Description of who we think would be a fit

If you enjoy coming to work and strive to make sure things are in order and to help others, this might just be the job for you!

We are a small but quickly growing pharmaceutical company with the need of a Corporate Assistant/Office Manager to help us in the process. Your day to day activities can range from changing that flickering light fixture to booking travel arrangement for co-workers, and setting the lunch table for the entire office. You have an eye for details and know when things are needed-before it even happens. Your co-workers will be running around trying to stick to deadlines, and their schedule is packed from morning to the evening. That’s when your service-minded side would kick-in and help cleaning up in the kitchen, the meeting rooms, and all around the office to ensure a nice working environment. Many times, someone will come to you and ask for your help, and you are the kind of person who says’s “Of course I will help, what can I do for you?” Multi-tasking is one of your stronger sides, and knowing what should be done right away, and what could wait is also an asset of yours.
