Up to £45K depending on experience + excellent benefits


We are recruiting a top-notch Executive Assistant to join one of VWA's longest-standing clients - this client holds a highly reputable and established name within the investment management industry.

Kindly note, this is a temp-to-perm opportunity and applicants should be either immediately available to start, or on notice of up to 2 weeks maximum.

Headquartered in the US, this firm has grown over the last few years and prides itself on recruiting team orientated individuals, who are genuinely warm and approachable in their manner and have a professional and strong work ethic. The environment has been described in the past as non-hierarchical and collaborative and they look for well-presented individuals with a real 'can do' and positive attitude.

Supporting a small (but growing) team of investment professionals, this Executive Assistant will be responsible for:

  • Gatekeeping across the team
  • Effective diary management
  • Scheduling and preparation of meetings
  • Arranging travel, typically across Europe
  • Expenses management
  • Other administration as required.

This is a firm with high standards of their Executive Assistants, and this team will need someone who is switched-on, detail orientated and exercises good judgements. The pace can be very fast, with changing priorities and therefore needs strong prioritisation skills and the ability to manage a varied workload calmly and to deadlines.

Ideal candidates will have experience from financial services or another corporate environment.

Core hours are 9am to 6pm with the possibility of extra as/when the team has the need. There is the expectation that emails are looked at outside of office hours, and for anything urgent to be responded to.

Salary will be based on experience up to c.£45K, and as a permanent employee the position comes with excellent benefits; including, the best in private healthcare, pension scheme, gym membership and 22 days holiday plus 3 personal days, lunch allowance, a well-stocked kitchen and a discretionary bonus.
