The right candidate is currently pursuing a Biology-oriented Science degree and you are on the second or third year of your Bachelor's. You are detail-oriented, structured, a fast learner, service minded, possess strong communication skills and you have an out-going personality. Further, to assist the Shipping Coordinator, you must be self-propelled and be able to take initiative while always performing your tasks with a keen eye on the detail. Most importantly, you work with a high level of engagement.
