They are committed to delivering great customer service, high-quality work and a safe, responsible working environment.

Their commitment to safety is demonstrated by their 'Golden Rules of Health and Safety', a set of core principles that protect their employees, their customers and the public.

Our client is proud of what they do. The company values and way of working is so important to them, they consider themselves to be part of the companies 'DNA', representing their core set of values that everyone strives towards.

They work hard, but more importantly they work together, in order to deliver great results with a real team spirit.

Role Purpose:

The purpose of this fantastic role is to provide Executive Support to Group General Counsel/Director, organising diaries, travel, email and support with reporting to ensure the Group General Counsel is able to operate with ease regularly. This will include support in Legal, ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) and wider Executive areas.

  • Close attention to detail.
  • Willingness to lean (and teach the Executive!)
  • Diary/Travel Management and administration.
  • Excellent IT and presentation skills.
  • Excellent time management and prioritisation skills.
  • A second European language (e.g. Spanish, Italian, German or French) would be helpful - but not essential for this role

Key Characteristics:

  • Desire to work hard, learn quickly and be thoughtful.
  • Able to work successfully in a high challenge/high support environment.
  • Intellectually strong but also practical.
