We have a fantastic opportunity for a global investment firm that is seeking a German & English speaking Executive Assistant to support the Managing Partner & small investment team with executive support, plus arranging quarterly global events for the team and clients.

They have global offices, with a successful and growing office in Cologne, and there are regular events, trips and meetings that bring the firm together to create a really collaborative culture across all locations.

This will be the first support to the Cologne office as this has previously been performed out of their London location, so an exciting time to join and make this role your own!

  • Some office management including managing the relationships with suppliers and budgets for the office
  • Arranging quarterly events in Cologne, and in global locations
  • Assisting with compliance administration when applicable
  • Ad-hoc projects when required



To be successful in this role you should have worked in a very busy role before as an Executive Assistant, and be able to work at a fast pace confidently and calmly in a boutique but global environment.

Your team will travel and be based in different cities at times, so in office and remote support is required, and you must be a self-starter.
