We are seeking a highly skilled and experienced Personal Assistant who can provide a highly confidential, comprehensive service to the Director of Workforce and Organisational Development. It is essential that the candidate has the ability to work on their own initiative in a highly demanding and fast paced environment, organise and prioritise workloads effectively whilst still maintaining the flexibility to produce work to a high standard.

The Personal Assistant will be required to undertake a variety of tasks including managing and prioritising executive diaries and workload, setting tasks and keeping to timescales, convening and organising meetings, maintaining and updating filing/bring forward systems, preparing presentations, initiating and responding to correspondence and preparing board level reports and administering committees. Minute-taking is a key function in this demanding role and it is essential for the candidate to have had experience of this at senior management level meetings and meetings involving external senior managers. Candidates will need good typing and IT skills with experience of all Microsoft Office packages and an understanding of corporate governance. The ability to prioritise effectively within a very busy fast paced environment is also essential.

The successful candidate will have relevant practical experience in a support role in a busy office.

Due to the nature of this position candidates will have experience of working within a confidential environment, be able to exercise tact and diplomacy at all times and have a professional manner in order to deal with a wide range of enquiries from inside and outside the Trust.
