Job Summary

This position is one with many dimensions and requires a person who is flexible, accommodating and willing to help with any task that arises. While rooted in office management and executive assistance, the position expands to include event management, finance and clerical work, community/campus outreach and a number of inner-campus activities.

The ideal candidate is an ambitious person with a keen perception of what needs to be done, how it can be done best, and organizing a plan to accomplish it. The Auxiliary Business Development (ABD) Office is a dynamic and active place where no task is beneath any member of the team. This position is no exception and frequently leads the team in carrying out events and activities. Confidence, organization and sound management skills are qualities important to this role, as is a commitment to customer service and teamwork.

As the marketing, communication and business development arm of Auxiliary Services –an expansive scope of work– it is important to note that many of ABD’s duties and responsibilities do not fall within the hours of a standard workday. After-hours work is occasionally required, primarily throughout football season where attendance and hosting is required at all home games. Some travel may apply other times of the year.


This position requires independent coordination and sound decision-making for all aspects of the department’s operations.
