Administrative Professional

About Sweeney Construction

We’re a healthy and highly recognized remodeling company in Madison.  We are looking for a full time (32-40 hours per week), permanent, creative, detailed, happy and very organized administrative professional to support our remodeling company. As an administrative professional you will work directly with our sales, design, estimator, and project manager to develop the project from the initial call, through scheduling appointments, to compiling RFP’s and developing proposals. This position is an integral piece of the sales cycle of this company – without sales there is no company. It’s a fast-paced position that requires a collaborative team to develop and deliver our clients’ dream project.

 

We’re looking for someone who is…

  • …organized and can prioritize a long to-do list: During our busiest times we work with upwards of 50 clients. We are looking for someone who can prioritize their work and meet deadlines in order to support the sales and production divisions.
  • …a resourceful, team-player: Someone who takes the initiative to overcome obstacles to get the job done paired with the ability to gather the appropriate people and information to reach closure on tasks is very important in this position as is the willingness to help your colleagues.
  • …technologically savvy: Sweeney Construction is focused on efficient and effective processes – and this means we use technology! We have an IT company for support with more complex issues, but you’ll be our go-to person for day-to-day problems. You should be confident in your ability to troubleshoot issues with our CRM (ProsperWorks), SharePoint, and Google Suite Products and able to learn new programs to streamline communication between our office and field.
  • …excited about working in a small business: As an employee, you will wear many hats. Adaptability, collaboration with other team-members and flexibility are crucial!
  • …looking for growth: Our company is focused on growth and improvement. We want someone who will contribute to this company goal of becoming better – through suggestions and collaboration with other departments.

As an Administrative Professional, while your primary focus will be supporting the sales, estimating and production divisions, you will also assist the marketing and HR departments.
