Executive Assistant

Global Private Equity Firm – centrally located in Frankfurt

Base salary, discretionary bonus & benefits package worth circa 60-80,000€

One of our global boutique private equity clients has asked me to recruit a hugely important role for their Frankfurt office on an exclusive basis. This is an Executive Assistant role to support the senior Executives based in Frankfurt, plus office management duties & project work. Fluent German & English language skills are a must!

This is an exciting time for the Frankfurt office as the firm concentrates on expanding the operations there to add to the already thriving global locations. They reward well for a job well done & need a brilliant Executive Assistant who will be able to work autonomously in Frankfurt & as part of a wider EA team across their other locations.

This role is to be based five days in the office. As the team grows (currently 10 employees), they could look to hire another EA, creating the opportunity for some home office. 

MAIN DUTIES:

  • Executive Assistant – direct support to the two Partners & some more junior Investment Professionals based in Frankfurt
  • Complex scheduling of global meetings, preparation ahead of meetings, travel arrangements, expenses, secretarial & organisational support

SECONDARY DUTIES:

  • Office Management – overall responsibility for the office & ensuring the wider team is supported well, plus responsibility for strategic/process-focused tasks, with some basic HR admin (onboarding, etc.)
  • Projects – assistance with events & process implementation

THE CANDIDATE

It is important that you have experience as an Executive Assistant in fast paced environments – financial services or professional services is ideal.

This will suit an experienced Executive Assistant who is ready for a good challenge, who is calm, considered, proactive, can look ahead, is highly organised, confident & humble.

Fluent German & English skills are important, as is confidence in your communication skills, the ability to say no when you need to & being solutions-focused.

WHAT’S ON OFFER?

You will benefit from being the sole Executive Assistant leading the Frankfurt office working closely with the Senior Partners.

  • Highly competitive salary & bonus (depending on experience)
  • Yearly salary increases
  • Company-wide off-sites in Europe
