Executive Assistant / PA

Boutique Investment Firm

Berlin

Are you working in or looking to relocate to Berlin?  We have just taken on a fantastic opportunity for a German speaking Executive Assistant / PA to be a valued member of the support team assisting investment professionals from Associate to MD level.  This is a global investment firm with a successful and growing office in Berlin.  

THE COMPANY  

The company is a highly respected global Investment firm with offices based in the US, Asia and London. It is a fantastic company to work for, with a great culture and emphasis on the development of their employees - demonstrated in its extremely low turnover of staff. The chosen PA will be supporting a small but friendly team who are hardworking, successful and also have a sense of humour!  So they are looking for someone who want to be a valued part of that culture and stay for the long term.  The benefits here are exceptional and you are rewarded very well for hard work and a job well done! 

THE ROLE

This is a traditional Executive Assistant / PA role but the chosen candidate will need to be able to think on their feet and use their initiative. You will be working alongside one other PA supporting a team and liaising with the PAs working in the London and New York branches.

Main duties:

  • Managing diaries and scheduling meetings for the executive team
  • Booking and arranging complex global travel itineraries
  • Liaising often with the US and London offices across time zones to arrange internal meetings and events
  • Ensuring meeting rooms are set up for VC and ready to receive important visitors to the office
  • Preparing documentation and presentations using Microsoft packages
  • Looking ahead to ensure proactive preparation for the Executives’ and team’s meetings, using excellent prioritisation skills
  • Ad-hoc projects when required

THE CANDIDATE

To be successful in this role you should be able to work at a fast pace confidently and calmly in an environment that demands the best of you at all times and can change direction at a moment’s notice.   Experience supporting individuals in a similar, fast paced industry is required. It’s very important that you are team-player with a muck-in attitude – no task too big or too small!   Fluency in both German and English are required.

THE BENEFITS & DETAILS

  • Generous discretionary bonus
  • 30 days’ holiday plus public holidays
  • Free lunch daily
  • Pension
