An exciting opportunity has arisen to join a top 15 UK University in a key role within our Human Resources Department. Due to maternity leave, we are now inviting applications for a temporary post of Executive Assistant to the Vice-President Human Resources.
Working closely with the VP HR, who is a member of the University’s Executive Board, you will be responsible for managing the VP HR’s diary and day to day activities and will help ensure the effective running of the HR Department.
The work is varied and at times unpredictable. The role requires someone with strong emotional intelligence and good verbal and written communication skills who is also an excellent planner and organiser used to handling highly confidential information. The unpredictable nature of the work means that at times there are significant peaks in workload, so an ability to keep calm and effective when working autonomously under pressure to tight deadlines will be important. Flexibility to work outside of core hours at times is also preferred.
Ideally educated to degree level or equivalent, the successful candidate will have experience of working at a senior level in a complex organisation, using MS Office applications, and producing standard data reports and executive presentations for boards and committees. Proficiency in audio typing would be an added benefit as the VP HR regularly dictates on a digital voice recorder.
We would be interested in a Job-share situation as a possibility for this role.
In addition to a competitive salary you will receive 32 days annual leave/closure days and a great benefits package including pension and discounted membership to our world-renowned Surrey Sports Park.
