• Mentor and train other support professionals in hard skills like computer programs, and soft skills like teamwork
• Plan high-profile, complex events like offsites as well as smaller-scale gatherings such as service recognition parties

• Some flexibility in your schedule – we value work/life balance, but in a pinch, a bit more time is needed
• Very strong organizational skills and attention to detail
