We're Looking For an Executive Assistant

It’s been a season of change at Benifactor and a new opening has emerged for the right person to join the team and help take our crew to the next level. We’re in no rush to fill the role, simply looking for you!

About Us

Benifactor Capital exists to be a home for entrepreneurial leaders to co-create and manage great organizations. Eight years ago we launched Frontier Marketing Company, and since have launched several other great businesses. At our core is a group of outstanding General Managers that the ‘B team’ (the CEO, you and some advisors) finds and equips primarily through culture and capital. There’s about 20 of us, mostly marketers, mostly serving charities. We’re mostly a group of millennials, that like to help organizations that do good, be great. Our annual revenue from our five + companies is ~$3 Million (and you get to help oversee it).

About You

You are bright, enthusiastic and have a nice balance of personal accountability, flexibility, collaboration and humour. You are a self professed organization guru with an outstanding attention to detail. Anticipating needs is a prized skill of yours. You’re ready to help with any and all little things to keep our team running at their best.

The Gig

You’ll work directly with Benifactor’s CEO, Ben, to keep Benifactor and our companies running behind the scenes. You’ll also bring your own personality to the team to help our culture thrive.

  • Answer slack messages, text messages, gmail, phone calls, and shouts from across the room.
