About the employer 

This well-established property business is known for its strong track record, inclusive, positive culture and dedication to excellence. Offering a broad scope of services in its speciality niche, this employer has offices across Sydney with teams on the ground delivering expert local services to a vast array of clients.  Starting as a family business decades ago, the company has retained its humble origins during exponential growth over the years, and is now a 100-strong team of experts and market leader in its field. 

About the executive

This dynamic executive works at an extremely fast pace and is passionate about providing an excellent standard of service to clients. This is a truly values-led organisation and the MD is the embodiment of that commitment to taking care of staff and community. With an extremely busy work rate and numerous commitments, the MD finds it challenging to achieve everything necessary in the role with the hours available, so wants to rely on an executive assistant to help prioritise and keep an eye on the bigger picture. Being supportive to both staff and clients is highly important and support is required to deliver these objectives. The MD is a charismatic operator, an excellent communicator and a wonderful leader to learn from. Entertaining sophisticated clients and attending industry events is a large proponent of their remit, so working with someone who understands this dynamic will be beneficial.

A savvy commercial operator who can manage the MDs schedule and keep everything to a strict routine will be the perfect support the MD needs to operate successfully. Excellent verbal and written communication is essential to the role, as is an outstanding level of professional presentation. Attention to detail and a sharp streak of common sense is vital.
