The Business Administrator is an integral member of a small management team and will be directly responsible for managing financial systems and providing overall business analysis, hands on bookkeeping activities and some general administration. This is an excellent position for an individual who is self-motivated, comfortable working in detail as well as at a more strategic level and who can easily manage multiple priorities.

This position is well suited to individuals who have held positions wearing multiple hats within small organizations and who are equally as comfortable in a more casual marine environment as they are in contributing to overall team success and company growth.

This is an opportunity to work within an organization where the expectations are high and individuals can see that their contributions relate to the overall success of the organization as well as furthering their career objectives. The company culture is driven, yet casual with high expectations for meeting results.
