The MRA position requires the ability to effectively relate with personalities both inside and outside of the School.  The Finance Office is a global, customer service oriented function in the School.  There are several colleagues, with a variety of personality profiles, with whom the MRA will have almost daily contact.
Parents of students attending the School will get emotional about the finances of their child's attendance here.  There may be extenuating circumstances (divorce, separation, etc.) that will intensify their emotional disposition.  The MRA has to be prepared to deal with these emotions with patience, tact and courtesy.  The MRA may very well be the listening post for parental complaints about the expense, certain teachers, and their child's experience at the School in general.
The MRA needs also to be a teacher, as parents will need to be instructed in their use of the My Backpack software platform, how to complete and submit enrollment contracts, the withdrawal insurance program and the FACTS automatic payment system.
These interpersonal skills and the abiltity to deal with a variety of personalities, each with a varying range of emotions, is as critical to this position as is the required technical expertise.
Compensation commensurate with experience.  Interested candidates should forward a resume to Nancy Horbert,
