Superb Executive Assistant maternity cover has become available in a top global Private Equity firm – due to the need to ‘hit the ground running', the client will be giving preference to applicants with Private Equity/alternative investment experience. This role is to support a high-achieving, business-leading Managing Partner, who has a collaborative and trusting approach to working with their Executive Assistant.

You will be a driven, team-focused and gregarious Executive Assistant, who enjoys working with high achievers – this company are at the absolute top of their field, and this MP's team is one of the busiest. You will join to support the MP with light support to the two they work most closely with, also top investment professionals – the have their own EAs, but need someone flexible, intelligent and proactive who understands that sometimes work is project-based and needs a colligate approach to diary and travel management.

As this is supporting at Managing Partner level, your profile will be immediately high, as will the pace – job satisfaction guaranteed. As well as managing the MP's back to back diary, you will be an organisational/stakeholder linchpin across the global business, exceuting various projects and making sure that the MP's commitments are fulfilled to the highest standard.

The office of around 100 in London is typical of highly successful investment firms – full of exceptional people, with ‘work hard, play hard' attitudes, all team players, who give of themselves to help the company stay at the top. You will be the sort to thrive in such an environment – autonomous work, no hand-holding.

Duties will include all core tasks, plus senior stakeholder liaison to ensure both deal and internal work is completed outstandingly:

• Diary coordination for one, with flexibility to help others travelling with, etc.

• Meeting logistics and full preparation, bios, company research, etc.

• International travel management – you will be comfortable with very complex, multi-stop travel.

• Internal and client liaison at the highest level.

• Administration – you will be a highly organised multi-tasker who gains satisfaction from seeing everything in its place – CRM updates, filing etc.

• Willing and keen to help wherever needed – when the MP is travelling for longer periods, there will be a chance to get involved in the work of other teams to expose you to further parts of the exciting business.

This is a busy role, requiring someone who enjoys thinking ahead – you will be able to work out the 'what ifs' before they happen, provide a seamless and sophisticated service at senior level and demonstrate an understanding of the aims of the associates, enabling you to make strong decisions on their behalves.

Experience-wise, preference needs to be given to those with very strong and recent Private Equity/alternative investment Executive Assistant experience, including work at a high level and demonstrated ability to manage complex travel. This is a fantastic opportunity to spend over a year with an outstanding firm, and add a hugely well-respected name to your CV.
