Job Title: Language Center Operations Assistant

Department: Language Center

Reports To: Administrative Director

Designation: Full-time

The FIAF Language Center is the largest language school dedicated to teaching the French language in the tri-state area. With more than 8,000 registrations annually, we offer French in two convenient locations: Manhattan’s Upper East Side and Montclair, NJ.


Position Summary: The Language Center Operations Assistant will be on the frontlines of customer service for the FIAF Language Center. S/he will be knowledgeable in all Language Center activities (group classes, private lessons, corporate lessons, exams, preschool) and be able to confidently reply to any customer or potential client. S/he will look for patterns in these interactions in order to help improve communication with students as well as the Language Center’s own operations. The hours for this position are Monday-Thursday 9am-3:30pm and Saturday 9am-5pm, at our Manhattan location.

Responsibilities:

·        Greet and welcome clients and students, answer all questions they may have.

This job might be for you if:

  • You notice great (and not-so-great) customer service. You think your morning latte tastes best when poured by a happy, welcoming barista and you’re excited to provide that same experience for our students.  
  • You are an ace communicator. Your emails make people smile and you can explain just about anything to anyone.
  • You are a helper. You find it satisfying to help someone solve a problem and you’re willing to jump in wherever needed.
  • You’re an organized multi-tasker who gets a thrill out of checking items off your to-do list.
  • You are curious, creative, and open to learning from mistakes.
  • You are tech savvy and comfortable learning new programs and tools quickly.
  • You have a passion for the French language and culture and want to share that passion with others.
