We are an Evangelical Christian organization with a large and growing Outreach to At-Risk Kids in central Colorado Springs. We operate 2 Children’s Centers, with about 50 staff serving 300 children ages 6 weeks - 13 years.
This is a staff position in a Christian ministry. We are primarily looking for individuals with an active faith in Christ and a life pattern of involvement in their local church and ministry. (For more information and our statement of faith, you can find us on the web at Springsoflife.org).
The ideal candidate should have strong Excel, Word, Google Docs and email/internet skills. They must also be able move at a fast pace with data entry, computers and administrative tasks. More than anything, they must love the Lord Jesus with all their heart and desire to serve Him in direct ministry. Applicants must have a heart for seeing kids (and their families) come to know the Lord, as this is our highest priority in all we do.
ENROLLMENT SPECIALIST JOB DESCRIPTION:
Our new Enrollment Specialist needs to have an established heart for ministry and strong administrative skills, as all of our Enrollment staff are both regularly scheduled in, and serve on a back-up basis in, classrooms. This is a great opportunity for individuals looking to serve the Lord in direct ministry, with a heart for youth, but with primarily administrative and customer service gifts.
The Enrollment Team works together to achieve its primary goal of keeping our centers filled to maximum capacity. The enrollment team is the first point-of-contact for prospective families and is responsible for communicating via many phone calls and email correspondences each day (both incoming and outgoing).
The Enrollment Team spends about half of its (non-classroom) time with parents on the phone and in-person, answering questions about our centers, helping them complete paperwork, and giving them tours of the facilities and orientations. The other half of the time is spent maintaining the database of leads, entering enrollment packets into our child care management system, and doing other administrative tasks including filing, cleaning, etc.
Every Enrollment Specialist also serves regularly in our School-Age program and in a backup role to our classroom teams, and must be prepared to go into a classroom and serve joyfully at any time. The Enrollment Team must be professional in appearance and demeanor, being a shining example for our organization and, ultimately, an ambassador for Christ to the families that we serve.
