Executive Assistant / Team PA

3 months Fixed Term Contract (potentially ongoing)

International Investment Firm, Amsterdam

 

A leading Private Equity firm with global offices is searching for a fantastic Assistant to join their team in Amsterdam for at least 3 months, but most likely on an on-going basis.

If you’re a proactive, confident and gregarious candidate who has great communication skills – fluency in Dutch & English – and a history of working as an Assistant in an international firm, then please read on! 

 

THE CLIENT

 

My client is a global investment firm with offices based in the heart of Amsterdam and all across Europe, Asia and North America. They pride themselves on their values: being respectful, open, friendly, entrepreneurial, and they operate across a very flat structure. Of course, they have strong professional standards and high expectations.

 

THE ROLE

 

They’re looking for a fantastic Executive Assistant / Executive Team Assistant who can work with one other EA to help to support a Deal team of 5, and this will be for an initial period of 3 months, to start ASAP. 

If things remain very busy, your contract may be extended. 

The role will be extremely varied supporting the Directors mainly, plus some support to the Associates and cover for the EA to the Partner. 

The main tasks will include: extensive diary management, booking meetings and travel, processing expenses, being the first point of contact for all investors / portfolio companies, and any other ad-hoc administration.

 

THE CANDIDATE

 

Our client lives and breathes their values, and so they’re looking for someone who will do the same! This involves being respectful, open-minded, comfortable speaking your mind and being entrepreneurial in the way you solve problems. They have a flat structure and so you should be happy operating in a non-hierarchical environment.

You’ll have to be organised, creative, adaptable and a skilled problem-solver.

Forward-thinking, proactivity and adaptability is key with this role, as you’ll be working in an environment in which priorities can change daily.

Ideally they are looking for a candidate who has experience working in an international firm, and you must be able to speak English & Dutch fluently. 

 

THE DETAILS

 

They’re offering an initial 3-month Fixed Term Contract (this could be extended) and a working day of 09:00 - 18:00, Monday – Friday (with an earlier finish on a Friday!).

In exchange for your hard work, they are offering a competitive monthly salary and benefits package.
