From the beginning, Starbucks set out to be a different kind of company. One that not only celebrated coffee and the rich tradition, but that also brought a feeling of connection. We are known for developing extraordinary leaders who share this passion and are guided by their service to others.

We’re looking for a self-driven and versatile Senior Administrative Assistant to join the Starbucks Finance Team.

They must possess the ability to perform a high volume of tasks with limited direction, independently solve problems and take on projects to improve processes.

The role will promote productivity and support execution of leaders and team goals and objectives, organize team meetings and events, support travel plans, and expense reports. They will also partner closely with the Corporate & Financial Services’ executive assistant and the broader Finance Support Team to help drive the rhythm of the business by aligning calendars, sharing best practices, and cascading communications.
