ISE is delighted to offer this Founder-level Executive Assistant role in an outstanding boutique finance house – inspiring and collegiate team, plus superb West End location.

You will be right hand to the Founder, who is manages key relationships across the company’s client base.  With the chance to work closely with their brilliant, field-leading team, this is an ideal opportunity for someone who loves to “roll up one’s sleeves” and get involved – the firm is small, close-knit and needs a team player.

You will be an ambitious, team-focused and gregarious EA, who enjoys working with high achievers – you will join to support the Founder, working closely with the ten person firm.

Duties will be classic, but with plenty of autonomy:

  • Diary coordination for two (Founder and another top investment professional), working closely with team to get priorities right
  • Meeting logistics and full preparation
  • International travel management
  • Internal and client liaison
  • Board liaison and coordination
  • Administration – you will be a highly organised multi-tasker

This is a busy and diverse role, requiring someone who enjoys thinking ahead – you will be able to work out the 'what ifs' before they happen, provide a seamless and sophisticated service at senior level and demonstrate an understanding of the aims of the associates, enabling you to make strong decisions on their behalves.

Alternative investment experience is essential for this role.  There is a strong preference for a degree level education, but exceptions may be made for those with strong relevant experience.

This is a fantastic opportunity to join an outstanding firm, and add a hugely well-respected name to your CV.

Competition will be stiff – apply today!
