About this Opportunity

We are looking for someone to man our small office. This is a long term appointment of at least 3 months.  Please be able to commit to that at least.  It's very quiet other than the odd walk in and seniors taking computer lessons. We need to be open weekdays, Mon - Fri. however we recently had some staff changes so shifts need to be filled.

- Occasionally a resident will come in to use a computer and they must be logged in.

- Or they may need to use the phone.

- We also have information residents can utilize

It's extremely important that we keep this office open. . You are more than welcome to utilize the staff computer for the time you are there.

Other duties include:

- posting flyers for our regular programs.

- Help with other senior programs we run when necessary.

- If you have the knowledge and wish to pass the time faster, we have some people that would like to have computer lessons.  Nothing elaborate, just basics and beginners.  Some wish to learn social media, some to set up an email, some how to surf the net, etc.  This is not required but if you have some computer skills you would like to share, we would appreciate it.

We are looking for someone to start as soon as possible.
