Office Manager Needed

Training Tracks is looking for a new office manager to handle customer service, billing, and administrative duties for our fast growing dog training business. This is a work-from-home position that could be done from anywhere with a fast reliable internet connection. We’re a small company with a flexible and highly supportive work environment and generous paid time off policies. The position currently requires 25 hours a weeks, but has the potential to grow into full time work for someone willing to take on new responsibilities.

Our business is growing quickly, and our trainers have busy chaotic days that can make it tricky to keep track of administrative duties. Our office manager is the glue that keeps it all together. We need someone with fantastic communication and organizational skills as well as the patience to stay on top of trainers who sometimes struggle to find time for client correspondence and admin duties.

Desired Experience:

  • Experience working as an executive or administrative assistant, ideally for a small business owner or professional.
  • Customer service experience
  • Experience working directly with clients in the pet industry

Required Skills:

  • Strong commitment to customer service: Our office manager is the face of our business with our customers and the voice of our customers within the organization. We need someone committed to helping us ensure that our customers get the best service possible.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills.
  • Computer skills: Proficiency with Google Docs, MS Word, Excel, and ideally WordPress. None of the apps that we use are particularly complicated, but we need someone who is generally comfortable with technology.
  • Flexibility: Our business is constantly evolving as we grow. We need someone who can easily adapt to changing processes.
  • Patience and Persistence: Working with animals is seldom predictable. Our owners and our trainers can all get behind on admin tasks when work gets crazy. We need someone who can prioritize a backlog when it occurs and stay on top of staff to get it done even when they need repeated reminders.
