Job Description

About You:

You’ll enjoy working within a collaborative and supportive team context to provide compassionate, non-judgmental, professional, and client-centred support to each individual.  You are passionate about exceeding client expectations, excited to offer solutions, and engaged in the process of seeing people reach their goals and find success.  You treat people with respect and remember names.

You have exceptional computer skills and will provide administrative support to the team and help clients navigate technology both in person and over the phone. You may even have an understanding for Social Media and how it can be leveraged to reach a wider audience.

New challenges excite you, you love to learn, and you dig in when you need to find solutions. You have a good balance between being focused on details while not being afraid to let your creative side shine through.

Your attitude and energy are positive and infectious, you don’t take yourself too seriously, you like to laugh, and you remain calm even in the midst of a changing environment. You’re okay with taking on “other duties as assigned” and jumping in to help the team in whatever way you can.

  • Support the Business Advisor/Job Developer by updating and maintaining multiple CEC online job boards
