Our client is looking for a PA to support the Chief Technical Officer (CTO).

The CTO is responsible for three divisions, made up of around eighty people. Your purpose is to deliver the product lines of our clients current core business and exploit the market sectors which they believe will become their core business over the next few years, so you'll be right at the heart of the action in this role.

As a PA for our client your most important job is to make your manager as effective and efficient as possible. Reporting to the CTO, you'll help to optimise their time through rigorous diary management, as well as being responsible for planning, coordinating, and minuting key meetings. There will be a substantial amount of drafting correspondence such as internal emails, blog posts and other material as required. You'll assist with email management, organise project and team celebrations, social events, and - most importantly - you'll act as a reliable sanity check and sounding board for ideas.

In addition to this, you’ll be at the centre of the CTO’s team and their activities, and the soul that keeps the team moving forward. To that end you'll also be responsible for picking up some projects and ad-hoc tasks for the CTO and the direct reports, giving you insight and strong ties into key parts of the business.

As well as working closely with the CTO and his reports, you'll also be a member of our clients friendly, close-knit PA team, working collaboratively with other PAs across the company to do what's best for our client and help maximise efficiency in all areas.

Being a PA for our client isn't just about diary management and meeting minutes - it's about working in total trust and harmony with the managers you support as a well-oiled, high-functioning team. If the thought of playing an integral part in key company initiatives and the opportunity to help shape process in a fast-paced product and innovation division sound exciting, this might just be the job for you!
