What You Will Be Doing & How You’ll Grow
Join our team and work with professionals from the comfort and flexibility of your own home office. This is a full-time salaried role. (CareerJoy office if you are in Ottawa)
You like working with people and are a natural networker. You are outgoing, smart, persuasive, organized, and pick things up quickly. You are comfortable conversing with a broad range of individuals, including senior level professionals. You are a natural problem solver, and pride yourself on your time management skills. You have a genuine desire to help individuals find fulfillment in their careers. You are a YES person, are curious and eager to learn, and are comfortable diving into a project with little prior knowledge or supervision – you know you’ll figure it out.
Responsibilities and Duties
In this full-time role, you will be accountable for the day to day client experience through coaching programs, resolve client concerns, and improve the client process, supporting the creation of more robust learning environments for clients. You will take phone calls from new potential clients, manage the online chat, schedule meetings, and follow up on key deliverables.

In order to best serve our clients, this role requires flexibility with a mix of fixed shifts to offer availability to clients across Canada. (Ex. 3 days a week, 9-5, 2 days a week, 12-8, depending on your time zone.)
