Personal Assistant Job Description


Marcilly Recruitment’s client, a hugely successful boutique hedge fund in Mayfair, is seeking a personable, easy-going Personal Assistant to join their lovely team. They currently have a team of three EAs with this being a newly created role to support a new Junior Partner.


It is a really friendly, collaborative team with no egos. The three Personal Assistants all support each other and have been there for ten, eight and six years. A testament to the fact they look after their Personal Assistants, and it is a great place to work.


Salary: £40K-£55K DOE

Benefits: discretionary, generous bonus depending on performance; 25 days holiday; pension; medical; season ticket loan & £25 weekly Deliveroo allowance

Location: Mayfair – office based four days a week with Friday being the compulsory day as the other three EAs work from home that day

Hours: 9am - 6pm Monday to Friday – these are very rarely worked over

Start date: ideally ASAP but it is more important to find the right long-term candidate, so they will wait up to 3 months


This Personal Assistant role is supporting one Junior Partner. He is apparently super busy with a very hectic diary, but he is a strong communicator, super organised, very easy going, highly intelligent and kind. Once you get to grips with that you will also be given another Analyst. His diary and schedule aren’t as intense, but he does travel a lot. The new Personal Assistant will also be taking over the quarterly board meetings from the EA to CEO & Founder. They have nine board members who all meet internationally, you have to organise everything from start to finish with a lot of hand holding for the different board members over the week.


Our financial services client is seeking a warm, friendly team player who can work well under pressure in a calm and unflappable manner. The Personal Assistant also needs to be a self-starter as there is no micromanagement and you will be given autonomy to take ownership of your own workload.


Hybrid working offered, with at least one day a week working from home.
