at various other campus and community functions as assigned. Evening and weekend hours and frequent travel in and out of state are required. The Admissions Counselor works closely with all members of the Admissions team and maintains relationships with faculty and enrollment-related offices and staff, i.e. Financial Aid, Athletics, and Advising.
Although position commitments will vary according to season, the position is split between coaching and admissions responsibilities. Admission commitments, including recruitment for the Nordic program, will be most extensive outside the competition season.
The salary range for this position is $27,000 - $39,000, based on the qualifications of the applicant. Benefits include medical, dental, and tuition waiver programs for employees and dependents. In addition, the University of Maine at Presque Isle retirement program provides a 10% employer contribution.
