Our Ideal Candidate
You are a high performer who can “hit the ground running” and bring experience into the ecosystems we operate in - high tech and/or professional services. You’re passionate about the work you do – adding value to the business through well executed culture and inclusiveness programs. You anticipate business needs and love to put order to chaos and are energized by a good challenge. You see opportunity in a less than optimal process and look for new ways of incorporating process efficiency. You realize success with the appropriate amount of confidence, orientation to the collective success of the organization and team over personal gain and ego-orientation. You demonstrate adaptability, tenacity, and resiliency and can balance work-load with high touch delivery. You are comfortable with a reasonable amount of ambiguity.
You have a global mindset, cultural sensitivity and an appreciation for and ability to speak to the importance of the employee’s experience on our culture. You demonstrate strong project and program management discipline with the ability to independently prioritize and track complex, competing schedules; proactively anticipate and complete tasks; and self-initiate programs. With your advanced administrative management mindset, you partner and work across boundaries (organizations, business processes, systems, programs) to assess best ways to operationalize and deploy programs. You are comfortable addressing issues and acting without significant direction, work independently and have a good sense of when to escalate issues and gain other perspectives and alignment.
You are organized and have keen attention to detail. Technology usage is a strength, and you are comfortable navigating across Workday, SharePoint, and the MS Office suite of tools. You have experience with WebEx and CNET (or affiliated event planning systems) or have a strong interest to learn.
And finally, you want to learn and grow in your work experience and have some fun while doing it.
