We're searching for a mature high-energy office assistant to take over our open Front Desk Manager position.. Your primary responsibility will be answering phones and responding to questions (and occasional complaints) in a friendly and timely manner. This is not a position where you will just take messages - the successful candidate will be someone interested in learning the business, growing professionally, and being an active participant in client communications so that they can nurture and develop those relationships.

Other tasks will be to create and implement office protocols to streamline our workflow; greet visitors; schedule appointments (avoiding people and resource conflicts), set up company events (in-person and virtually), monitor & order supplies; research & recommend new office equipment, and related tasks as needed to keep the front office running smoothly and efficiently.

This is a critical position in the Firm, and we need just the right person. Applicants should be looking for a career and a home, not just a job. Must be detail-oriented, 9 or 10 out of 10 in organizational skills, have excellent communication skills & be able to multitask without getting flustered. Legal background, Customer service, and CRM experience are all a plus. If this position sounds intriguing to you, send us your resume today!
