Job Responsibilities:

Seeking an Administrative Assistant to support the Office Manager in the daily operations. Our team prides itself on being a multi-tasking machine. We are looking for someone who not only excels in the ability to multi-task but welcomes the daily challenge (as do the others on our team).

We work hard as a team, and we are looking for a special someone to be with us long term as we grow. We truly believe we are only as good as our team so we will be picking the candidate best described above. Yes, we want someone with a positive attitude, a desire to work as efficiently, and excellent telephone and communication skills. If you like to work in a fast-paced office and enjoy working with a broad range of people and nationalities, we would love to talk with you! Primary job duties are answering incoming calls and scheduling appointments using our database and digital tools.
