RIDG Seeks Office Manager

RIDG (Royal Innovation Design Group) is seeking an Office Manager (also known as the Office Maestro) that is a calming, organizational force and builder of infrastructure in our fast-growing, creative consulting company.

The Office Maestro enjoys leading from within an organization, while crafting and applying their passion and expertise in order to lead administrative harmony among the RIDG team, its systems and services. They will be able to walk into our unorganized office, whip it into shape and “make it sing” because that is what they love. They celebrate being the back-stage mechanic to our front-of-house performance, and they seek to work in an environment that celebrates them. This person understands their role as an orchestrator of talent, service, and systems to build greater opportunities as we grow as a company. This person is comfortable with and enjoys having multiple deadlines, projects and deliverables that must be managed simultaneously. Our Office Manager enjoys a work environment that is casual and fun while managing their role seriously enough to get the job done. They must be able to harness the power of a very dynamic leader so that the organization can run as smoothly as possible. This person seeks the balance of personal and professional development and really loves being stretched to both become their best self and provide the most value to the team they serve.

Our ideal candidate will be experienced in handling a wide range of administrative and executive support tasks, and will be able to work independently (with little or no supervision) and collaboratively within a problem solving team. This person must be tech savvy, exceedingly well organized, a self-starter, someone who checks their own work, and flexible. They must get excited about providing organizational systems where very few exist and be able to lead others in the continued implementation of these systems. They will be resourceful, working from a non-traditional office environment with shared desks, or remotely.

If this is you, come on down. You will be the first impression of our company, combining a pleasant personality with a dynamic professional attitude. You will perform a variety of administrative tasks, including managing phones and emails, scheduling appointments, light financial administration and planning meetings.  Our Office Maestro (with the power to “crush it” organizationally) will be the secret sauce to take us to the next level.
