Executive assistant onefinestay
THIS JOB HAS EXPIRED Magic maker
This role is a little like a Wagner opera: intense, challenging and a bit crazy. The right person will have the wit to act quickly and gracefully under pressure, along with a high level of emotional intelligence to anticipate the needs of a couple of busy execs in a way that quickly becomes second nature.
onefinestay is on a tear at the moment, which means that our calendars are hectic, and increasingly pockmarked by international travel. The right person will be comfortable with this type of messy and intricate calendar support, having had significant experience handling senior execs in other high performing organizations.
The person will also be comfortable with ambiguity, because we?re still a start-up and so there?s still plenty of it. And there?s a good deal of trust and responsibility to cope with, too. Handling board materials, personnel files and commercially sensitive materials, the right candidate will be comfortable keeping counsel.
Finally, the role extends beyond calendar support. We?re ideally looking for someone who can pitch in around the office, in areas such as travel scheduling, events coordination, and from time to time to take on projects in other domains.
While this job is definitely not for the faint-hearted, one thing?s beyond doubt: it?s a once-in-a-lifetime chance of a front row seat at the most fascinating show in town.
