If you are looking for the traditional path, you may be in the wrong place. But if you are looking for autonomy, leadership opportunity, and the ability to have a tangible impact on a company and its people, let’s talk.
Are you constantly looking to improve? Are you committed to the discipline and persistence needed to realize your potential? Are you tough enough to handle the inevitable setbacks that will come along the way?
You might be just what we’re looking for.
We’ll be honest. We don’t want advice-givers or analysts. If you want to sit in a fancy office all day, we’re probably not the right choice. Instead, we want talented, passionate people who actively want to be in the arena. We want those who are willing to take action and are prepared to accept the results – good or bad.
For us, character is more important than experience. We don’t care where you come from or what you’ve done previously in your career, as long as you are willing to work hard and can pick up new concepts quickly.
In addition to our core values, we screen for four key qualities.
We want people who are naturally interested in businesses of all types. This is about more than just the bottom line. It’s about an inquisitiveness that will help drive progress and learning.
Small business operations are unpredictable. Things can and do go wrong all the time. We want individuals who can absorb a setback without losing enthusiasm.
If you’re always trying new things, you must also realize you don’t have all the answers. We’re looking for those who will take the time to learn and ask questions when placed in a new environment.
Small business leaders wear multiple hats. We’re looking for people who are excited about the opportunity to apply their skills across sales, finance, operations, legal, recruiting, and everything in between.
What Our People Say
Our new partnership was a big unknown for me but what really impressed me the most about them was their willingness to listen to how the company had been running and to understand what was making OK Frozen Dough so successful.
There really is no shortage of challenging problems to dig in to. One of the great things about this job is to get feedback on how helpful a project was or how something we were able to help with wouldn’t have been possible without Chenmark.
If you want to run and build a company, you want the challenge and autonomy and are comfortable with true ownership and responsibility. And that’s exactly what you’ll get with the GVP program at Chenmark.
