Landscaping & Grounds

General grounds keeping duties including mowing, trimming, weed removal, mulching, watering and tree pruning on facility site at Spirit of St. Louis Airport. Parking lot maintenance including parking space cleanup, striping and snow removal. Volunteers need to have some familiarity and a level of comfort with the operation of power equipment, including a mowing tractor.

Purchasing

The purchasing department acts as the supply chain management & procurement arm for Wings of Hope. Most, if not all purchases made, include involvement from purchasing. This insures that all materials and services delivered to WoH are accounted for, and the proper billings delivered to accounting for processing and application to cost centers. Services contracted for include: aircraft parts and supplies, building and maintenance services, I.T. supplies and equipment, printing, brochures, marketing mailings, donation campaign materials, and any other goods and services needed by the organization. Negotiations of pricing, service quality and delivery policies are the prime consideration when selecting any vendor.

While we solicit competitive bids for all Wings of Hope purchases, the sourcing of parts for the aircraft we rehabilitate is sometimes more problematic. Many airplanes donated to Wings are fairly old, and just finding a part – anywhere – can involve many hours of phone calls and web searching. Our aircraft part sources range from general line and specialty suppliers of new factory parts, to salvage yards which specialize in recycling usable parts from aircraft no longer in service.

Whether it is aircraft parts, promotional materials, office supplies, etc., the mission of Wings of Hope Purchasing is to give WoH the biggest bang for its purchasing dollar.

Requirements for new team members include, but not limited to, the following:

  • Sales/sales management experience in a business-to-business environment or purchasing management experience in a manufacturing-related organization
  • Microsoft Office@ proficiency with Outlook@, Word and Excel
  • Significant proficiency in search engine operation and key word/phrase usage
  • Strong business savvy
