All positions are part-time, independent contractor positions.

Our business is growing nicely, and so we're looking for a smart, energetic personal assistants: one in Venice and one in Santa Barbara to help two busy executives be more efficient and productive.

Hours and days are flexible, (even Saturdays), so it's good "fill in" work for someone who's got other things like teaching, acting, parenting, etc.

Santa Barbara: 10-15 hours per week. At present, the work will be done remotely (from your home), and part-time hours will be flexible. Much of the work will be done by email and phone.

Venice: 10-15 hours per week. Involves in-office work (on Abbot Kinney Blvd) as well as errands around Venice, Santa Monica, etc.

And for someone who wants to grow into online marketing roles, this could be a great growing opportunity. You know you're on Facebook too much now....Maybe you can get paid for it.

RESPONSIBILITIES

First and foremost, this is an assistant position. With the right skillset, the projects could also include small writing projects, social media marketing, and other geeky fun stuff.

Primarily, we need help on traditional exec assistant projects and tasks:

  • running errands, picking up things, some shopping
  • managing executive calendar and scheduling
  • making and confirming appointments
  • setting up reminders for a variety of repetitive tasks
  • managing contact databases
  • helping to stay on top of executives' tasks and To-do's
  • some basic bookkeeping, bill tracking/paying, etc.

Generally, you'd contribute to making sure the trains run on time and that things don't fall through the cracks.

POSSIBLE AREAS OF ADDITIONAL RESPONSIBILITY

If there is interest, it is possible that the position could evolve into marketing-related activities. Examples:

  • Facebook fan page monitoring and posting
  • Twitter monitoring and posting
  • research for and/or writing of blog articles
  • coordinating blog content writing schedule
  • coordinating email newsletters
  • direct mailing projects

REQUIREMENTS

We are kind of geeky. We use computers in everything. (Well, most of us do.) Our assistant must be very comfortable with extensive use of email, Internet research, Excel, Word, etc. Example, if we ask you to export contacts from Outlook into a CSV, and clean up the columns in Excel, you can't freak out and run Borders to get a "For Dummies" book.

  • Excellent communication skills, with great attention to detail
  • Positive, "how-can-I-help," no politics attitude at all times
  • Super comfortable with email, Internet search, and computers in general
  • Proficiency with Excel (as an organizational tool, not necessarily for financial modeling, etc)
  • High familiarity with Santa Barbara and area
  • Did we mention attention to detail? We're sticklers.

NICE-TO-HAVES

  • 1 year of assistant experience
  • Experience with and a passion for writing, blogging.
  • Familiarity with Twitter, Facebook and social networking
  • Familiarity with Wordpress or blog tools in general
  • Familiarity with Google Calendar

APPLICATION PROCESS

The position will be a part-time independent contractor. 10-15 hours per week, sometimes more. Pay will be set commensurate with experience, $10-12/hr.
