About this role 

As a key member of our team, you will be the first point of contact for new clients. You will also provide administrative support for Tea & Toast’s CEO, our Director of Operations, and our Senior Living Advisors.

We are a growing company in an industry that is constantly evolving, so it is critical that you have the ability to be flexible, innovative, and responsive. A great sense of humour doesn’t hurt, either!

Our clients often come to us in a highly emotional state. You will need to be ready to listen with patience and compassion and gently guide them through the next steps.

Everything we do is team-based and client-centred. Effective communication is the cornerstone of our success.

About Tea & Toast

Tea & Toast works in collaboration with seniors and their loved ones, navigating the complex senior living industry. In senior living, education is key. Tea & Toast Advisors understand the industry from the inside out, empowering their clients and assisting them in making appropriate and informed decisions for, and with, their loved ones. As the family’s advocate, a Tea & Toast Advisor will help guide families on their journey from discussing care needs, to touring, to home selection and relocation, all while keeping our senior’s needs and preferences at the forefront.
