This is a true right hand Assistant role, a position operating at the most senior level, attending meetings, international travel and at times, attending on the CEO's behalf. The Founder is looking for an experienced, polished and credible degree educated EA to provide wide ranging support; initially the scheduling and proactive diary and travel management, and certainly additional wider duties, such arranging and attending global board meetings, client/senior contact liaison as well as following up action points and liaison with direct reports.

You will be responsible for:

- Being the first point of contact and handling all communication
- International travel arrangements and creating itineraries
- Attending business trips abroad
- Managing the inbox, responding and handling matters where appropriate.
- Proactive diary management and ensuring follow up on all meetings
- Attending business meetings, taking minutes, distributing and following up on action points
- Collecting and collating reports in advance of meetings
- Managing project timelines ensuring receipt of information required
- Carrying out research
- Processing expenses
- Assisting with ad hoc projects

This role suits a well educated, credible and EA with presence and the ability to operate with ease at senior level. Ideally with Financial Services experience or similar, you will be self-motivated, energetic, highly organised and proactive. You will have a client facing approach, and be a natural problem solver, always rising to the challenge. Expectations will be high, and you will be someone who thrives in a high demand environment.
