The Office Manager would be expected to work eight hours per day for three days per week for 51 weeks. The schedule of work days will be coordinated with the Executive Director.

CHS recognizes New Year’s Day, MLK Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.

Because Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day fall within CHS’s busiest season, the Executive Director may require the Office Manager to work on those holidays. If so, the Executive Director will adjust the Office Manager’s schedule in the off-season to make up for any holidays worked by the Office Manager.
