PA to CEO
At itison, we believe life is about the experience.
We match our 1.7m households to the best local businesses; create our own world class events; run some of our home city’s best venues; and donate experiences to those who need them the most through our own charity.
We believe our business should be a force for good and a great place for a career, but above all we believe work should be fun and that the experience starts with us.
We’re looking for an ambitious and driven Personal Assistant (PA) to the CEO (Oli) to join our team, working across itison, major events and itison venues.
Oli leads on strategy and creative across the businesses. Developing and directing world class major events, opening new venues, working with the marketing teams on campaigns and developing key strategies across the senior teams.
At itison we believe life is about the experience. Oli’s role is to make that happen.
About the role and you
You’ll be responsible for all aspects of Oli’s diary; prioritising work and liaising with all key team members and stakeholders. You’ll regularly attend meetings and major events working alongside design and production teams. Some flexibility working out with normal hours will be required.
Most days will be different, with the opportunity to work alongside multiple teams and learn inside a great entrepreneurial organisation spanning technology, major events and hospitality.
This is a brilliant chance to develop in a role that is varied and fast paced within a fun and rapidly growing operation.
You’ll come from a background where exceptional organisation is the norm and you are open, friendly and comfortable working with people at all levels. Ideally, you’ll love events and hospitality.
Due to Covid restrictions, the role may be initially split between our Glasgow Head Office and working from home subject to start date. The role is normally based in our beautiful Glasgow head office.
Key Skills and Experience
We'd love to hear from you if:
Your organisational skills and attention to detail are exceptional. You will be responsible for the CEO’s diary management, taking notes and actions at meetings, an array of administrative duties and liaising with internal teams and external organisations.
You can think on your feet. Priorities will be ever changing in this role, and you must be able to respond quickly to changing demands and be adept at problem solving independently and maintain a level head.
You are a people person. In this role you will be liaising with everyone from CEO’s and business leaders through to senior team members and contractors. You must have exceptional verbal and written communication skills and be able to build relationships at all levels.
You are resourceful and proactive: During event season you will be on-site with the CEO at times helping respond to real time challenges
You are an admin master. You must be able to multi-task and stay on top of the detail with tight deadlines and a busy workload, juggling the needs of the CEO’s personal and work life.
You love events and hospitality. A background in any form of event management or hospitality would be a bonus; a love of live events and the excitement they bring is a must.
Previous roles as a PA are not a requirement, but prior experience working in a highly organised capacity demonstrating multi-tasking and the ability to communicate at a high level is.
