Distribution Lead - Alaska Channel

Friday, March 08, 2019

Alaska Channel is looking for a motivated self-starter to join the team this summer, from March through September (if you are a student, weekends only are OK until school is out).

We are a small company of less than 10 people and each team member is key to the overall success of Alaska Channel. Your place in the company will be to distribute our Alaska Activity Guide, Alaska Activity Map, quality check our in-room TV Channel in hotels (Alaska Channel) and promote The Alaska App in Anchorage. This is more than a distribution job – you will be representing Alaska Channel across the Anchorage area.

You will…
• Stock guides and maps at hotels, shops, restaurants, the airport, rental car agencies and more according to usage.
• Ensure best placement of products by building a relationship with the staff at key distribution points.
• Track inventory levels throughout the summer. It will be your responsibility to ensure inventory targets set by the Alaska Channel team are met weekly.
• Inventory guidebook and map stands and audit them for wear and tear.
• Maintain storage facility where materials are stored before delivery.
• Perform monthly room checks at hotels that play Alaska Channel TV to ensure the channel is displaying accurately.
• Basic troubleshooting of video playback equipment and video kiosks in the lobby of hotels.
• Educate staff on our products, and encourage use of our promotional materials (e.g., business cards and displays featuring The Alaska App).

Apply if you…
• Are a confident, consistent communicator.
• Are a self-starter and independent thinker.
• Are comfortable getting support and coaching, but not being micro-managed. You will be able to set your own hours so long as delivery takes place within business hours. Therefore you must be able to get the job done within the parameters you give yourself.
• Have access to / have your own vehicle for delivery.
• Are responsible to hold a company issued credit card for gas.
• Are comfortable with forming and maintaining relationships with front-line staff.
• Motivated to ask for best placement of our products at hotels, shops, and restaurants.
