Toi Whakaari is seeking a quick thinking, innovative and dexterous Executive Assistant for our Director. We are looking for someone who can change gears quickly and smoothly, work independently to provide a high level of support, and thrive in an ever changing environment.
This role also has a project and event delivery element. This is perfect for someone who likes to sink their teeth into logistics, planning and detail. It is a busy and varied full-time role and there will be periodic work outside of normal office hours.
The ideal candidate will have a flair for organisation, well-developed listening and communication skills, demonstrated ability to meet deadlines, and the capability to multitask whilst ensuring the small detail is correct. People focus, governance understanding, and the ability to learn quickly and to work autonomously will ensure success in the role. A sense of humour and keeping calm under pressure will also be valued.
Knowledge of Te Reo Māori and protocols would be advantageous to this position as would experience of budgeting and providing administrative support for a Board of Trustees.
If you enjoy being the “go to” person, getting things done, coördinating others, providing high quality executive and board secretarial support whilst ensuring things run smoothly, then this is a great role for you.
