The role will provide full PA support to the MD allowing her to continue to develop the business and take forward her high touch approach to client and supplier relationships. The MD has had an illustrious career in banking and finance before moving to run this established business and is looking for a right hand person to work alongside her as the comp any continues to expand. This will mean that the PA will have a much more involved role, for example no just sorting the inbox but actively managing the incoming mail, sorting, distributing to the wider team for input of follow up and drafting the initial responses to much correspondence. You will therefore need a confident and eloquent written style and be able to work with the SMT and wider team to gather the information necessary to pull other the responses on behalf of the SLT, weighing the information to suggest a finite possible number of actions to take. Alongside this the role will prepare all board paperwork, collating and producing reports from the business units and ensuring that the full paperwork goes out to board in ample time for meetings.

• Experience of dealing with or preparing board papers
• Solid EA and PA skills including expenses, diary and inbox management, travel management
