  • Perform accurate data entry into our systems, as well as other administrative tasks as assigned, such as data clean-up, word processing, and mailings.

  • Support on-the-ground programming as needed, including staffing program check-in events and certificate distribution. Some evenings, early mornings, and weekends may be requested on select dates in June, July, and August.  

 

Required Qualifications:

  • Strong written and oral communication skills with ability to clearly and concisely explain programming, policies, and procedures in person, by phone, and by email.  Must be comfortable speaking on the phone.

  • Customer service-oriented attitude. Ability to maintain professional composure and represent the department in a friendly, helpful manner.

  • Meticulous attention to detail.

  • Excellent time management skills and ability to multitask in a fast-paced setting with frequent interruptions.

  • Comfortable using standard office hardware and software, e.g. Apple OSX, Google Suite (Google Docs, Sheets, Drive, etc.), Word, and Excel.
