We are seeking an energetic individual who understands the concept of Family Office and can add value across a wide administrative scope.

The position is varied and dual-faceted, providing full finance administrative support to the Finance & Legal Manager and further office administration and back office support to the Office Manager.

A strong understanding of IT and numerical ability is important, but no formal accountancy qualification is required. However candidates must be able to demonstrate experience with Excel; the use of Pivot tables and v and h look up in particular. Preparation of financial reports will also mean that PowerPoint skills will be advanced. It is important that the candidate understands this is a small office environment, hence we are seeking a highly disciplined and self-motivated candidate, with a ‘can do’ attitude, who possesses a willingness to contribute, determinedly and professionally, whether the task is large or small. Attention to detail, coupled with discretion is also a key factor to success in this role.

We are seeking candidates with 3-5 years of professional experience and a strong, stable career history. Excellent research and analytical skills, combined with common sense and negotiation acumen are vital in this position.
