The Administrative / Office Assistant is a self-motivated, energetic professional experienced in handling a broad range of administrative duties and support-related tasks. Far from just answering the phones and directing calls, the right individual will be an administrative jack-of-all-trades with both breadth and depth of experience and the desire to take full ownership of their role to support the organization, colleagues, customers, and constituents.

Organized. Flexible. Trustworthy. Honest. Discrete. Responsible. These are the hallmarks of the individual we’re looking for. Someone who enjoys the administrative challenges of wearing multiple hats, providing support to a variety of office roles and responsibilities, representing the ACEN as the first point of contact for our organization externally, and operating at a high level to help keep the wheels spinning internally.

The perfect individual possesses not only the necessary experience, but a ‘no task is too small’ / ‘can do’ customer-service attitude (for both external and internal customers),
