  • Perform basic administrative tasks, including document management and managing communications amongst other service providers who support the Executive. 
  • Attend meetings with the Executive to record and follow up on key actions.

Personal administration support

  • Support the planning of personal events, including guest list confirmation, catering and entertainment.
  • Support the Executive to host guests and VIP’s at events and throughout their travel.
  • Make bookings on behalf of the Executive to meet personal needs, ensuring there is no conflict with professional activities.

The You:

  • You have exceptional organisational skills that can be used to coordinate all facets of the Executives life. 
  • You are agile and can work in high change and high pressure environments with creative teams.

  • You have a design background or demonstrated focus for aesthetics. Applicants with experience and a passion for interior/event design will be highly regarded.
  • You’re capable of performing a diverse range of administration tasks autonomously and efficiently.
