Requirements
  • Prior experience in a start-up environment, ideally as an Assistant, Analyst or Associate working directly with CEO or Founders.
  • Excellent organizational and time management skills, with the ability to prioritize and multitask effectively.
  • Strong attention to detail and accuracy, ensuring exceptional quality in all deliverables.
  • Strong academics - bachelor’s or master’s degree in business administration, entrepreneurship, or a related field.
  • Previous experience as an executive assistant to start-up founders is desirable.
  • Ability to multitask effectively, and comfortable working in agile everchanging environments.
  • Proficiency in Microsoft Office Suite and various project management tools.
  • Demonstrated ability to think critically, solve problems, and make informed decisions.
  • Highly motivated, self-directed, and able to work independently as well as collaboratively.
  • Exceptional interpersonal skills – oral and written.
Responsibilities
  • Help manage the CEO’s priorities with a constantly moving, granular, dynamic schedule across a range of competing priorities and stakeholders.
  • Ensure the CEO is prepped for his day – doing deep dives and profiles ahead of meetings, and ensuring internal content is clean, logical, and ready for his consumption.
  • Maintain oversight of the diary in relation to CEOs priorities, working in partnership with the EA to ensure logical, prioritised execution that allows CEO to operate at full capacity.
  • Able to fully step in and execute diary management during EA absences, and / or on ad hoc basis throughout day where it enables efficient operation.
  • Book complex, international travel that can change at a moment’s notice and require deep dives into travel logistics, while keeping the company and the founder’s family office aligned and in sync.
  • Ensure processes and outcomes are optimised across all areas of CEO’s life: including business, family, travel, etc.
  • Be ready to jump on ‘left field’ tasks at a moment’s notice – whether that’s sourcing a jacket for an unexpected formal lunch, fixing an iPad that’s having technical problems, or finding contact information for someone not spoken to in years.
