Executive Assistant

Crunch is a multi-award winning accountancy service and software company based in Brighton with a team of 190 and over 11,000 clients. Together, we single-handedly pioneered a complete online accounting solution to empower self employed contractors, freelancers and micro-businesses in the UK, helping them to grow their business and create the lives they want.

After four years in the role, our current Executive Assistant is pursuing a different career at Crunch - so we’re excited to advertise this rare vacancy and welcome someone new into the role!

 

Who are we looking for?

We’re seeking an Executive Assistant who not only has the experience of working for a dynamic C-Suite level executive and senior leadership team, but brings passion and enthusiasm to match our working environment. As the only Executive Assistant at Crunch an independent streak is a must - but rest assured, you’ll have a supportive network around you and will be working closely with the wider team to make great things happen! The ability to build connections and know your stakeholders is key, but on the flipside, you’ll recognise the importance of confidentiality and discretion.

Above all you must be a fantastic delegator and planner - able to understand the big picture and how to break tasks down into practical steps, to make a vision reality. The pace of work will be fast but exciting and priorities may change, this is something you will take in your stride as you focus on varied and interesting day to day and project work, enabling our CEO to concentrate on driving business growth. 

As an excellent communicator, you’ll have the ability to compose impeccably-crafted communications from both yourself and the CEO. You’ll play a pivotal role in planning events for the whole company - such as our infamous socials and charity fundraisers - this will mean you’ll need to be versatile, spinning lots of plates at once - but making it look like a breeze!

Does this sound like you? We'd love to hear from you!
