This exciting role requires superior attention to detail, the ability to meet tight deadlines, great organizational skills, and the ability to juggle multiple critical requests. A high level of integrity and discretion in handling confidential information, and professionalism in dealing with senior professionals inside and outside the company is important.

Responsibilities for this position include the proactive ownership of a busy executive calendar, ability to coordinate complex meetings and projects by working directly with key stakeholders, experience with compiling and organizing high volumes information, and a proven ability to plan-ahead and manage time effectively.

Key responsibilities include:
· Manage complex calendar and scheduling requirements
· Provide seamless support to senior leaders using prioritization of business activities
· Manage space availability for the organization
· Travel coordination (both domestic and international) Expense reporting
· Track and help drive completion of key deliverables and follow up on outstanding items
· Drive key team activities (such as staff meeting agendas, all hands meetings, supply ordering, and cyclical events such as annual planning sessions and performance reviews)
· This position will work with other assistants throughout the Public Sector team and across the rest of the company.
