This role is very dynamic in nature and has a big impact to the team!

Efficiency is a big part of our company culture. To us this means being able to do more with less, always finding better, smarter and easier ways to do things without compromising quality. An example of this could look like automatic reordering of supplies regularly or adopting a new tool that makes a process so much simpler.

Organization is equally important. It enables your ability to be both efficient and effective. Organization to us means using tools (calendars, SharePoint and other internal tools) to keep things where they need to be. It also means taking appropriate notes when being assigned a task so that the task can be completed to meet expectations. Organization also includes having guides and documents created and in the right places so that yourself and others can easily refer back them to be able to complete a task.

Being Detail oriented is key and we need an individual who has an amazing eye for details! Being detail oriented reduces the need to go back and forth between different individuals we work with (internal or external). We always strive to do things right the first time and learn from mistakes quickly so they never occur again. Details are also important in anything related to bookkeeping and reporting which the business relies upon.

Finally majority of what you will do will be on the computer. It’s CRUCIAL that you are extremely comfortable on the computer and using Microsoft programs such as Outlook, Excel and PowerPoint. Many of the tools we use can be learnt through online tutorials and courses, requiring you to be open to continuously self-learning to increase your efficiency and in turn making regular tasks easier for you and more impactful towards the team!

We are lean in nature and most team members have multi-functioning positions within the company.

We praise new ideas, new methods of doing things and learning what works and what doesn’t. We promote thinking outside the box to solve problems and often look at how we can simplify or automate any process we do, freeing up valuable time of any team members and making tasks easier to complete!
