About our Client:
A highly regarded professional services firm, our client is a sought after employer with state of the art offices, regular social events and a work hard play hard philosophy. Their plans for 2020 and beyond are big and exciting and the team is growing fast.
About the Opportunity:
Supporting a respected Chief Operations Officer (COO) on a journey of growth, this Executive Assistant position will be joining the heart of the organisation and a group of smart, hardworking people who value teamwork, integrity and curiosity. Providing support to the COO both on day to day matters and longer term strategic projects, you’ll help maintain momentum and focus through a period of rapid scale, optimising your time and focus for things that truly carry the biggest positive impact both for the COO and wider team. You’ll provide high level administrative and executive support as well as administratively support the executive team. You’ll provide business analysis and participate in meetings to support and identify key issues while following up key recommendations. You’ll provide research, analysis and report development as require4d, prepare materials and documentation and take minutes in board meetings. You’ll prepare board papers, work on board meeting coordination and work with the COO on corporate governance. You’ll also assist in diary management and help to prioritise workload and meetings, and coordinate travel arrangements.
With previous experience in a similar role and a proven track record of providing outstanding support to executive level management, you’ll have experience in management consulting, project management, business analysis or government/ political/ professional services support. Ideally you will have a strong business acumen as some of your responsibilities will include dealing with company financials and assisting with commercial documents, and you’ll have strong experience with the Microsoft Office Suite. With strong analysis and report drafting experience, you’ll also have excellent interpersonal communication and writing skills as well as detailed minute taking, facilitation and presentation experience and a confidence to convey opinions and influence the COO as required. With sound judgement, professionalism, a positive demeanour and an ability to maintain the highest level of confidentiality, you’ll also be comfortable dealing with all senior executives and external stakeholders and have the initiative and drive to undertake work with limited supervision and be able to prioritise your workload to meet changing demands.
About the Perks:
United by a strong set of shared values, continuous learning is part of this company’s identity as a team and they truly invest in their people to ensure every staff member has the autonomy to freely explore new ideas and have a voice in shaping the future of the business, whilst making sure that the work they do genuinely makes a difference.
