The Opportunity

We are looking for an ambitious Business Executive to join our small and friendly team. This is a varied role where you will gain valuable experience in all parts of our business including providing PA support, administration, marketing, business planning, sales, events and financial administration. This is, therefore, a really unique opportunity to expand your skillset and learn first-hand about everything required to successfully run a business.

This position does involve some remote working. However, we do have office space based in Abingdon, which you will be required to work from on occasion.

* PA Duties – Providing support to our Managing Director across his businesses and voluntary work (diary management, organising meetings, taking phone calls, responding to emails)

* Administration - Responsible for writing job descriptions, advertising jobs, writing interview confirmations and applications on behalf of candidates and general office administration

* Business - Working closely with the MD around the planning and implementation of the growth strategy for the business, regularly updating the business plan, and creating clear and defined goals focused on business growth

* Marketing - Responsible for day-to-day running of all social media channels, creating content for our website, external websites and magazines. As well as working closely with our MD and marketing manager to plan and implement marketing strategies, both offline and online

* Events – We are closely linked to an Oxfordshire based Business Networking Events business, so you will be responsible for supporting, planning and often attending these events.

* Sales - Taking an active involvement in talking to candidates, pitching jobs and attending regular networking events and client meetings.

* Finance - Day-to-day management of the accountancy software (Xero), general bookkeeping and financial duties with the support of the MD and an external accountant

Due to the varied nature of this role, we are not expecting experience in all parts but the successful candidate must be motivated and ambitious to learn about all aspects of the role.
