- Chocolate That Tells A Story -

Newfoundland Chocolate Company is an iconic brand throughout Newfoundland and Labrador and around the world. Built on a reputation of quality, artisanship, and finely crafted chocolate, while sticking close to its Newfoundland roots, this is a company where excellence is evident at every interaction.

Born and based in Newfoundland, the Newfoundland Chocolate Company was established over a decade ago in the basement of Brent Smith and Christina Dove’s home. The founders, lifelong chocolate lovers, began making delicious chocolate as a family business and then opened their first shop with the goal of sending a taste of Newfoundland and Labrador out into the world. Today the Newfoundland Chocolate Company has grown to include three retail locations in St. John’s, NL. The organization expanded their business to include a wholesale division and online sales. In addition to that, it operates a strong event calendar and offers custom and corporate sales.

KBRS has partnered with Newfoundland Chocolate Company in seeking the next General Manager to lead their organization.

Reporting to the CEO, as the General Manager of Newfoundland Chocolate Company you will oversee and continuously improve upon the day-to-day management of the organization’s activities and operational functions – including sales and marketing, operations, maintenance and security of facilities, inventory control, merchandising, sales and profitability, and cost containment. Together with the CEO, the General Manager provides leadership to management and staff.

As an ideal candidate, you have a successful track record in managing overall business and financial operations within an entrepreneurial retail or manufacturing environment. You bring a minimum five years of relevant experience. You are self-motivated and highly proficient in a variety of functional areas, such as operations, finance, human resources, and customer service. You have superior leadership, decision-making, planning, and time management skills paired with excellent communication and interpersonal skills. As a leader, you are highly solutions-oriented and have a talent for identifying innovative growth and process improvement opportunities to advance the strategic objectives of your organization. Your organizational skills enable you to manage competing priorities and challenges and to excel at anticipating and positively responding to evolving requirements and timelines. You value employees and their professional growth. You motivate and engage staff to the highest level, which in turn produces great organizational outcomes. Retail and/or manufacturing management experience would be an asset.
