PURPOSE & OBJECTIVE
An Assistant Community Manager assists not one but the entire pool of Community Managers in the day-to-day management of their communities. Assistant Community Managers are expected to retain the on-the-job skills that they learn while assisting the Community Managers, as ProCom typically prefers to promote from within. Therefore, the goal of an Assistant Community Manager should not only be to efficiently and effectively complete the tasks assigned by the Community Managers but also to prepare themselves for eventually becoming a Community Manager.
SKILLS & QUALIFICATIONS
Because Assistant Community Managers assist the entire pool of managers, they must be flexible, be able to follow directions, be attentive to detail, be able to prioritize assigned tasks and manage their time, and be able to work with many different personalities. They must be proficient in Microsoft Windows, Word, Excel, and Outlook. They must possess good verbal and written communication skills and excellent customer service skills. They must have a positive attitude, a desire to learn constantly, and a desire to become a Community Manager themselves eventually. They must be reliable and dependable, on time, and have reliable transportation. A high school diploma is required, and some college is preferred.

The average travel distance to a ProCom-managed community is 15 miles. Assistant Community Managers are also expected to attend continuing education classes and seminars, all of which are within driving distance. ProCom reimburses all employees for work-related travel.
