The Role

Director of Administration

Hello, people-focused, change-embracing, systems-thinking administrative leaders! 

Are you looking for an environment where you can make a real difference? A place where you can influence and lead a department to directly impact the culture and performance of the entire company every day? A company with leaders committed to training, developing, and promoting other leaders and professionals like you?

As an industry-leading organization, Servicon creates healthy spaces for people to thrive. To be the best in this and any services industry, we need an exceptional administration organization that balances the standardization of cross-departmental systems with flexible frameworks that can be customized to specific client needs. We need a hands-on leader to step into a challenging yet rewarding opportunity to transform and elevate the administration function of a rapidly growing company in the complex world of facilities services.

Do you love to…

  • Evaluate and redesign administrative processes to handle complex, client-specific requirements
  • Ensure 100% compliance with regulations and reporting requirements in dynamic business environments
  • Engage, develop, and upskill administrative professionals to thrive in an ever-changing business
  • Drive behaviors that continuously elevate a positive, collaborative company culture

If this sounds like you, we need to talk…like pronto, yesterday…immediately!


We are looking for a people-oriented leader to…

  • Connect with our people to build a high performing, engaged administrative team that is a strategic business partner
  • Assess our current administrative processes, systems, and capabilities to identify gaps and opportunities
  • Develop and execute a transformational roadmap to build an agile, client-centric administrative function
  • Design and implement customizable frameworks and processes to meet complex client needs
  • Collaborate with IT to drive technology initiatives to automate tasks and connect information across departments

While we know it is always a significant challenge to bring change to an organization, seeing the difference we make every day in the people we lead is rewarding.

How You Can Thrive

We expect you to learn and grow in this role. As a thriving family enterprise transitioning from tribal knowledge to documented, systematic execution, we’re fortunate to have many opportunities for your professional growth.

This next evolution of our business requires a dynamic, thoughtful, and autonomous Director of Administration who will be part of our team of directors collaborating to professionalize our growing company. You will assess every aspect of our daily administrative operations, identify opportunities for improvement, align business priorities, and restructure/redesign the department to meet the company’s strategic objectives.

This is a people-facing, collaborative role. Our business revolves around service delivery to clients; most major systems touch every department in the company, from Operations in the field to the corporate office. You will work with people at all levels and disciplines to understand and orient administration staff to business priorities.

To excel in this role, you will be an experienced professional with in-depth knowledge of administrative processes and business system analysis techniques. You can see the big picture (i.e., you’re a systems thinker), understand project objectives, understand data gathering and reporting, and be able to apply your understanding of how processes should work to operational improvement initiatives. Change management and leadership skills will also be critical for success.
