The most wonderful opportunity has arisen for a Marketing and Events Co-ordinator to join an absolutely top tier professional services consultancy based in stunning offices in the very heart of Central London.
The company are absolutely at the top of their game; progressive, successful and deserving of their incredible reputation. They are seeking to recruit a committed, dynamic person to join their Marketing function. Your role will comprise 40% events - incorporating full end to end management of event logistics and management of valuable supplier relationships, along with liaising with key internal and external stakeholders.
The remainder of your role will encompass general marketing specialist support, including but not limited to planning and execution of commercial campaigns across various different types of media, creating personal marketing plans for key management within the business, and providing strategic marketing support to key business areas.
I'm looking for someone who has at least four years experience ideally within a professional services environment. You must have good IT skills and strong knowledge of CRM and mass mailing software.
You must have a proven ability to think strategically and the ability to influence and liaise with senior individuals across the business. You'll have excellent project and events management and organisational skills - and be able to demonstrate these - as well as a clear commitment to delivering and executing high-end events.
I am hoping to shortlist this role this week, as we're looking for an immediate start - so please get in touch immediately if you'd like to be considered for this amazing opportunity.
£40K + Relocation Costs
An extraordinary opportunity has arisen for a fantastic PA to support the hugely charismatic founder of a media and marketing agency, based in Dubai.
A mix of private and business experience is essential for this role: the two facets of this position are management of the private life and business support of this incredibly hardworking entrepreneur. The company has a small London office so some travel might be required, but in essence you'll be the lynchpin of the small - but rapidly growing - Dubai office, providing critical business and personal support to the founder and occasionally management team.
I'm looking for a polished, bright and very ambitious self-starter. You must be charismatic, confident and have exemplary attention to details along with a solid career history with a minimum of 3 years PA experience. You'll be working in a small team so you'll need to be self-sufficient, and happy to roll up your sleeves and get on with whatever needs doing. Duties will include the usual - diary management, travel, gatekeeping, general business administrative support and lifestyle management - and this position has the potential to grow and develop hugely as the company is expanding at pace.
My client is open to either candidates currently based in Dubai, or someone who would like to relocate from London. If relocating, relocation costs would be covered - but it's essential to note that this is a long term role where stability is critical for the principal, so you must have a solid career history and be looking for longevity. This will be well suited to an energetic, go-getter who wants to be part of a multi-national, sociable and buzzy office.
This is an ASAP start. Send your CV to Victoria@sidekicks.london immediately!

The three core prongs to this position are: management of private life, running a single-person household and business support.
Private PA experience, international work experience, cultural exposure and a broad understanding of entrepreneurship, investing and arts will be instrumental in achieving a successful working relationship and allow you the opportunity to grow in responsibility over time.
If you are an entrepreneurially-minded Private PA, with a personal interest in the arts and/or philanthropy then apply now! Send your CV to Victoria@sidekicks.london immediately.
