Office Assistant

I’m looking for somebody to help me with many aspects of running the business side of our vegetable farm. This is a great job working for a family business where you can feel great about what we produce. You can work flexible hours and take home our organic veggies to feed your family!

Flexible hours – You must have some afternoon availability, but there is some flexibility in hours. Your hours will fluctuate during the course of the year. You will work more hours during the 8 months of our busy farm season (April – November). The other 4 months of the year (December – March) will require less work. These are the approximate hours you will work:

December – March: 10 – 20 hours per week

April – November: 20 – 30 hours per week

Duties

  • Bookkeeping: AR, AP, and invoicing in QuickBooks Online
  • Customer Service: Respond to customer emails
  • Marketing: Edit marketing materials, update pricing signs, create brochures / flyers, update website, and post on social media
  • Help implement food safety program
  • HR: Review new employee paperwork, collect payroll data, print payroll
  • IT: Support and troubleshoot computers, printers and WiFi
  • General: Update POS system, collate and print reports, log receipts

Computer Skills

  • Excel: You must have a solid knowledge of Excel. I can teach you how to use a lot of the other programs we use, but you must know how to use Excel.
  • Basic Word and PowerPoint knowledge
  • QuickBooks Online
  • WordPress
  • Various other online systems for CSA management, POS, and employee scheduling.

Other Skills and Abilities

  • Meticulous attention to detail. I need to be able to trust that you will enter things perfectly into our bookkeeping system, etc., and not make typos.
  • Ability to work independently and take detailed direction.
  • You must have a good attitude and be willing to pitch in wherever it is needed.
  • You must be able to work with all kinds of personalities – even difficult people.
  • Conversational Spanish is a plus.

Benefits of working with our Team

  • You are welcome to take our organic veggies to feed you and your family.
  • No office attire – come to work in your comfy clothes.

A few things to consider before you apply:

  • Will the seasonal variability in hours work for you?
  • Farm work is certainly not the highest paying work you can find. Will the pay we can offer work for you?

Pay rate: $15/hr
