We have a fantastic opportunity to join an exciting start-up Private Equity fund as a Mandarin speaking Team PA in their central London offices. They are keen to expand their profile and services internationally and are therefore opening operations in London and New York simultaneously.  

The London office is being set up by an established and successful executive who has worked in a similar field for many years.  He is flying solo at the moment but has some new starters in the pipeline and plans to expand the office, however it will remain a small but global operation.  With this in mind, it is critical that he gets some support to help him establish and implement infrastructure and processes as well as help him and the growing team manage their very busy days.
They are looking for a confident Team PA who is capable of carrying out the usual responsibilities of a typical PA such as; diary management, expenses, arranging travel itineraries and meeting and greeting visitors in reception. The next few months will be particularly busy with searching for new office space, getting suppliers on board and negotiating those contracts, as well as implementing processes and structure, therefore you will be asked to lend your support to the EA/Office Manger too - it is important you are a true team player!
The ideal candidate will be confident, resourceful, can work off their own initiative and not need too much hand holding, be structured in their working style but flexible and adaptable at the same time, tech savvy and good at building a rapport with people but knows when to put their head down and get on with it.

They are looking for a Mandarin speaker ideally.

They are offering up to £45k, depending on experience, however at the moment the benefits package is fairly minimal.  They have a pension and PMI in place but the rest will happen in due course so you just need to be patient for now.

If you are a Mandarin speaker and this opportunity sounds exciting to you, please apply without delay!
