The Office Manager’s Role
The office manager's primary responsibility is to assist the site director in all aspects of the day-to-day operation of the site's main office, including bookkeeping. The position is customer service oriented. Office managers are often the first point of contact for "customers" including staff, students, parents, and the host institution. Additionally, the office manager is the central figure in providing the friendly, organized, and professional office environment that is necessary for everyone else to do their jobs successfully. The office manager's work schedule is arranged with the site director and varies depending upon the demands of each day.
At residential sites, office managers work approximately 45 hours per week once a session is underway, but considerably more hours are required during the start-up, intersession, and closing weeks. At day sites, an office manager's typical work week is Monday-Friday from 8:00 am-4:30 p.m. with more hours as required during the start-up, intersession, and closing weeks. In addition, at day sites the office manager may need to arrive earlier or depart later to assist with Before- and After-Care for students.
