What is an Executive Assistant?
An executive assistant is a high-level administrative support individual who typically works alongside the head of an organisation. They provide business support, including diary management, gate-keeping, client liaison, complex international travel, handling confidential matters, planning events and managing similar tasks.
An executive assistant is more likely to be employed in an office, whereas a private personal assistant might be employed in a home. An executive assistant will work on business-related tasks and will be less likely to run personal errands for an individual. They might be employed in a family office or in a corporate setting.
Finding the right executive assistant to support your business goals doesn’t have to be a daunting task. We can help to match you with a bright and ambitious person who understands the importance of discretion in this role.
