Our client is a fast growing fintech start-up, which is disrupting the payments market. By utilising open banking regulations (PSD2), they are bringing merchants and customers closer together through convenient payment technology, low cost transactions and instant payments.

Their app-less mobile ordering platform went to market in 2020 with the aim of bringing the hospitality industry into the digital age. Since social distancing has been in place, this product has gone from nice to have, to need to have, for businesses across the UK resulting in a high demand for the product.

They are now recruiting for a dynamic, switched-on, and experienced EA to join their evolving team.
Reporting directly to the CEO (who founded the company) you’ll provide executive, administrative, research and project support to the CEO and Board of Directors. You’ll manage the CEO’s schedule and workload, ensuring they are adequately prepared for meetings, organising meetings, preparing agendas and minute-taking. You’ll brief the CEO on their daily schedule, making the necessary booking and travel arrangements to ensure they always arrive on time and know where to be.
In addition to these executive support functions you’ll assist the CEO in special projects, undertaking research across a wide variety of areas supporting the CEO in their activities. This could range from exploring new markets and opportunities to finding new premises and organising their design and layout.

Essential qualities
•With five years commercial experience, you’ll hold a business-related bachelor's degree such as economics, business administration or marketing and have a strong academic record.
•You may already be an executive assistant with the desire to move into a broader role or have experience in a commercial environment with a desire to broaden your commercial experience and business awareness.
•You will be outgoing, organised, analytical, methodical and a great communicator who is able to represent the CEO in a courteous and professional manner.
•You’ll have the confidence to work on your own initiative, make your own decisions and the ability to manage upwards dealing with the Board and leadership team.
•Given the nature of the role and the CEO’s busy schedule, weekend work and overtime will be required as well as accompanying the CEO on business travel both within the UK and overseas.
