Operations Assistant

Operations and Facilities Management

You’re a jack of all trades – at least that’s what people tell you. If there is a problem, you’ll solve it. And whether installing equipment, coordinating with vendors, or setting up for an event, you can do it all. Variety is vital to your happiness, and you find fulfillment in impressing internal customers with your responsiveness and ability to anticipate needs.

You believe prioritizing is a true art form. Even the tiniest of details deserves your attention, and you take pleasure in checking “complete” on tasks both big and small. Smooth sailing doesn’t happen by accident, and a well-kept and meticulously crafted workspace is crucial to your organization’s efficiency and success.
