The Nitty Gritty
The backstory on the company and why they need to hire you!
This established, female-led digital video agency works with big-name clients in the entertainment, sports, and media spaces. As they try to keep up with their growth, they’re looking for an accountable, detail-oriented, and fast-paced Executive Assistant to manage schedules and communications for key company executives both in New York City and remotely.
It will be your responsibility to anticipate needs, have discretion (you will have a lot of celebrity interaction), and know who needs to be in which meetings when. You will manage calendars, time zones, travel itineraries, complicated logistics, and engage in fast-paced decision making – and the snowball effect that one decision can have on a well-laid plan.
If you understand New York City aka the pace of life, where things are in relation to each other, and how to book a table that is quiet enough for a deal to get done (and make sure there is a car waiting to take a founder and the creative team uptown to pitch a new strategy), then this is indeed the gig for you.
How you’ll know if you’re a fit…
Hands down, you’re insanely organized and detail-oriented. Meticulous is your middle name! You know the ins and outs of NYC like the back of your hand, and you are not fazed by celebrity.
Given the fast-paced nature of your business, you need to be able to manage calendars efficiently, schedule meetings, and ensure that everything runs smoothly. It goes without saying that you have excellent attention to detail – this includes avoiding spelling errors and calendaring mistakes. You’re highly adept at administrative tasks, ensuring that everything is accurate and error-free. Note, you must know Microsoft Calendars and be prepared to anticipate CEO timing needs.
What’s more, you must have adaptability and knowledge of pop culture. You must be up-to-date with current trends, pop culture, and digital platforms like TikTok. Your adaptability will help you connect with your clients and understand the evolving digital landscape.
