Temporary EA / PA within private equity

Did you know that temping could be a career?

Joss Search are always on the lookout for enthusiastic and skilled EA’s who enjoy long-term temping to join our temp community!

Our clients make up 85% of the world’s leading global private equity and alternative investment firms, and many have opportunities for temporary assignments of varying lengths. This could mean opportunities for regular work within the West End/Mayfair area of London, time to get to know the teams, and the chance to gain a deeper understanding of the business.

We’re looking for EA’s who are:

  • Are adaptable and proactive
  • Hold strong organisation and time management skills
  • Are articulate and communicative, highly reliable

Your main responsibilities will be (but are not limited to!):

  • Complex diary and inbox management
  • Arranging complex travel itineraries
  • Managing expenses
  • Other administrative tasks to the assigned team(s)/individual(s)

Benefits and details:

  • Fully office based, in London’s West End and Mayfair
  • Potential hourly rate of up to £28ph plus holiday pay
  • Free breakfasts and lunches included with many of our clients
  • Fantastic flexible opportunity to support within leading PE firms

You’ll be working within some of London’s top private equity firms and these are fast-paced, dynamic environments, so exposure to private equity, boutique finance and fast-paced environments is desirable.

If you’re an experienced Executive Assistant or PA looking for a career in temping, please get in touch – we’d love to hear from you!

At Joss Search we value every single one of our temps and believe in finding the perfect candidates for our clients as well as the perfect clients for our candidates.

“I started temping with Joss Search at the start of 2020 and I absolutely love them! Clients are lovely – great pay – and the Joss team are the loveliest group of people! I’m an actor and they really try to help and be flexible! (…) I’ve never felt so taken care of”
