We are looking for a dynamic, driven Executive Assistant (EA) who can work with little direction to support several of the most senior consultants, Partners and Principals in a Global Management Consultancy. In this client, EAs are an essential part of the office and are expected to grow throughout their careers, building and improving their skills to match the evolving needs of the business and their clients. 
A successful EA manages and assumes responsibility for the Partners' agendas, effectively and proactively prioritizing on behalf of the Partners in appropriate situations. We need you to identify and manage the right priorities and processes to ensure that the consultants we support have what they need to seamlessly serve the needs of our clients. You make decisions and give guidance to others based on knowledge of the client and Partner preferences.
This role will be based in the London office and will be on a temp-to-perm basis - with a view to becoming permanent within the first month.  The position involves booking (and unbooking) travel, scheduling (and rescheduling) meetings, keeping track of time and expenses, supporting the case team process, and generally keeping up with the fast pace of the most senior consulting staff. 
You will be surrounded by an Administrative Team that consists of a group of smart, team-oriented people.  EAs actively participate in office life, are flexible and willing to help fellow Business Services Team (BST) members, and collaborate across functions. They serve as mentors to more junior members of the Admin team.  We work hard together, and we go out of our way to support each other – we want everyone to be successful, individually and as a team.   
We won't define a career path for you – some of the EAs we've hired in this role have gone on to have long and successful careers as Senior Executive Assistants in the client; while others have gone into work in one of the many Practice Areas; some have managed teams or rotated through a number of other functions.  Your career at this client will be at the intersection of your skills and desires and the needs of the business; it will only be limited by your investment.
