Job Description:


The Humphrey Group is a leadership communication firm solely focused on helping our clients lead every time they communicate. Using our methodology, we deliver communication training and consulting services to thousands of executives, managers, and professionals. Our programs help clients inspire action in a variety of situations: from formal talks and presentations, to meetings, phone calls and Q&As.

Over the last 30 years, we’ve worked with clients in leading organizations around the world, including Fortune 500 companies, governments, not-for-profits, and entrepreneurial start-ups. We’ve delivered our training in over 15 countries, including Canada, the United States, Mexico, China, Japan, and India.

Our offices are located in Toronto, Calgary, Vancouver, and Mexico City.

We’re looking for a friendly, proactive, and detail-focused person to join our team in Toronto as Administrative Coordinator. This is a 13 month contract position to fill a maternity leave. We’re a growing company so there is potential for a permanent position at the end of the contract.


The Administrative Coordinator is the first point of contact for clients and visitors at our office. This person provides essential administrative support to our CEO and management team, as well as in the areas of accounting, IT, and contract management, as well as providing reception and general office support. Specific duties include:

  • Reception duties, such as greeting clients and managing mail and couriers.
  • Answering phones, responding to inquiries, and directing calls.
  • Forwarding correspondence to the appropriate parties.
  • Managing the calendars of our CEO and management team by proactively scheduling meetings and phone calls.
  • Coordinating management team meetings and events.
  • Managing or participating in company event planning.
  • Supporting the accounting function by entering bills into Hubdoc and Quickbooks, getting cheques signed, and mailing payments.
  • Managing the production logistics for our CEO’s podcast called “Inspire.”
  • Managing the appearance and functionality of common spaces (reception area, boardrooms and kitchen).
  • Ownership of ordering office supplies, equipment, groceries and catering.
  • Supporting course coordination by preparing course materials and coordinating delivery.
  • Proofreading and formatting collateral and other documents.
  • Managing our contract database.
