  • Office filing
  • Maintaining all office duties Monday to Friday
  • Creating positive clientele relationships and experiences

Experience with the following would be an asset, however the right candidate would be trained:

  • Windows/Mac systems
  • Wordprocessing
  • Photo editing
  • E-mail/Calendar
  • Multi-line phone systems

Having a valid driver's license and access to your own vehicle is a plus, as some times you will be needed in our other locations for extra staff support.
