This position requires an exceptional team player who is positive, proactive, organized, detail‐oriented with a strong sense of urgency to complete tasks.

Additional Support/Expectations:

  • Adapt to change quickly as the ASC Leadership Team rolls out guidance and tools for streamlining administrative work, and business partner alignments are adjusted.

  • Provide direction and guidance to non-supported business partners so they can perform administrative tasks on their own (e.g., calendaring, travel, expense reporting, etc.).

  • Attend various business meetings as needed to understand the business area and priorities.

  • Attend ASC team meetings as assigned or directed.

  • Create and edit documents, spreadsheets and presentations.

  • Create and maintain group lists, distribution lists, spreadsheets, databases and collaboration sites.

  • Assist with administrative tasks in pre‐boarding and onboarding of new employees to the area as requested by the ASC manager and/or business partners.

  • Identify innovative techniques to increase productivity across the team.

  • Serve as a backup for other administrative assistants in order to meet workload deadlines or during absences from the office.
