About this Role 

Executive Assistant

£20,000 - £22,000 pro rata – 2 days per week (pref Tuesday and Thursday, subject to discussion)

Reporting to the Chief Executive, the Executive Assistant provides meticulous administrative support to the Chief Executive, the (non-executive) Chair, and the Board of Sound and Music. This will include complex diary management and co-ordination; arranging meetings and dealing with all logistics around them; taking accurate minutes of Board and Finance Subcommittee meetings; minuting other meetings as required; filing (digitally and physically); archiving. The post holder will also have responsibility for ensuring that Sound and Music’s policies and procedures are complete, up to date, and will schedule review points with Board and Senior Management Team to an agreed cycle.

This role is at the front line of Sound and Music, since the post holder will be responsible for dealing with incoming enquiries for the Chief Executive and Chair, and for meeting and greeting visitors. The post is 2 days per week, although some flexibility is required in order to accommodate attendance at Board and Finance Subcommittee meetings. These are booked several months in advance.

The post holder will also form part of the Sound and Music team, and so is required to be flexible about taking on other duties on an ad hoc basis, if the need arises.
