The Employee Communications team is a small but mighty group in the Public Affairs Division whose customers are the hard working, amazing employees of TriMet. In order for TriMet to be successful, employees need to be informed, engaged, appreciated and ready to be safe and reliably serve our customers. The Employee Communications team touches every aspect of the agency through our publications, presentations, consulting and advocacy. The Senior Employee Communications Coordinator is the hub of information flow for the agency juggling multiple communication channels to educate employees on various programs, projects, committees, initiatives, strategies and policies mixing in fun, storytelling and a good sense of humor along the way.
This job might be right for you if:
You walk into a room full of TriMet employees and feel energized to meet everyone, learn their stories, find connections and discover what they love - or don't love - about working for TriMet.
You always make time to answer a question for an employee who needs some assistance, no matter how close a deadline looms.
You don't take things personally and instead look at each encounter as a learning opportunity.
Last minute changes are just a part of life and don't fluster you.
Proactive is your middle name.
You listen for the good news story to share with others in every conversation you have.
You excel at emotional intelligence.
You can break down technical jargon and excessive acronyms and make a subject understandable to just about anyone.
You're equally at ease talking with a mechanic in a bus garage, staffing a table in operator report areas or delivering a presentation to new employees or the leadership team.
You connect the dots, light fires and clean up messes.
You are neither intimidating nor intimidated and a little conflict doesn't scare you.
You view different personalities as keys on a piano, there to make beautiful music together.
