As you can imagine it takes a team to keep things running smoothly and ensure that every VetMedTeam member and/or student obtains assistance whenever needed. As an operations assistant, the successful applicant would be responsible for handling day-to-day business components such as processing memberships and course enrollments, assisting with catalog and course functionality, and assisting members and non-members with questions and requests for help or information.
The right candidate for the position would have a varied skill set:
Self-motivation: As a work-from-home position, an operations assistant must be able to focus on their workday regardless of the common distractions that can occur within the home
Organizational Skill: The nature of the work requires a high degree of organizational skills. Attention to protocols is required but within that there is a degree of flexibility
Detail Focused: Components of responsibilities will require sharp attention to details. Some tasks will be more complicated than others and without this skill it would be easy to get off-track.
Writing Skills: As our mode of communication is the email, it is vital that the candidate has a strong grasp of the written word with the ability to communicate in a professional, yet friendly, manner.
Personal Responsibility: The right person for the position would be someone who enjoys working on tasks, and delivering on those tasks, without being micromanaged.
Veterinary Understanding: Understanding the differences between the positions in a practice, including education and general licensing requirements, is beneficial as that knowledge relates to all parts of VetMedTeam and our members.
This position does not require a degree or credentialing. The right candidate will have the appropriate set of skills and a specific educational set or licensing is not required.
This is an independent contractor position which allows for time flexibility. However, the daily hours need to be during business hours. This position would need to be the candidate’s primary work. It cannot be secondary to additional work hours. However, it does not block working on additional projects or employment outside of VetMedTeam.
Occasionally, a few hours will be on weekends, perhaps once a month.
Compensation depends on a number of factors and will be discussed with qualified candidates.
If you are interested, please submit a cover letter and resume.
We have been a provider of veterinary online continuing education since 1999.
