As the Senior Executive Assistant to our Global CEO, you will support her in all aspects of her work across the Company’s British and Australian businesses, as well as other Board appointments, Advisory Panel responsibilities and advocacy (e.g. as a ‘tech for good’ and diversity champion) that she undertakes.

Our Global CEO engages with C-suite executives from industry, business and academic leaders, as well as government Ministers and senior civil servants.  You will need to be calm, confident, approachable and highly organised in dealing with all and any matters that may arise.

This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a growing, highly regarded global technical and management consultancy practice, focussed on delivering innovative solutions, through diverse teams and collaborative working.  If you’re a professional with high quality standards and attention to detail, that enjoys variety, is motivated by making a difference and being part of a successful, fast moving company that achieves results, you’ll thrive in and genuinely enjoy this role. 

As the Senior Executive Assistant you will:

  • Proactively plan and deliver a demanding schedule of UK and global commitments, including travel, meetings and communications;
  • In strictest confidence and with utmost discretion, liaise with the offices of ministers, directors and executives, providing background research, firming up agendas and producing Board and executive meeting packs and briefing notes as required;
  • Work calmly, effectively and positively to manage the demands and pressures of a busy diary, diverse business commitments and extensive international travel;
  • Rely on strong project management skills, working with and through other colleagues to deliver any complex requests and business initiatives assigned to you;
  • Monitor and track progress towards project deliverables and required results, reporting on relevant targets, metrics and performance indicators;
  • Make clear, pragmatic and manageable plans for delivery, using programme and project management disciplines.

Required Skills and Experience:

  • A confident and engaging communications style that is effective, pleasant and builds trust;
  • Excellent relationship building skills at all levels; up to and including with the offices of Ministers and C-suite executives;
  • Experience of working with project management methodologies, e.g. Agile or PRINCE2;
  • Previous experience as an EA to the CEO in a similar business or Project Management within professional services or technology sectors.

Additional Information:

If you feel that you’re a great fit for the job but don’t yet have all the required skills or experience, apply to us anyway.  If you’re the right person for us, have aptitude in those areas and the ambition to step up then we’ll train you! 

We ‘walk the talk’ about investing in people, developing the skills and confidence of our staff through our outstanding InformedACADEMY talent development programme.  The Company offers very competitive salaries and a flexible benefits package that includes pension, bonus scheme, paid sabbaticals, flexible working options and private health care.  If you’re keen to broaden your horizons even further, we offer global working experience via secondments or transfer to our Australian offices in Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra.
