Job description

The Executive Assistant helps to ensure the efficient and effective function of the WFSA senior leadership, including support to the Chief Executive, the Board and the Council. Join our small but busy team and help us to achieve our vision of universal access to safe anaesthesia.

5 billion of the world's 7 billion people do not have access to safe, affordable, timely surgery and anaesthesia. 17 million people die each year from surgically treatable conditions (that's more than 4 times the number who die from HIV, Tuberculosis and Malaria combined).

If that sounds wrong to you and you are an experienced Executive Assistant / Personal Assistant with a desire to make a difference then this could be your perfect job.
