Role Summary: Operations and Program Administrator
In this role you will work closely with the founders of Aurum to develop and administer systems related to our ongoing coaching and training programs and internal operations. We are looking for an organizer/planner/administrative wiz to help us establish systems and processes that will serve as the foundation of our internal operations. We are a small coaching and consulting company, currently running in start-up mode. We have grown fast, and our current ways of operating have reached their limits. This role is for someone who loves to figure out systems, set up processes, and create something that will grow and thrive for years to come. At Aurum we roll up our sleeves, and pitch in, often across roles. As it goes with a startup, sometimes that means communicating with clients, and other times it means running errands. We are building something with a powerful mission, to bring love, emotional intelligence and authenticity into organizations and leadership. And we also have to wash the dishes.
During an average week, the Operations Administrator will be communicating with coaches, clients and Aurum founders, hosting zoom meetings, managing organizational projects, evaluating processes, identifying gaps, and establishing processes that enable our business to expand and scale sustainably. The right candidate is one who takes initiative, cares about the work we do, and is eager for the opportunity to create wide-reaching, positive impact in a fast growing small company.
