  • Relaxed office culture. Structure without red tape, opportunity for projects!

The Opportunity

Partnering with this CEO in true 1:1 fashion, will require the successful candidate to be intuitive, loyal, hands on and flexible. This Executive is accustomed to taking direction from his Assistant, and is more introverted in his style. Drawing information out of him, and working in line with his idiosyncrasies will be key. Whilst managing a busy diary and travel schedule, you will also be the most senior administrative professional in the Australian business. Meaning, you play a role with preparing board packs, communicating with the SLT and mentoring junior staff. This role will not be 9-5, however will not require excessive weekend work or to be on call 24-7. Your aptitude to get the job done and your eagerness to contribute however, to the progressive nature of this business – is what will be key.
The Role

Day to day, your role will be coordination and administration focused, focused on getting this CEO to each and every meeting on time, with all the materials required. When the CEO is travelling, your time will be spent on SLT projects and personal tasks. Specifically, the responsibilities include:

  • Domestic and international travel coordination;
  • Expense management;
  • Board meeting coordination, preparation and execution;
  • Managing the priorities of the Senior Leadership Team;
  • Organising company-wide events and briefings;
  • Assisting with management of junior administration staff;
  • Occasional PA tasks as required.

The Expertise

To be considered for this position, you will possess a minimum of 6-10 years’ experience working as an Executive Assistant, ideally at C’Suite level. If you are currently working for a large corporate, at EGM or SLT level, that will also be considered. You will be proactive and energetic in your communication, yet measured and careful in your execution. You will not require a dynamic environment in order to be effective; your priority is the CEO. Working in a true 1:1 sense will see you completely control the efficiency and communication coming from the CEO’s office; and in doing so have the ability to truly influence investor results and the future success of this business. Driven, meticulous when it comes to detail, and highly professional; you will be looking for an opportunity to own your role, utilise your commercial EA skills and truly impact company performance.
