On behalf of our client, a global chemical industry with European headquarter in the greater Zurich area, we are looking for an agile, competent and bright
Personal Assistant (100%)
By providing full administrative support in mostly business but partially also in personal matters, you will be responsible for running your superior’s daily routine. As a member of the group’s Executive Committee and Regional Head, she will entirely rely on you to manage her agenda and extensive travel arrangements, handle her expenses and monitor the follow-up of her pending issues. You will also be in charge of her correspondence, screening incoming calls and acting as the overall entry point for a variety of topics. During her frequent absences, you are the one ensuring the smooth continuation of the daily business in a competent manner, reflecting the state-of-the-art quality aspired by the company. In this key position, you will prioritize the vast amount of incoming information and guarantee efficient and effective communication with your superior. Running her office includes organizing sporadic events and various appointments plus overseeing all types of meetings, i.e.: one-to-ones, regular management and team meetings including scheduling the order of the day. Moreover, you will review, summarize and prepare miscellaneous reports, presentations and documents. As a gifted networker and key ambassador to your superior, you will maintain and promote excellent relations at all levels, including other Management Assistants.
To be our successful candidate, we expect several years working experience as a Personal Assistant managing complex tasks for senior executives in an international, fast-paced corporate environment. The global nature of this role requires fluent English and good knowledge of German, excellent MS-Office skills and affinity with modern technology. Flexibility regarding shifting priorities and pressing issues goes without saying for you. Thanks to your wellstructured mindset, you will juggle and prioritize multiple tasks simultaneously, successfully handling a demanding workload without compromising on your attention to detail. We are looking for a self-confident and yet diplomatic person – a real expert in her field where professionalism, a good sense of humour and open-mindedness are complimentary. Your new entourage will appreciate your pleasant, well-balanced personality and accommodating working style. As a trusted sparring partner to your manager, you value absolute confidentiality and integrity. The Executive’s absence from the office for considerable periods of time, calls for an independent and proactive work attitude. She will expect you, a quick learner as well as a smart and energetic personality, to know how to help yourself in a creative and solution-oriented way.
This is an exciting position, well suited for a dedicated individual with first class organizational and interpersonal skills who enjoys versatile assignments. It is a perfect opportunity for a dynamic person who knows how to get a job done, but worth applying for a number of extra reasons. You may look forward to a fascinating microcosm of people under one roof and within the global network of the company. The broad range of its services are related to sustainability and ethical standards. Also worth mentioning is the fact that you will be working alongside an inspirational and approachable boss. Last but not least, you will be part of a firm with a truly professional environment and yet informal company culture with pleasant offices, generous working conditions and team involvement. Most important, however, is your true possibility to have an impact in an open-minded company. If you are curious to find out more about this exciting position, we are looking forward to receiving your application in English (complete with CV and motivation letter) to Sabine Biland-Weckherlin at firstname.lastname@example.org, SBW-03-18. Thank you.
