New Boston Creative Group, LLC, needs a smart, meticulous, experienced office manager/executive assistant with a warm and friendly style. You will do a little bit of everything, so adaptability is the word of the day! 20 to 30 hours/week. Non-smokers only. Position begins November 2, 2020 (flexible).

Required

Professional phone, in-person and online demeanor and appearance: This person will be the first contact with prospective clients, so cheerfully and appropriately handling inquiries, calls, visitors, etc., is critical.

Flexibility: We’re looking for someone who is cheerful, who can calmly handle anything that comes up, who’s willing to do whatever needs to be done, and who has a great sense of humor. Prioritizing tasks and communicating constantly are imperative. In addition, the principals are heavily involved in outside professional and volunteer activities, and this person may help with those from time to time.

Initiative, responsibility and problem-solving skills: We want someone who can identify problems, propose solutions, and make everybody’s life just a little better. And we don’t want to have to remind you about your duties, so if you’re a self-starter, we want to talk to you.

Experience and expertise: At least two years’ professional office administrative or management experience. Demonstrated ability in office practices such as correct formatting of letters, efficiency in developing filing systems, and suggestions for improvements of relevant internal processes.

Software mastery: Microsoft Office suite and total comfort learning new applications specific to this business.

Valid drivers license.

Preferred

Light bookkeeping: We would like to find someone who can, under supervision, handle some typical small-business, light bookkeeping responsibilities including AR, AP and invoicing clients. Quickbooks experience a plus.
