Executive Assistant


Up to £55,000


Do you want to work for a global investment firm with a brilliant reputation? Are you looking to take the next step in your professional career? Then this newly created Executive Assistant role within the Private Equity division of a highly respected firm is the position for you. This team has a small family feel, so a can-do attitude and the passion to muck-in where needed is essential. We are looking for an Executive Assistant with a high level of commitment, attention to detail and overall a strong but friendly individual who is a great team player and genuinely cares about making the day run smoothly – a forward thinker is a must! 


Our client is looking for a confident and polished Executive Assistant to support a senior managing director whilst he settles in and builds his own profile and network, so relationship building and management will be essential. In the early stages this will be a 1:1 role, but in the short term they do expect the team to grow to around four who may eventually need further support on a lighter touch. Although this EA role is fairly traditional, it is incredibly busy and will encompass anything from arranging travel and managing diaries, to processing expenses and general ad-hoc duties.

What we want from you:

  • Experienced EA with excellent and demonstrated diary and travel management skills
  • Extremely proactive
  • High attention to detail
  • Exceptional people and influencing skills
  • Brilliant and effective communicator
  • Unflappable under pressure
  • Resourceful and a creative problem-solver
  • Immaculately presented
  • Demonstrate longevity within previous roles
  • Private Equity experience highly desired


As well as offering an extremely competitive salary of up to £55K, depending on experience, our client offers amazing benefits, including:

  • Healthcare
  • Season ticket loan
  • Gym subsidy
  • Pension
  • Discretionary and competitive bonus
  • The hours are 9am-6pm

If you think you'd be the perfect Executive Assistant, don't waste time and apply today!
