Position Overview: duties & responsibilities
Annie Wright has a unique story and we are looking for a creative genius to help us tell it! No day will be the same in this role. One day you may be working on Strength magazine inspiration and layouts, the next you may be developing admissions advertisements and music recital programs. In between that, you might swing by the Grade 2 airplane toss to snap some photos and get some video - then you’ll head back to your desk to produce a branded video about the event to share on social media and send to Admissions so they can blast an email to potential Preschool-Grade 2 families.
