SENIOR EA TO SUPPORT FOUNDER OF GLOBAL TECH FIRM

An incredible opportunity has arisen for an exceptional, top-notch Senior Executive Assistant with extensive C-suite experience to be the right-hand support to the Founder of a global tech company. The global company has set up an international HQ in London and is currently recruiting key roles to establish themselves as a global leader in their field and to ensure that the growth is a huge success.

As the gatekeeper and main support to the Founder, the ideal candidate would be highly professional, dedicated and able to hit the ground running and thrive in a fast-paced environment. An incredibly driven, busy and hard-working individual, the Founder would require a real right-hand EA who can operate at an exceptionally high level at all times. Predominantly focused on supporting the Founder within a professional capacity, private assistance may also be required and local knowledge of the area would be beneficial. Additionally, you will be representing the CEO office in all external interactions.

This is an incredible opportunity for an experienced EA who can be a reliable source of support to the Founder during this exciting time - you are someone who holds yourself to exemplary standards and prides yourself on being always well-polished and professional. You will be impeccably organised, have exacting attention to detail, be diligent in your work and go above and beyond when needed. Loyalty and longevity are also key as they’re looking for someone to commit long-term and grow in the role.

Based in the office Monday to Friday from 9am - 5pm, this role requires flexibility to work outside of these hours as the principal frequently travels across multiple time zones. For the right candidate, this role could be open to an individual needing to relocate from another part of the UK, or abroad.

CORE RESPONSIBILITIES:
• Proactively planning and managing the Founder’s diary with the ability to make quick decisions and react with urgency when necessary.
• Extensive travel planning, including but not limited to: hotels, transfers, flight bookings, visas, detailed itineraries etc.
• Communication and diary management for the Founder across multiple time zones.
• Liaise with clients and communicate across all levels, in the absence of the principal.
• Project management and conducting research required.
• Processing business expenses and providing full business administrative support.
• Occasional event planning, organisation and execution.
• Preparing for and scheduling meeting agendas.
• Ad-hoc personal duties.

ESSENTIAL CRITERIA:
• At least 8 years of experience as an EA, with proven longevity in your previous roles.
• Holding a degree level education or equivalent would be strongly preferred.
• Excellent command and fluency of the English language.
• The ability for basic communication in Mandarin would be beneficial, but not essential.
• Brilliant communications skills and the ability to liaise at all levels.
• High level of confidentiality and the ability to handle sensitive information.
• Hands-on, hardworking and personable demeanour with a good sense of humour.
• Loyal and dedicated, polished, professional and an ambassador for the business.
• Able to pre-empt the principal’s needs and work proactively.
• Excellent tech skills.
• Eligibility to work in the UK.
• Extremely organised and responsive to the needs of the CEO.
• Excellent checkable references.
