Our clients are looking for an Executive Assistant to run their family affairs - you must have experience in finance, accounting, and administration to supplement the work of their PA who takes care of all their personal and household matters.  Ideally you will be bilingual - at least fluent in French.  You must be reliable and have proven experience and good references.

Hours can be flexible - this is not a 24/7 type role, although there may be a small amount of travel.  Salary will be generous according to your background and experience to date.

This is a family whose staff stay with them long-term and they, therefore, expect a long-term commitment from you.  There may be opportunities to develop the duties further in relation to their family foundation work.  Currently the role will be based out of their residence, although they may in time create a small office.

Duties will include:

  • Producing/proof-reading correspondence and documents
  • Monitoring and/or managing emails
  • Proactively screening and dealing with calls and other correspondence
  • Effectively liaising with staff and other contacts
  • Ad-hoc project work and occasional travel to other properties (France and Scotland)
  • Responding to any urgent email questions and requests, especially when client travelling

Office Management

  • Smooth running and ongoing maintenance of day-to-day office operations and requirements
  • Administrative responsibilities including filing, maintenance of records

Financial & Legal

  • Recording and paying invoices
  • Preparing monthly accounts and preparation of VAT
  • Working closely with Tax Accountant, Bankers and Solicitors
  • Personal/Business banking and accounts monitoring
  • Establishing and maintaining efficient filing system

It is essential that your written French is of a very high standard so that you can produce well constructed personal and official letters and documents on behalf of your Principals. 

If part-time, you could work 2-3 days per week with flexibility, or 5 days with shorter hours (again with flexibility).

The Principals wish to meet with candidates as soon as possible for this role.
