Job Description

Are you a resourceful, motivated and highly organised EA?


Prospectus is thrilled to be working on behalf of a dynamic organisation supporting social cohesion across the UK, focusing youth participation.


As an Executive Assistant, you will support the organisation's CEO with a one-to-one working relationship that prioritises overlapping deadlines effectively and coordinates a wide portfolio of projects. You will play a key role of 'gatekeeper' and 'gateway' for the CEO, and take ownership for managing preparatory tasks such as briefings and agendas to ensure a smooth functioning workload for the CEO. The successful candidate will also work in partnership with the CEO, to research, prioritise and identify upcoming issues and work to offer solutions. In this expansive role you will also be trusted to represent the CEO across a variety of high profile stakeholders' relationships.


The ideal candidate will have an outstanding track record as an Executive Assistant, alongside a high degree of integrity. You will be comfortable running projects and have experience of working with internal and external communications in support of a high profile stakeholder. As a true solutions-driven individual, you will have the gravitas to work in partnership with the CEO and challenge where and when appropriate to ensure their success. The ideal candidate will have worked in consulting and/or have an exposure to working within government alongside an interest and affinity with the not for profit sector.


To apply, please submit a copy of your CV; cover letters are not required at this stage.
