PA/EA

£36,000 - £38,000

A super innovative, creatively-minded consultancy firm is looking for an experienced and confident PA/EA to join their ever expanding team.

This is a really varied, all round role. You’ll be working with two consultants, helping them to meet and exceed client needs by providing really first-class support, both to the consultants internally as well as external, client facing work.

Responsibilities will include (but are certainly not limited to!):

  • Very complex diary management, scheduling and travel including working to tight deadlines across multiple time zones.
  • Lots of client liaison, acting as a key interface between clients and consultants as well as the wider business.
  • Managing clients including scheduling, finance management, revenue forecasting and tracking projects
  • Implementing processes, templates and streamlining existing systems
  • Working closely with a junior PA to delegate and best support the consultants and the business as a whole.

Because of the variety of this role, at least 2 solid years PA /EA experience is an absolute must.

This is an amazing company of really bright, enthusiastic people who are not only super sociable but take a real pride in what they are doing and moving the company forward.
