You must have a professional demeanor and know how to communicate in a way that is clear and courteous both in face-to-face meetings, via phone and email.

Although writing opportunities will be limited (at least initially), we seek someone with solid writing and copy-edit skills, as you'll be managing a lot of copy changes. This is an hourly-based, permalancer-type position. Total hours per week are still being determined, but it would be in the 25 – 35 hour range.
