Working For: Save the Children
Salary: £28,000 - £33,000 per annum
We are looking for an energetic and organised self starter with a positive and proactive attitude to join us as Executive Assistant to the Chief of Staff. You will sit in the CEO’s office and support the Chief of Staff across all her responsibilities, providing a mix of executive assistance, project management and administrative support. Working in the CEO’s office is a key way to make an impact at Save the Children as you will help to ensure the smooth and effective running of the office, supporting the Chief of Staff and the CEO to carry out their responsibilities and deliver on the charity’s ambitions for children.
As Executive Assistant to the Chief of Staff you will prepare daily briefing packs and ensure internal and external requests are dealt with in a timely manner whilst managing the Chief of Staff’s emails, diary and travel. Playing a critical role in quarterly meetings of the Board of Trustees, you will act as an administrative focal point for all Board matters, liaising with our Trustees to do so. You will also ensure all meetings of the executive and corporate leadership teams run efficiently, including commissioning and circulating papers, taking minutes, chasing actions and managing all logistical arrangements. In addition, you will:
• Support and project manage the Centenary Commitments programme of work
• Act as a focal point for the organisation across the Chief of Staff’s responsibilities, which include management of the leadership team and internal communications
• Undertake other activities in support of the CEO office, including ad hoc support of the Communications Manager and Head of Internal Communications.
To be successful in this role, you will thrive in and be motivated by a fast-paced and dynamic environment. You will have the ability to deal effectively and confidently with a number of competing demands, with the ability to problem solve and prioritise. The CEO team is small and we all help each other out – the ideal candidate will be happy to occasionally go above and beyond and support members of the team. You will have extensive administrative and project management experience, as well as excellent communication and relationship building skills.
