You will be working closely with both the Principal and his immediate family and as such we are looking to find the absolute right personality fit as well as professional skill-set. The role would perfectly suit someone with 5+ years PA/EA, Team Assistant or Second Assistant experience who is looking to move into a 1:1 family office role where you will grow and progress over the long term.

Based from the family office, the Principal’s practice and your own home, in a hybrid situation, you will be flexible to suit the needs of the day and will be well looked after in return. Candidates who can start straight away will be considered, as well as those with a notice period and the successful candidate will receive a considerable handover with the departing EA.
