It's delivering support at the heart of a world famous institution

It's feeling inspired to deliver to the very highest standards, and it’s supporting The Royal Family in their official duties. This is what makes working for the Royal Household exceptional.

As part of the Central support team, you'll take on a role of unique variety. Providing comprehensive support to a Senior Manager, you'll prioritise and manage multiple requests, coordinate diaries, meetings and appointments, alongside complex travel arrangements and correspondence management.

You'll have exposure across the organisation, liaising daily at a senior level and building relationships with colleagues and external organisations.

You'll also assist with the co-ordination of the official programme, providing logistical support in the planning and execution of engagements, attending recces around the UK and skillfully supporting official visits.

It's a fast paced and high profile environment, and you'll have responsibility from day one. Yet you'll rise to the challenge and will be proud of the part you play.

We are recruiting two positions, one is a permanent contract, the other is a fixed-term Maternity cover.

You're a highly experienced PA used to supporting board level individuals, and you take pride in delivering work to the highest standards.

You'll have superb interpersonal and communication skills, and will be at ease working as part of a team, and liaising with people at all levels. With good judgement, sensitivity and a willingness to help others, you'll quickly become a trusted and indispensable member of the team.

Confident using a range of IT packages, along with excellent drafting skills and attention to detail, you'll be capable of producing a range of papers, presentations, correspondence and reports.

Having had extensive experience of diary management, you'll be capable of pre-empting situations, and also be confident to make informed decisions on the back of this.

With a proactive approach, you'll work efficiently with initiative and minimal direction, remaining calm and organised even when under pressure.
