Ability to learn a new language, travel and arrange events
Victoria location
Competitive salary

Our client, a huge global technology company, is on the search for Personal Assistant to support the Group CEO. The company is based in stunning offices in a brand new building within Victoria, where there are over 60 people and two other PAs who work collaboratively and are really friendly. The culture of the office is professional, upbeat and they like to employ people who are positive and passionate about the company. 

The company is Japanese owned, and whilst the majority of the internal stakeholders are English speaking, the CEO would like his PA to be able to speak conversational Japanese and tuition lessons will be provided free of charge, as this will greatly help him deal with both internal and external stakeholders, so it is essential that the ideal PA is willing to do this.


The CEO is South African and is extremely charismatic, driven and successful. He is looking for a Personal Assistant who will work in partnership with him.

The typical PA duties will include but are not limited to the following;

  • Extensive diary and inbox management
  • Arranging regular and complex international travel as the CEO travels 90% of the time
  • Flexibility to travel with the CEO on occasion to arrange events and host clients
  • Arranging events including Christmas and summer parties, client, or internal conferences
  • Preparation and formatting of presentations and providing high-level reporting
  • Minute taking 
  • Ad-hoc duties

They are looking for a PA who is upbeat, professional and has proven experience and longevity supporting a Global Head or CEO ideally within a technology firm, professional services or financial services firm. Having an understanding of the latest technology and being advanced with the full Microsoft Office Suite is essential. You must also be willing to learn Japanese and having a passion or understanding of the culture would be a great advantage!


The salary for this PA role is very competitive and is between 45 – 55k but this will very much depend on experience. The core hours are 9 – 5:30pm. However please note that due to the seniority of this position you will be required to be on call outside of hours for any emergency issues whilst the CEO is travelling. 

In addition to the base salary you can also expect to receive:

  • FREE Tuition for Japanese lessons
  • Annual discretionary bonus
  • Pension
  • Healthcare
  • Life insurance
  • Childcare vouchers
  • Bicycle vouchers
