Facilities Coordinator

Overview


Our Good Neighbor Facilities Coordinator is a team player with a background in event management who loves creating and maintaining organized systems, understands their role in creating a seamless, memorable experience for our guest’s events and has strong communication skills.

This person coordinates with the owner regarding specific event needs, does facilities maintenance, sets up and breaks down events, and works at our events understanding the duality of clear communication and boundaries with our guests while supporting their vision and hopes for an amazing event. A great match for this position is someone who optimistically challenges themselves when faced with the unknown, seeks to refine systems, communicates clearly and enjoys working with people. Although a background in facilities and event coordination is preferred, it is not required. If you have a strong desire to contribute positively to our culture and work as part of our dedicated team, we want to meet you.

The Good Neighbor backyard is a garden oasis tucked behind a retail space along the bustling Piedmont Avenue corridor. It has been a labor of love to turn what was once an overgrown, unused space into a premiere outdoor event space that provides a warm, inviting backdrop. Our garden space is used for celebration of life, engagement, retirement, baby shower...big transitional events.

People who lack self awareness, are not open to feedback, or are not a team player need not apply. Ultimately, we are looking for someone who has a talent for organization, supporting coworkers and guests, a strong interest in people and creating a space to congregate, and who is wholeheartedly enthusiastic about growing with our business. If this is you, we can’t wait to meet you!
