£50 - £60K

Our client, a world-leading global investment firm with offices in London's vibrant West End, are looking for a proactive, adaptable and team-oriented Executive Assistant to join their Credit Team on a maternity cover contract basis.

This EA role will involve providing support to the Credit Team up to MD level, with responsibilities including (but not limited to):

  • Complex diary management
  • Arranging international travel (lockdown dependent)
  • Gatekeeping
  • Building and maintaining excellent internal and external relationships
  • Ad-hoc administration

The ideal candidate for this role will have at least 5 years' experience in an Executive Assistant role within financial services. Strong Microsoft Office Suite skills are essential and you must have excellent time management skills in order to manage a busy workload.

Salary for this Executive Assistant role is up to £60K and comes with excellent benefits.

The start date for this role will be the 28th of June for a minimum of 6 months. Due to the current situation this role is likely to begin remotely, returning to the central London location when lockdown is lifted.
