At NOW Communications, we sell things money can’t buy. Ideas. Causes. Change.
Our small team makes a big impact with our clients, working across Canada in social marketing, union communications and electoral campaigns.
We like to lead in our field, work wonders for our clients, and be good to each other at work.
Our new administrative professional is keen to make a contribution to an office team. You pitch in with “how can I help” and try and anticipate people’s needs. You are fast to learn new software and online tools. You like to tackle office systems and find better ways to get things done. You can explain things clearly to people. You care about the details and documenting your work. Errors and missed deadlines make you break out in hives.
Attributes which describe you are diligent, attentive to details, friendly, and innovative. You’re not looking for a quiet job!
A diploma in office administration is a must. No minimum experience. On-the-job training will be provided in our unique administrative foibles.
