This EA role will involve lots of liaison at senior level both internally across the firm and externally so you'll get great exposure to an interesting and diverse group of people. The Head of Group is hugely successful and a high-octane, high-energy character, so you'll be involved in a huge range of tasks - you certainly won't be bored in this role!

  • Supporting with billing and expenses
  • Preparation for a range of internal and client meetings - collating agendas, chasing action points, taking minutes
  • Liaising with clients and across the business at senior level

In order to be successful in this EA role, you will need to be able to work collaboratively, be solutions focused, resilient and have excellent communication and influencing skills. You'll be able to 'manage up' when required and be comfortable with working outside of core office hours from time to time.

You'll also need:

  • Strong experience as a Senior PA/EA supporting at Senior level - ideally within Legal, but wider professional services would be considered
