Talent Nation

The company

Small Giants’ mission is to lead communities towards empathy and the Next Economy. That means they use business as a major tool for positive, social and environmental impact, and provide people with a meaningful pathway to live a life with passion and purpose. From start-up social enterprises and large-scale social and environmental investments, to sustainable property development and a more secure food system, the Small Giants community of businesses reflects their deep passion and diverse interests.

As a private family office, they are a small team doing amazing things in an intimate working environment, where respect and commitment to the work and each other, is essential.

The role

A truly unique opportunity to support a small team doing great things, on a large scale. A typical day does not exist, instead the role’s purpose is to see what needs doing, maintain an impeccable front of house, support in event coordination where guests feel every detail has been thought of, to responding to immediate and varied requests, providing executive assistant support to the owners and senior staff whilst assisting in the day-to-day coordination of personal requests and other business needs.

In order for this small team to make the impact they do, they need a dynamic executive assistant who brings an understated polish, a knack for knowing what is needed, phenomenal organisational skills, along with a passion for good causes, and a clear understanding of how to best support this dynamic family and business, which are one and the same.

Other key responsibilities include:

  • Organise travel itineraries and arrangements anywhere around the globe
  • Diary, email and contact management
  • Organise meetings and events
  • Background research of specific projects
  • Liaise with business associates and advisors
  • Personal errands
  • Property management and coordination of suppliers
  • Drafting and preparing correspondence, including presentations, documents, invitations, briefing papers and meeting minutes.
  • Office management and administration duties
