Executive Assistant to the Chief Executive and Chairman
Employer: English Heritage
Salary: £35,000 - £39,000
Location: London

English Heritage cares for over 400 historic monuments, buildings and places. Through these, we bring the story of England to life for over 10 million visitors each year. Our people look after some of the greatest places in England so that they can be enjoyed today and for generations to come. From Stonehenge, to Hadrian's Wall, Kenwood House and Gardens, Osborne, Marble Hill, Dover Castle, Whitby Abbey, Tintagel Castle and many others, our people work in some of the most beautiful locations in the country. Our charity is run by the Chief Executive, Kate Mavor, and the Senior Management Team; and is overseen by our Chairman, Sir Tim Laurence, and our high-profile Board.

Our brand new office at 100 Wood Street, in the City of London, is where our Chief Executive and non-executive Chairman are based. We require a new Executive Assistant who will provide Kate and Sir Tim with comprehensive support to ensure the smooth-running of their office including diary management, co-ordination and handling of incoming and outgoing correspondence, identifying critical issues for attention and decision, being able to judge the priority of calls and invitations and filter these sensitively and appropriately, provide support at internal and external meetings, provide initial scrutiny of papers and submissions made to the Chief Executive and Chairman, organising conferences and external events, and planning ahead to ensure that effective use is made of diary space.

This is an exciting role for an EA who already has experience at a Chief Executive level and has worked with a non-executive Chairman and board.

English Heritage is an iconic national brand at a really interesting stage as a new independent charity. We would love to hear from you.
