compensation: $15/hour
employment type: part-time

Seeking a rock star personal assistant who can make things happen. The Artful Parent is an online business all about helping parents and teachers foster their children’s creativity through easy and fun art activities. We have a lot of exciting new projects in the works and need a hand to get them all done.

This is a part-time position that reports directly to the founder and is a mix of work-from-home as well as in-person collaboration.

A few questions…
~ Are you a figure-it-out and get-it-done kind of person?
~ Do you have a good attitude and get along well with others?
~ Do you have an appreciation for art and creativity?
~ Do you like watching from the back of the stage, knowing that the show was able to go on because of all your behind-the-scenes work?

In addition, the ideal person we are looking for is...
~ Beyond organized (we want YOU to be able to give us organization advice).
~ Detail oriented, hard working, and efficient.
~ Communicative and responsive, with strong written and oral communication skills.
~ Comfortable with technology. We use many online systems to keep our company up and running and you must be comfortable with social media, computer software systems, and processes.
~ Self directed. I allow a lot of freedom and flexibility, but if you can’t get the job done, meet the deadlines, and make it happen without lots of supervision, we won’t be a match.
~ Reliable. We all have families, problems, and personal lives, but I provide enough flexibility that not meeting deadlines will be unacceptable.

Duties and Responsibilities

Responsibilities include but are not limited to:
~ Schedule social media
~ Communicate and coordinate with employees, sponsors, contractors, service providers, readers, etc
~ Set up systems and processes using our project management software
~ Assist with photo and video shoots, including arranging spaces and people and setting up + cleaning up art activities
~ Help with tech and computer tasks
~ Run errands and make arrangements as needed
~ Perform research

This position will begin at 5-10 hours a week and the tasks outlined above, but has the potential to grow with the applicant and the business. I’m looking for someone who has a flexible schedule and who can start soon. In addition, applicant should live in the Asheville area and have their own car, computer, fast internet, and smartphone.
