Executive Assistant

A truly satisfying EA role working closely with the Principal of a renowned & highly regarded secondary school.

  • A key role-criteria is to free the Principal from admin work
  • Pro-activeness & decisiveness are part of a days work
  • If job satisfaction is a key criteria in your role look no further!


Decision making on behalf of the Principal, care-taking the Principal's diary, vetting, writing and responding to correspondence, organisation and collation of board papers. It's all here in this newly created, pivotal role! This, in turn, will allow the Principal to work on the business of the school's success both now and in the future.

Skill requirements include:

  • Vetting and handling incoming communications, writing outgoing communications (above average spelling, numeracy, grammar and accuracy required!)
  • Preparation and distribution of board documents
  • Preparation of school documentation  
  • Overseeing the safety of confidential staff records and policies
  • Manage a small team of support staff, including staff appraisals
  • 20 minute meeting each morning with the Principal ensures both parties are in sync
  • Undertaking other Executive Assistant duties
  • Intermediate - Advanced Microsoft suite skills - there is also an in-house system (KAMA)


Person requirements:

  • Professional interaction over the phone and one-on-one both internally and externally
  • Willing to table your ideas to improve systems and processes
  • Ability to interact at ease with students, parents and the Board of Trustees,as examples
  • A 'given' is the ability to multi-task and remain calm under pressure 

There is positive support from the Principal; however this is definitely not a role where the Executive Assistant will be micromanaged. In fact new ideas and solutions will be welcomed.


A sense of achievement and responsibility is guaranteed! The hours in this role are 8.30am-5pm.


This is a three-sixty degree Executive Assistant's role in every sense of the word!
