Did you know that executive assisting is one of the largest occupations nationwide? And there's a good reason for it! To allow you, the MD or CEO to get on with other important tasks an executive assistant can ensure the office and admin side of the business runs smoothly. An executive assistant must have fantastic organisational skills. Having responsibility for organising the schedules (or indeed lives) of some very senior people is an extremely important task. In order to do this, sound logistical arrangements must be in place and your executive assistant must be competent in taking responsibility for deciding which meetings and appointments are of the most strategic importance and will be the best use of your time. In today's fast-paced working environment, an executive assistant is essential to the smooth running of any organisation.
