Personal Assistant

Dynamic and progressive permanent position for a Personal Assistant in the public sector

Your new company
This public sector organisation has a strong focus on Māori relations, playing an important role in supporting government with its commitments to te Tiriti o Waitangi. They are seeking a Personal Assistant to join their Executive Support team on a permanent basis.

Your new role
You will be joining a fun and hard-working team of 10 PAs who support at tier 2 and 3 level across the organisation.

You will provide administrative support to two managers, which will include:
  • Diary management
  • Inbox triage, responding on their behalf and redirecting where necessary
  • Coordinating meetings and taking minutes
  • Supporting other senior managers in the wider business with ad hoc administration

What you'll need to succeed
The hiring manager is very open to applications from anyone with a strong administrative background, whether this is as a Personal Assistant, Team Administrator or Coordinator.

Your most important skills will be your abilities in managing an inbox on behalf of someone else, coordinating diaries/calendars and being a trusted advisor. This means that you will be confident in your decision-making when it comes to things like appointment clashes, and be able to guide the people you are supporting
in managing their priorities.

What you'll get in return
This is an excellent opportunity to gain and build your experience with an organisation that prides itself on the learning and development of its employees. You will be working in a very supportive team who want to maintain their culture of work hard, play hard, and are looking for someone who suits this dynamic.

This is a Māori-focused organisation so, while prior experience with or understanding of tikanga Māori and/or te ao Māori would be beneficial, the organisation is all about education in this area - they have a large training budget, are dedicated to developing and educating their employees and are open to anybody who wants to learn more.
