Executive Assistant to CEO. Hybrid (1 day WFH)

C-suite experience
£60k + bens
Central London
Office / Hybrid (1 day WFH)

Our client, a highly respected life science charity focused on helping support some of the most promising partnerships and developments in medical science, is seeking a high-level senior business EA to support their CEO. This candidate should be highly professional and have significant executive support experience, preferably at C-suite / Board level. While experience in the life sciences industry would be beneficial, it is not required. However a shared passion for improving people’s lives, and the charity’s objectives generally, is a must.

This Executive Assistant will be an exceptional communicator, and a true gatekeeper for the CEO – effectively their face, eyes and ears in the business as required. This EA will have the scope to work autonomously and creatively, and be rewarded for learning fast, working innovatively and with initiative – and able to maintain the highest levels of integrity and discretion in handling confidential information.

The successful candidate will have a desire to work as a team, for the greater good of the company, and the charity’s main goals.

Salary: Up to £60k, 5% flexible benefit and discretionary bonus, excellent benefits and holiday package.
