Finance / Executive Assistant


We’re looking for a proactive and detail-oriented Finance / Executive Assistant to take on a 12-month maternity contract at a family office based in Mayfair. Our client is a a boutique investment firm with offices based across Europe.


The ideal candidate will be someone who really enjoys working with numbers, is analytically focused, and is a whizz with MS Office tools (especially Excel). You’ll need to be confident working in a fast-paced setting, with constantly changing priorities, and be proactive, always thinking one step ahead. As it’s a very cosmopolitan office, there are multiple languages spoken, so German would be beneficial, but not essential. To be successful you’ll need to have similar experience previously, with a strong background in accountancy or finance, and ideally within a family office.


You would be working as part of the Family Office side of the business which supports the Founder’s personal investments. It’s a really lovely environment to work in, as although you’ll be supporting the Head of the Family Office, you’ll be based in the same offices as your colleagues in the investment firm side of the business, so will have their camaraderie and support. As the Finance / Executive Assistant, your role will roughly be split as follows:

Finance Assistant support (60%)

  • Weekly investment portfolio overview
  • Managing of accounts receivable and payables
  • Liquidity overview
  • Weekly bank reconciliation
  • Other ad hoc-administrative responsibilities

EA support (40%)

  • Managing a busy diary
  • Arranging international travel itineraries
  • Preparing expenses
  • Other ad-hoc administrative responsibilities surrounding the Founder’s charitable foundation


  • 12-month Fixed Term Maternity cover starting in December or early January paying up to £45k dependent on experience.
  • Pension 
  • 25 days holiday
  • Office based (unless government advice dictates otherwise)
  • Hours are 9am – 5.30pm

This role won’t be around long so waste no time in applying!
