Equivity is looking for a part-time executive assistant who has worked directly with C-level executives in a fast-paced corporate environment and excels at communicating and coordinating with CEOs. The selected candidate will be an expert at managing the calendar and email inbox for extremely busy CEOs and VP’s, as well as processing expense reports utilizing MS Excel and Concur or Expensify. This candidate will be extremely efficient, and will be the epitome of “calm under pressure”, flexing as needed to adapt to the changing schedule and priorities of a busy executive. If this describes you and you’re looking to employ your skills in a work-from-home role, read on for more details about this position.
This role involves communication with CEO’s and VP’s at well-known companies and participation in regular phone and video conferences with both the internal team and organization members. You will be expected to handle a variety of tasks, take ownership of your role as the right-hand to the organization’s CEO or VP of various work groups, and be professional in all of your communication with key stakeholders. Work with this client will begin immediately and is expected to be 20-25 hours per week ongoing.
Experience interacting with C-level executives and managing complex calendars is required. Knowledge of project management tools, expense reporting, managing Excel spreadsheets, and a desire to take initiative and be a self-starter will also be necessary. The ideal candidate will demonstrate excellent written and verbal communication skills, and will work well both as the member of a team and independently.
Many of Equivity’s clients value the promotion of social justice and greater equity. They expect that their virtual assistant will be comfortable helping their business or non-profit operate in a manner consistent with these values. Your work for these organizations will also likely involve interacting with other stakeholders in these organizations who share these values. Accordingly, candidates should be comfortable representing organizations that promote a culture of diversity, equity and inclusion.
