THE ‘EXECUTIONER’ ROLE – UX DESIGNER ($65,000 – $85,000)

Hanging Rope

In the late 1700’s, in Roscommon, Ireland lived a woman named Betty, and her son. Although she was despairingly poor, Betty was literate … and she taught her son to read and write.

She would constantly remind her son that only money could bring him happiness in this world … and when he was finally old enough … she encouraged him to leave Ireland … and earn his fortunes in America!

Years later, a well-dressed man, looking for a place to say …  knocked at Betty’s door. She opened her home to him, and later that night … as he lay sleeping … Betty crept into his room and plunged a knife into his heart!

As she rummaged through his belongings (looking for money), she discovered this man was, in fact, her son!

Overcome with the horror of her actions, Betty stumbled into the street … confessing her guilt. She was arrested, stood trial and was condemned to death – by hanging!

On the day of her execution … as Betty and several other criminals were being led into the yard … they were informed the executioner had “called in sick” … and the sheriff was refusing to execute them himself.

Seizing the opportunity … Betty asked that her life be spared and in return, she’d hang the prisoners herself!

The sheriff agreed and Betty immediately got to work. So capable was “Lady Betty” that she was appointed Roscommon’s Official Hang Woman … a job with a yearly salary … as well room and board!

What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
Well … nothing, really.
That said … much like the sheriff … our client is also looking for an ‘executioner’ of sorts.
And, while they prefer to call them a UX Designer … they’ll need them to execute … at the highest levels!

Accounting Technician

Believe it or not … there’s a term for people who have an irrational fear of numbers.
It’s called ‘arithmophobia’!

We’ve all heard of superstitions that exist with the number 13 (unlucky) or say … 666 (the sign of the devil).

However … true ‘arithmophobics’ fear all kinds of numbers … especially complex math equations.

So … what does this have to do with Danielle’s latest role?  Nothing really.
That said … if you’re an ‘arithmophobic’ this is definitely not the role for you.

SUMMARY:

Our client is one of the leading accounting firms in Hamilton.
Truth is … they’re busier than a house on fire … and they need an Accounting Technician (or 2 or 3) to help them manage their work load.

The working environment is fantastic.
You’ll be busy … but you’ll learn a lot … and have opportunity to grow within the firm.
Bottom line … they take care of the employees who take care of them.
Your effort will absolutely not go unnoticed!

THE ‘DONNA’ ROLE – ($40,000 – $45,000)

Position Filled Logo

Does the name Donna Paulsen mean anything to you?
If not … she’s a fictional character on the popular TV series – Suits.
Donna plays Harvey Specter’s highly capable … ultra-organized … and exceptionally effective legal assistant.

(Technically … she was promoted to COO this season … but that’s beside the point.)

Donna never sacrifices quality in order to scratch a ‘to-do’ off her list.
She’s process oriented … with an urgency that has her constantly contemplating what more she can do to ‘advance the cause’!

What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
Nothing really.
That said … while Donna is not a ‘real’ person … our client is looking to hire ‘a real-life Donna’ at their law firm!

SUMMARY:

Let’s face it … when you’re starting your career, it’s not easy to find a job.
When you do … you may find yourself working for a tyrannical boss and surrounded by a bunch of lunatics.

So … the question begs … why would you want to work for my client’s law firm?
Well … I could go on and on about the merits of this group but you’ll see for yourself … within minutes of meeting them!

POSITION:       OFFICE ASSISTANT
LOCATION:      DOWNTOWN TORONTO (7 MINUTE WALK FROM UNION STATION)

RESPONSIBILITIES:

Provide phenomenal administrative support to all members of the firm.
Now, we realize ‘administrative support’ is a broad term … but that’s absolutely by design.

The individual selected for this role will be truly be the ‘cog in the wheel’ of the firm.
The responsibilities of the Office Assistant are practically too many to even list!
The essence of the role is to support the firm in every facet of their business.
The attitude required is … ‘no job is too big or too small’.

You don’t need to be a legal secretary … you simply need to the right work ethic!

Here’s just a ‘taste’ of what you’ll be doing;

  • Maintain the filing system (opening, updating and closing of files)
  • Prepare files and documentation for calls and client meetings
  • Make travel arrangements, restaurant reservations and manage calendars
  • Prepare first drafts of correspondence and documents
  • Prepare billing statements
  • Schedule client calls and meetings
  • Database Management
  • Attend internal meetings and work on miscellaneous projects
  • Handle a bunch of random, (sometimes wacky) … ‘out-of-the-blue’ errands


REQUIREMENTS

Approximately 1 or 2 years of experience in a similar type of office-based support role
Wicked attention to detail!
A ridiculous sense of urgency … and creativity
The ability to ‘get the job done’ … period

REMUNERATION:

SALARY: $40,000 – $45,000
