Office Admin & Event Coordinator - Spokane WA

Role Profile

The Office Admin/Event Coordinator is a key part of the Photoboxx team. They have a very strong preference and ability to be organized and have a plan. Their actions are calculated and deliberate. They place a high value on the quality of their work and care about details. They don't shy away from being the center of attention and giving instructions to others. They are good at directing and confident in their ability to communicate what needs to be communicated. They set extremely high standards for their work, performance and productivity. They enjoy and aspire to exceptionally challenging goals and are likely to achieve them. They are excited to go to work and show up with a sense of urgency. They love having fun in the workplace. They strive for nothing less than excellence and are willing to put forth great effort to attain it. They enjoy being around and working with a team. They are confident in social situations and exhibit positive emotions. They typically enjoy familiar day to day experiences and routine activities, but are capable and up for the challenge of problem solving and coming up with solutions to urgent and unexpected hurdles.

Typical Day

A typical day consists of emailing and calling clients that have upcoming events and communicating to them necessary and relevant information. Researching and booking travel arrangements for the team. Overseeing upcoming events on the calendar and having a pulse on each of their individual needs and communicating this to the team. Managing shipping and receiving of inventory. Building and managing an event specialized team called Event Operators. Taking ownership of the Photoboxx Headquarters (office). Maintaining cleanliness of the office space, and creating a fun and inspiring atmosphere for the team. Consistent trips to the grocery store and office supply store to keep the office stocked with necessary items.

Sign of Success

A clean and organized office environment for the team. Everything in the office has a place. Food and drinks are consistently stocked and always changing to keep things fun. There’s a plan for everything. A plan for consistent internal team building events. A plan for grocery shopping. A plan for ordering and managing inventory. A plan for keeping the office clean and organized. A plan for communicating with team necessary and relevant information for upcoming jobs. If a client is coming into the office for a meeting, you are thinking how to impress this client with a gift, special refreshments and a clean office. As a matter of fact, you are always thinking of ways to “wow” the clients. If a shipment to a client becomes delayed, you are aware and working on a solution to the problem. If a busy season is on the horizon, you are thinking how to be prepared for this and you are probably hiring a team of Event Operators to handle the busy season. When a team member has a birthday, you have a plan to recognize this. Rather its a gift and cupcakes for the whole office, or off work early and getting drinks with the team, something fun is happening and it’s intentional. You are constantly thinking “what needs to be done and what needs to be improved.” If a Photoboxx Event Operator is traveling for business and at 9pm they call you because there was a mix up with hotel reservations and they cant get checked into their room, you stay calm, and are confident in coming up with a solution for that team member. If a client calls you 3 hours before their event from across the country because they never received their supplies, you are able to calm the client down, stay calm yourself, and come up with a solution that shows our client that our number one priority is customer service and “wow’ing” them. This kind of stuff does not stress you out, you are always a phone call away, and you love the challenge of problem solving and coming up with good solutions in a short amount of time.
