 Love the idea! Wage seems low though given the qualifications you guys have put down. Good luck!

 Thanks... budget is tight working within the not-for-profit setting. Revelstoke and area does have a lot of talented, under-employed professionals... fingers crossed!

 For the level of responsibility you're shouldering the candidate with, this is not nearly enough money. And you've shortchanged the time necessary (460 hours?) to manage a project of this nature, clearly the employer lacks experience or they would know this already.

 I would love to, but don't have the qualifications. Moving out to Revy soon enough anyways though
