I have extensive PA/Admin experience gained in various industries, the past 10 years of which have been in the financial sector, and with varying levels of responsibilities. I would consider myself a strong all-rounder, approachable, dedicated, highly organised and personable. Key skills including travel booking, complex visas, diary management, supplier liaison, procurement, negotiation, training, flexibility and being able to work as part of a team.
My most recent permanent position was that of EA/Team Assistant, supporting 2 Senior MD's and a team of 20 people on a busy trading floor. This means that I can work well under pressure, to strict deadlines and with a conscious awareness of international time zones.
The role included comprehensive travel booking and diary management, plus general administrative support.
I was also a team leader for a workstream which involved managing a team of assistants, organising training sessions, training new starters as well as arranging site visits.
I have office management experience, and am adept at all administration duties, including purchasing and dealing with suppliers.
With a highly proficient knowledge of Microsoft Office, I am also familiar with Lotus Notes, Oracle, SalesLogix, Lipper Hindsight and Sage.
