Canary Wharf

£25000 - £35000 per annum
Ref: 084105146  Date Posted:  26/05/2021
Career-making Executive Assistant opportunity to support an inspiring, highly-regarded CEO, operating at the heart of a highly successful tech business with impressive, very strong international client base. With a large recent injection of investment and more to come, growth is number one on the agenda, and the CEO needs a right hand to execute this plus help to continue delivering client service in an outstanding manner.

The CEO is extremely hands on, passionate, and involved in everything the international business does – they want the Executive Assistant to mirror this. A leader in every sense - inspiring, supportive, and much-loved, everyone wants and needs the CEO’s time, so you will be relied upon as a gatekeep and conduit, trusted entirely to make judgements and act on their behalf, as a deputy. Having an Executive Assistant who can seamlessly and avidly represent both personal and corporate brand is paramount to the CEO.

Superb firm culture: Collegiate, ambitious, flat. There are no 'us and them' attitudes between execs and others - team comes first, and everyone works and plays hard together.

It isn’t possible to confine the exciting variety and challenge of this role on paper, so please apply for the chance to hear more; but, to share a few insights:
• You will be trusted to entirely manage the business and personal life of the 24/7, high-energy, hugely successful CEO.
• You will be gatekeeper, ear-to-the-ground and second-in-command – helping the CEO to manage their many direct reports and related teams. This will include supporting the execution of growth plans with involvement in HR; this element of the job will resemble a Chief of Staff role.
• Preparing for and attending meetings with the CEO – plus copious autonomous client contact.
• Complex, academically stimulating work such as research on potential acquisitions for non-organic company growth, involved project work once you understand the product, etc. The sky is the limit regarding involvement.
• Investor liaison and reporting.
• Marketing support – proofreading pitch documents, suggesting improvements, etc.
• Plus anything else you find is needed – there is tonnes of potential for growth.

The CEO is looking for someone who embodies all of the qualities of an outstanding Executive Assistant (organised, helpful, fervour for the job, etc.), but also someone with:
• A strong academic background/proven ability to operate in an intellectually stimulating environment.
• An interest in business – hunger to learn about both the tech product and investment activity, getting involved in projects, adding value.
• A sense of fun and passion for teamwork.
• An appreciation that every top C-Suite role involves a keenness to support the business as a whole, which can involve the most glamorous of tasks, but also requires sleeves to be rolled up.

With years of strong performance under its belt, longevity at this firm is also impressive. There are great internal relationships, and execs foster a supportive work environment, making this a real one-off opportunity.  Apply with haste.
