Executive Assistant


£40000 - £45000 per annum
Ref: 084105279  Date Posted:  30/01/2019
Highly successful founder-led Private Equity boutique seeks a proactive, warm and meticulous Executive Assistant. This will be a busy role supporting the Founder and the CFO, providing variety and a chance to take responsibility for involved financial administration, including shepherding of the firm's bank account, running payroll and other high-order tasks like paying vendors and senior staff.

This position combines support for two busy and inspiring professionals, both at the top of their field. The Founder, who is also Managing Partner, leads on fund-raising and deal activity, whilst the CFO ensures that the highly successful business runs without a hitch. Therein, this role can offer excellent diversity – busy core EA duties, excellent relationship-building opportunities with internal and external stakeholders and clients, financial administrative work, and more projects can grow.

In this Executive Assistant role, you will be a trusted linchpin, with numerous autonomous aspects to your task list. As such, it will be important for you to bring the following to the firm:

• Solid Executive Assistant experience in banking or private equity – you will be skilled in all facets of the core role, and enjoy providing high-level administrative support.

• A service-driven attitude – as an Executive Assistant, you will enjoy supporting your bosses with thought and care.

• A strong team spirit – this is a small office with a family feel, and everyone works together, including the three EAs.

• Exposure to financial operations/administration – you will have either assisted or had sole responsibility for duties like banking transactions, payroll, invoicing, PO raising, keeping budget spreadsheets, etc.

• A proven ability to self-direct in your work – whilst you will enjoy great working relationships with both Founder and CFO, there is no micro-management here, so you will be trusted with multiple workstreams and ongoing projects.

Not to be missed, this opportunity would be perfect for an Executive Assistant who is looking to transfer their big-company banking/private equity experience into a boutique, or someone who has been supporting senior people but for whom this represents a step up to Founder/CFO level.

This outstanding boutique can offer stability through their deal success, a friendly and professional work environment and excellent work/life balance – rarely will out of hours work be needed. Furthermore, the successful candidate will be offered a strong base with annual remuneration review, good benefits, and 10-20% bonus potential.

If you are looking for fantastic next step, where you can be fully utilised as an organiser, with superb team, apply without delay.
