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 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 supervises one or more residential program assistants (RPAs) or general assistants (GAs) who provide logistical support to the office manage rand run errands on and off campus. Additionally, this position is customer service oriented as office managers are often the first point of contact for staff, students, parents, and the host institution.
The office manager's work schedule is arranged with the site director and varies depending upon the demands of each day. Considerably more hours are required than normal during the start-up, intersession, and closing weeks of a session.
At residential sites, office managers work approximately 45 hours per week once a session is underway. At day sites, an office manager's typical work week is Monday-Friday from 8:00 am-4:30 p.m. once the session is underway. 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.
