Job Description

The Global Corporate Affairs organization is looking for an exceptional Executive Assistant who wants to work in a fast-paced, exciting, and growing team. We need someone who is bright and motivated, with a proven history of high performance and the ability to operate under pressure, to support a new Vice President in our Public Relations organization in Seattle, WA.

The successful candidate must have a demonstrated ability to manage complex calendars, coordinate domestic as well as international travel, process expense reports, update organizational charts, and act as a general liaison between your team members and leadership. In this role, you will:
· Proactively coordinate and engage with leadership in planning and organizing events, activities and calendars
· 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)
· Manage group logistics
· Have fun at work and help others do the same
· Partner with other assistants throughout the team and across the rest of the company
