About the job
After nearly twenty years of recruiting senior level Assistants, it takes a lot for us to take a step back and think ‘wow’, but this opportunity is genuinely a “once in a lifetime” chance.
Working exclusively from home, the role is to support a high-profile sportsman across all areas of their personal life and specifically their movement around the globe for personal, business and sporting commitments.
Whilst the role is considered to be 100% remote in the sense that there is no UK office from which you can be based, you will be invited and required to travel with the Principal and their team to specific events; sometimes at short notice, so flexibility is a key attribute to being successful with this position.
Planning and organisation of international travel and logistics are a HUGE part of this role.
If you’ve done a role similar to this before, then you’ll know firsthand the challenges of coordinating the support team around the Principal, and the movement of that team spread across a mixture of Private and Commercial planes.
You’ll be the glue in the team that holds all commitments, relationships and the group together looking after everything from logistics, restaurants, shopping, errands, clothing, household issues and so much more.
To be considered, you will already have experience of this type of role – you will need to almost certainly have experience as a Private Assistant who has significant exposure to dealing with these types of demands. If you’ve had this within a creative environment (i.e., non-corporate role) then we think that will be beneficial.
As the role involves working from home, you’re going to need to be a natural self-starter who is able to work calmly with the Principal and their team. Your role is a vital component of this individual’s success, so even though you will be working independently, you must be totally motivated and focused on getting the job done to the absolute best of your ability.
Everything is expected to perfection levels; there can be no unnecessary stress or drama in this role, and you must be someone who can confidently handle any eventuality whilst your Principal remains blissfully unaware of any potential problems.
You’ll be expected to be available as and when required – and with the Principal often working across different time zones this may impact your life on a regular basis.
