Business Coordinator, Part-Time

Administrative staff members of The Waldorf School of St. Louis support the needs of the students, faculty, parents, and school volunteers.

The Business Coordinator serves the school as an administrator of organizational finances, insurance, and employee benefits. They do this through their work with accounting and reporting, payroll administration, insurance policy renewal and submission of claims, employee benefit administration, their role in the enrollment and tuition assistance processes, and the annual prioritization and budgeting process, among other ways.

As a member of the Administrative Team, the Business Coordinator works with colleagues to provide coverage for the school office ensuring Faculty and Students are assisted as needed, phone calls are answered, and inquiries are appropriately directed.
