Assistant to the Chief Executive
The Assistant to the Chief Executive post provides administrative support in all areas of the Chief Executive's work, including in his role of supporting the Board. The Assistant books travel and meetings, takes minutes of a number of management meetings, and deals with the Chief Executive's correspondence. We have a very busy Chief Executive with a full diary liable to short notice changes, and weekly national travel. We need an Assistant who can plan ahead, anticipate his needs, take the initiative in seeking ways to maximise his efficiency, and pay attention to detail in a very fast moving environment. It will not be essential to have experience as an assistant to apply for this role, but you will have to be a very organised person and have experience of working quickly and changing your priorities at a moment's notice. If you have experience of managing calendars and diaries and of administration of meetings then you will be at an advantage, but any transferable administrative skills at a high level will prepare you for this role.
