What does a Community Associate do?

Community assistants perform a range of administrative support tasks and may also be responsible for general office duties. They frequently serve as the initial contact person a visitor may encounter when interacting with the business either onsite or by phone, and would handle intake duties such as collecting basic information or ensuring necessary paperwork is completed. They may serve as a receptionist and greet customers or visitors, answer phones, perform data entry, prepare correspondence and other communications, and coordinate schedules.

Community assistants have at least a high school diploma and some experience in an administrative support or customer service field. These roles require a high degree of patience, a passion for customer service, and good customer service skills. Proficiency with data entry tools and software programs is expected.
