INCREDIBLE OPPORTUNITY FOR A PRIVATE PA FOR HNWI

We are recruiting for a highly experienced, loyal Private Personal Assistant to support an ultra-high-net-worth individual in Zurich, Switzerland. A right-hand role, you will provide world-class support to the principal across all areas of her private and family life, as well as oversee the smooth running of her multiple households and staff globally.

The principal is looking for a right-hand confidant, thus you will be her go-to for all matters and will work to pre-empt the principal’s needs and exceed her expectations. You will play an integral part in the management of her day-to-day lifestyle administration, which includes liaising with banks and handling all financial and tax documents, as well as overseeing her properties and the maintenance contracts for these six residences.

A hybrid role, based predominantly out of the home office in Zurich, you will assist with all lifestyle management, household management and refurbishments, travel coordination and booking, personal shopping, and management of household staff (chef, housekeepers, gardener, butler etc.), overseeing household finances, managing contractors, administration and errand running. This is very much an all-round role with varied duties and requires a great deal of flexibility.

Our client is looking for a loyal, trustworthy and dedicated PA who she can rely on wholly to ensure the job gets done. The successful candidate will have a “can-do” attitude, and be committed and flexible in their approach. A warm and friendly disposition, you will be approachable and have the ability to remain calm and professional at all times. Discretion is of absolute importance, as well as the ability to be an ambassador for the principal at all times. Our client has a great love for dogs, and they are of huge importance in her life – so this role is only open to dog-friendly applicants.

This is a live-out position, and therefore only suited to candidates with EU residency who live near Zurich. Usual working hours are 9am – 5pm Monday to Friday, with flexibility required over weekends when necessary. Occasional overseas travel may be required also.

ESSENTIAL CRITERIA:
• Prior Private PA experience, ideally in a similar role supporting a UHNW principal or in a private family office
• A strong background in household management
• Fluency in German or Swiss German to mother tongue level and fluency in English
• A quick learner and a quick thinker who can work effectively
• Very adaptive, proactive and reactive
• Excellent organisational skills
• Trustworthy, loyal and discreet
• Personable with excellent communication style
• Unflappable and able to remain calm under pressure
• Positive ‘can-do’ attitude, driven to overcome any hurdles faced
• Highly independent with the ability to work without direction
• A great team player
• Located within commutable distance to Zurich, or willingness to relocate
• Eligibility to live and work in the EU
• Excellent checkable references

If this sounds of interest, and you meet the essential criteria, then please apply within or get in touch to find out more.
