We are looking for an experienced PA / senior secretary, who will be a happy to wait for work until April 2107, and to then be available for 12 months.

You will need to be available for interview, without the need to give a period of notice, in April and if successful, we will want you to start almost immediately. So this is all about forward planning.

You will be working for an extremely busy Director, who will depend on you to organise his extremely busy and ever changing diary.

You will have full sight of his inbox and as he is often out of the office, you will be totally responsible for alerting him to anything urgent.

You will need to show us that you have the gravitas to manage this desk, with all the balls in the air and ensure that all of them fall into place… without fail!

This is a demanding role and we are only interested in experienced and capable candidates.
