Girlguiding is seeking a first class PA to support our Chief Guide and Deputy Chief Guide; the two most senior volunteers in our organisation.
The successful applicant will be required to provide the highest quality Personal Assistant and administrative support as well as acting as the initial point of contact for the Chief Guide’s office. You will manage the Chief Guide and Deputy Chief Guides’s diary, travel and accommodation; coordinating agendas, briefings and other meeting materials as required. This role will work closely with the Chief Guide, Deputy Chief Guide, Lead Volunteers, Chief Commissioners, Senior Managers and a wide range of volunteers and staff.

Discreet, professional and highly efficient you will be able to handle confidential information with diplomacy and tact, and build effective relationships with a diverse range of internal and external stakeholders. This is a demanding and busy role that will require excellent time management and prioritisation skills.
Due to the nature of the work, some weekend and evening working will be required, including at sites outside of London, for which time off in lieu will be given.
