Executive Assistant

Neptune HQ, Swindon - Permanent, full-time

The role

Almost 25 years ago, two friends with a vision set about building a company from a dusty Wiltshire barn. Today, that vision holds true, as does their love for great design. With lots of hard work and a great team, they've built a fantastic but complex business which continues to grow.

Neptune has become a multi-faceted, vertically integrated business which brings all sorts of exciting challenges. We also like to do things a little differently here and due to internal growth, we are now looking for an ambitious, energetic and organised Executive Assistant to deliver seamless support to our very busy Chief Operating Officer.

Flexibility and foresight will underpin your approach and you'll excel in this role by:

  • Expertly managing business and personal administration duties including travel arrangements, diary and meeting management and preparation
  • Coordinating and supporting on cross-departmental projects to improve efficiency and meet business objectives
  • Attending forums and events; minute taking and undertaking follow-up including progressing agreed actions with owners
  • Building strong respect driven working relationships with the COO's direct reports and supporting the completion of team and individual tasks

You'll be a critical thinker and bring an enthusiasm for driving order and efficiency, as well as a strong knowledge of Microsoft Office software and the ability to pick up new systems quickly. You'll be used to working to demanding deadlines with excellent communication skills and the ability to influence others.

We believe in careers, rather than jobs so in return for your hard work and dedication, we offer a highly competitive salary, a great range of other benefits and genuine progression and opportunity in a growing business.

We hope we've piqued your interest, if you'd like to find out a little bit more about what we value highly by reading our 'different perspectives' article here, then apply by sending your CV and cover letter to Gemma in our Talent team
