With a decade of successful investing and over £2bn in assets under management, we partner with exceptional management teams to help them achieve extraordinary results. Our core values are Accountability, Empathy, and Ambition, which we embed into everything we do.

The Opportunity:

We are seeking an outstanding Executive Assistant to provide optimal support to our executive team and streamline their administrative responsibilities. This role requires a professional who has extensive experience assisting executives or highly successful individuals, ensuring their working lives run as efficiently as possible. The Executive Assistant will be responsible for organising multiple senior executives, bringing structure to the office pace, and driving schedules and projects to successful conclusions.

Project management skills, collaborative ability, proficiency in MS Office, and quick adaptability to new systems are crucial. In the first 90 days, the candidate should gain a thorough understanding of the firm, its people, and projects, understand executive’s communication preferences, establish themselves as a trusted partner and team player, and identify long-term value-adding opportunities. Performance after the first year will be measured by efficiency in managing complex diaries, accuracy, professionalism, smooth office operations, task management impact, proactive problem-solving, and value creation. Key strengths for the interview include natural organisational skills, ability to thrive in a fast-paced environment, independence, a proactive attitude, team player readiness, complex scheduling expertise, meticulous attention to detail, professional communication, strong relationship-building skills, technical proficiency, discretion, integrity, positive attitude, and humility.
