Job Opening: Galileo Learning--Customer Service, Recruiting, Camp Director
Galileo Learning was recently recognized as the #3 medium-sized company in the "Best Places to Work in the Bay Area" awards by the SF Business Times. How did we earn that distinction? As a company that brings educational summer camp programming to 26 Bay Area locations, we constantly bring reminders of the joys of summer camp into our Oakland-based headquarters, from lunchtime talent shows to games and songs kicking off our staff meetings. (The rubber chickens decorating the office help, too!) At the same time, we are a rapidly growing, entrepreneurial company that strives to foster an environment of professional and personal growth, challenging each staff member toward excellence. Working in our Home Office team of 30+ means joining a close-knit team of high achievers who are passionate about Galileo's mission, which is to help young people discover and pursue their passions and to nurture the careers of current and aspiring educators.
We are currently hiring for 3 different seasonal internal roles in our Oakland Home Office, as well as 2 director-level positions in our camps (including one year-round role). See below or our website, http://corporate-galileo.icims.com, to learn more and apply.
The recruiting department is looking for two new members to join our seasonal recruiting team! We are hiring a Phone Interviewer who will review camp staff applications and phone screen candidates to be sent to group interviews. We are also hiring a Recruiting Coordinator to handle the administrative tasks including managing the candidate interview process, conducting reference checks, and handing all candidate correspondence via phone and email. Both of these new members will have two training dates in mid December and then start in the office in January of 2011. The Phone Interviewer will work through May, and the Recruiting Coordinator will stay on through the summer to manage our alternates (substitute camp staff) and wrap up in mid August.
We are looking for 4 fantastic customer service specialists to work from approximately January August. Your main responsibility will be to provide families with excellent customer service by answering incoming calls and enrolling students in camp. All 4 of these new members will have training December 13-15 and then start in the office in January of 2011. Three FT roles will work 1/3 to 8/13, and one 20-hour per week (9am-1pm M-F) role will work from 1/31 to 7/15.
