Your New Role
As Operations Assistant, you will provide support to MCRRC’s Executive Director as well as to the club membership and volunteers.  Some of your regular tasks will include, but are not limited to, fully managing the club’s online gear shop (fulfilling orders, shipping, inventory management, and helping to come up with new ideas) and keeping order in our warehouse (light cleaning, organizing, inventory management and supply ordering). You will manage the club’s monthly CPR classes and Run Performance Labs (advertising and corresponding with participants and instructors) and handle regular administrative tasks such as answering the club’s phone and regularly collecting & distributing mail from our P.O. Box.  As experience and trust is built, additional duties may include helping with online registration, event coordination, light bookkeeping and permitting.  You will become one of the main points of contact for the public, membership, program directors, race directors and volunteers.

You are proficient with Microsoft Office.  Basic level skills in accounting, RunSignup.com, QuickBooks, Groups.io, Google, and knowledge of the functionality of MCRRC are a plus, but not required.
