Perfect for anyone associated with the military or DOD lifestyle.
Administrative Support (Former Employee) – Brussels, BRU – 5 March 2014
Army Community Service is a superb place to work. Their primary mission/function is to help military members and their families with a broad range of services that streamline day to day living, both abroad and domestically. It feels wonderful to be able to help people. It enables both the families and the military member to work and THRIVE in environments that could otherwise be daunting. They provide help with tasks from finding childcare, eateries, locations, familiarising yourself with a locality to a broad range of social services that deal with simple and complex matters of daily living. They provide activities that enable people to become a part of the community, and not become isolated. They provide aid in difficult situations, such as unexpected emergencies or family problems. They also provide help with Permanent Change of Station activities (moving). My coworkers were the kind of people you would want to work with anywhere, anytime - all awesome!
My tasks were primarily administrative, advertising, support types tasks. There really didn't seem to be a 'hardest part', the most enjoyable part was definitely dealing with all the wonderful people who came through our doors.
Budget cuts have severly downsized services.
