A unique maternity cover opportunity has just arisen for an experienced PA to join a global firm dedicated to investing in businesses across the poorest regions of Africa and South Asia. If you are passionate about working for an organisation that makes a difference then this is the role for you.

The chosen candidate will be supporting the head of the team as well as five other associates. They will be working alongside 1 other PA who will be supporting the 6 remaining associates in the team of 12. This is a really lovely and collaborative role where you will feel fully supported in an extremely collegiate environment. It’s a fantastic place to work.

The ideal candidate really needs to hit the ground running so previous experience in a similar position is essential.
