You have demonstrable experience of managing processes and administrative tasks in a virtual office. You have a proven ability to provide excellent customer service and are used to dealing with volunteers. You have strong IT skills and experience of customer relationship management systems for non-profits. You have experience of arts administration and/or an interest in sacred choral music.
