Careers: Executive Assistant

Executive Assistant to the CEO

August 99 is seeking a full-time Executive Assistant to the CEO — because he keeps promoting them to managers. This position is open to anyone who understands the importance of providing support to the head honcho of the company so he has more hands free to build greater things.

This includes being responsible for managing his schedule, performing complex duties, and handling very confidential information. Basically, we need a ninja.

      • Running numbers in spreadsheets


      • Arranging itineraries, visas, and accommodations
      • Occasionally tagging along for the ride (take notes, dictate at meetings, etc.)
      • Provide general assistance during presentations


      • Screening phone calls – take care of inquiries and requests
      • Handling calls when appropriate
      • Know when they’re worthy of the CEO’s time


      • Meet and greet the CEO’s visitors at all levels of seniority


      • Organizing and maintaining diaries
      • Setting appointments
      • Taking care of incoming email and being the correspondent


      • Liase with clients, suppliers, and other staff


When You Should Be Available

    • Monday to Friday, 6:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. or as needed
    • Preferably have your phone at all times — even the loo

What Tech You Will Use
