Executive Assistant

Corporate | Akron, OH | Full Time

Job Description

Are you an Executive Assistant, Administrative Assistant or Office Professional seeking purpose, challenge, and talented colleagues? Would you like to join a growing company?  CESO is a small engineering and architectural firm with large firm project opportunities: shopping centers, restaurants, large hotels, convenience stores and urgent care centers, among others.  We develop and empower staff to use their gifts to impact the world through service – to our clients, to our families, and to our communities. We subscribe to the mission “finding purpose through serving others,” so if this speaks to you, let’s connect!

As Executive Assistant, you’ll work with our President daily to facilitate execution of corporate and local meetings, initiatives, schedules, and work plans to ensure a high degree of efficiency.  Using Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and Excel, you will create and edit correspondence, presentations, proposals, reports, agendas, to-do-lists, meeting minutes, applications and contracts. You’ll use your business judgment, creativity and resourcefulness to anticipate and prioritize activities (meetings, phone calls, travel, document preparation) with a focus on relieving the President from as much administrative burden as possible.

We develop and inspire our employees through training and coaching on and off the job.  At CESO we believe that work should be more rewarding than just a paycheck.  In addition to a comprehensive benefit and compensation program, our work environments are warm inviting spaces to collaborate with your teammates.  CESO is a principle-centered organization, thinking and acting in alignment with strong values of service, integrity and authenticity.  We create memories and friendship through our employee and service events including lunches, birthday celebrations, outings, and community service opportunities.

The ideal Executive Assistant applies his/her keen business judgment and exceptional administrative skills in a forward-thinking manner.   An outstanding communicator with a focus on details, this individual enhances the success of our executive team by recognizing priorities, initiating action and removing obstacles.  If you’re a wiz at organization and Microsoft Office Suite and have a passion for serving others, this is for you.

If you agree, we look forward to hearing from you! CESO is an EEO employer – M/F/Veterans/Disabled.
