Job of the week: EA / Business Assistant to CEO – Covent Garden – Up to £65k + Bens

This is one mighty role needing some big shoes to fill it!! But boy will it be rewarding.  Our client’s CEO is a high profile individual with a hugely successful career within this field.

He is meticulous about all things so needs someone with an acute eye for detail. He is looking for a right hand person who will want to get to know the business inside out and be able to assist him in more than a PA capacity. You will need to be able to evaluate incoming emails and telephone calls and deal with them in context of the CEOs forthcoming plans.

Being totally proactive and underpinning this gentleman is key to the success of this role.

He in turn is a fun, inspirational and rewarding person to work for.

You will also assist his wife who is lovely and not demanding. This CEO has no definition between private and corporate work as far as his EA is concerned. What needs to be done needs to be done!
Whilst their head office is in London you will be required to meet him at another site at least twice a week so a driving licence and your own transport would be a pre-requisite.
Hours here are pretty standard 8.30 – 5.00 but with a great degree of flexibility when needed.


Warm and welcoming, you will show ability to be in control, ability to be a first line of defence and deal with things with autonomy. You will be intelligent and business focussed ideally of graduate calibre. You will have worked in large international blue chip organisations and understand the complexities of working for a CEO in charge of a group of companies.

You should be used to giving full in depth support (our client likes weather reports along with his travel documents!) You must be used to working for a perfectionist who is relentless in his pursuit of furthering the already great brand reputation this company has.

You should also be able to show that you have worked for an MD that has Brand Presence in the public arena and can deal with all this entails.

This is a very finite brief and we would ask you to consider all factors before applying. The salary denotes that this is a senior role and you must have all of the above qualities and experience to apply. Please do not apply if you have not worked in a similar role.
