PA/Administrator for The Quo Group

Salary: Dependent on experience

Start date: ASAP

The Quo Group is a management consultancy, formed in 1993, which helps organisations to achieve better operating performance by getting the best out of the right people. Our area of speciality is in understanding why people behave as they do and how work place behaviour can be managed effectively to achieve better results.

We help clients (who include Starbucks, Dentons. Align Technology, Cancer Research, Royal London, Anglian Water) to identify, develop, engage, motivate and retain high performing talent. Over the years we’ve helped out clients to achieve better performance across sales, service, safety, efficiency and productivity – by getting the best out of the right people. Specific services offered to achieve this include talent management, assessment, coaching, learning and development, employee engagement, customer experience improvement and management effectiveness.

The role

The leading area of focus for this role is in working closely to support the diary management, logistical planning, client liaison and administrative needs of the firm’s busy Chief Executive and Managing Partner. The CEO, is based at the London office, but often travelling across the country and, occasionally, other countries – selling Quo Group’s services and playing a lead role in delivering work with clients.

The PA/Administrator will also work closely with the Managing Partner (who is based in the Midlands), a further London based practice partner and several ‘associates’ – who work very regularly with Quo Group.

The CEO, Managing Partner and practice partner require regular assistance in note taking, proposal writing, PowerPoint presentation construction and planning.

We are looking for a confident, proactive person who uses their own initiative and thinks and plans ahead. Good organisation and prioritisation skills are essential, with the ability to handle more than one task at any time. As the role is varied, some periods will be busier than others – so the ability to be able to very quickly flex upwards and achieve work within strict and pressing deadlines is vital.

The ability to work effectively and calm when under pressure, with a flexible attitude towards working hours and style along with attention to detail is a must. Somebody who is able to think 1 step ahead and view the bigger picture when under pressure will thrive in this role and environment.

Advanced MS Office expertise (across Word, PowerPoint & Excel) is a must have.
