EXPERIENCED EA TO SUPPORT UHNWI – OXFORDSHIRE

This is a fantastic opportunity for a highly skilled and experienced Private and Business Executive Assistant to support an incredibly successful and busy UHNWI in the entertainment industry. We are looking for a committed, efficient, and personable Executive Assistant who can work in a dynamic, creative environment to support this high-profile Principal across all areas of his personal and business life.

The ideal candidate will become the gatekeeper for the Principal and must have the ability to understand and prioritise what is important to discuss in a very limited amount of time. You will be reactive but calm, tenacious and confident, ultimately allowing the principal to focus on his businesses and for the smooth running of the environment around them.

The ability to manage complex and ever-changing diaries is essential for this role and you will have excellent knowledge of Apple products and be tech savvy. A proportion of the tasks will be related to global business; therefore, the EA must manage their time effectively, with the awareness of time differences and international office opening hours. You will be hard-working, honest, kind and assertive and be a natural problem solver with the ability to use your initiative.

The role is mainly based in Oxfordshire, but you may from time to time be based at other offices within the company, and different locations. Core working hours are 9am-6pm, but you will be required to have great flexibility outside of these hours as well as being on-call over weekends and evenings to ensure all of the principal’s needs are met.

RESPONSIBILITIES WILL INCLUDE (BUT ARE NOT LIMITED TO):
• Acting on behalf of the principal where necessary and being his gatekeeper and right hand
• Liaising with professional advisers including agents, publicists, lawyers, in-house accounts team and consultants as well as the wider business team
• Extensive diary management
• Arranging all business travel, including flights, transfers, accommodation etc.
• Ensuring all arrangements are clearly communicated to the wider team and household
• Managing memberships/subscriptions with industry bodies/organisations as and when needed
• Ensuring the principal’s confidentiality at all times
• Liaising with other staff members to ensure the smooth running of the Principal’s business life and to some extent, their private life
• Organising birthday, Christmas and thank-you cards

ESSENTIAL CRITERIA:
• Extensive prior experience working for a Senior Executive or UHNW Principal as an EA
• Highly organised, efficient and able to manage a busy workload
• Flexibility in terms of working hours and locations
• Critical reasoning and analytical skills
• Strong communication skills – both written and spoken
• Excellent interpersonal and relationship management skills
• Collaborative team player with the ability to delegate
• Strong proactive prioritisation skills, including the ability to take independent action and consult as needed
• Full driving license
• Knowledge of Apple products/IT literate
• Able to exercise discretion
• Excellent checkable references
