In this role, you have the opportunity to engage with all aspects of our business, from Account Management and Sales, to Product Development and the ongoing support of our workforce.

What you'll do
  • Manage business accounts — onboarding, retention, support and other aspects of the client lifecycle.
  • Partner closely with Sales staff in order to provide quality support to specific clients and workers.
  • Develop and manage strong relationships with clients and handle all inquiries, day to day requests for labour, schedule confirmations and payroll preparation.

  • Respond to and follow up on client requests — maintaining our industry leading reply and resolution time.
  • Identify process improvements and escalate issues when needed.

Who you are
  • 1-3+ years of account management, community support, customer service or administrative support experience.
  • Based in Ontario
  • Fluent in both English and French
