Our client, a leading executive search and consultancy firm based in Bristol, is looking for an Assistant to the Managing Partner to provide them with comprehensive support and in doing so, maximise their efficiency and output on all business activities.

The Managing Partner founded the company and leads from the front with energy and passion.

· Collating often complex data and information into a usable format for the Managing Partner’s use

· Finalising commercial agreements, reviewing financial and budget reports, and working collaboratively on strategic initiatives and projects as agreed with the Board to ensure they are a success

· Conducting research to support the Managing Parnter’s strategic initiative development, including market trends and competitor analysis

· Exercising good judgement in a variety of situations and an ability to perceive pressure points as they occur both within the business and the Managing Partner’s workload, prioritising tasks accordingly to alleviate these

· Acting as a solid gatekeeper and building relationships with the Board, other key stakeholders and the wider team

The successful applicant should have;

· 4-5 years’ experience working in fast-paced professional services environments
