PA and Office Support Part-time 25 hours a week - Sustainability Consultancy

Business entrepreneur with successful boutique business consultancy - specialising in sustainability- and interests in other embryo businesses seeks self-motivated, intelligent, assistant with a "can do" attitude.

You will ideally have had at least four years' experience working in a key support role for small businesses, in an environmental, construction, energy or related market.

Offices in Central Bristol and Paris. It's pretty much a "sink or swim" position, requiring commitment, good humour and a passion for making positive change. They are looking for someone who has experience in working for small businesses, and definitely very competent in Excel, MS Office and project management. You'll be expected to turn your hand to just about everything; so they are not looking for a conventional PA or administrator.

The hours are 10am to 3pm Monday to Friday, so would suit either someone returning to work or with a family. Hours could possibly be varied to suit.

You'll be working with clients that include some of the world's most successful companies, arranging events in the UK and France, handling diaries, supporting a team of consultants and (occasionally) managing crises. This position will suit someone who is quick thinking, able to act on their own initiative, hard-working and can cope with pressure. In return you'll be working with sparky, intelligent people and be rewarded well.

This role will not suit anyone who has worked extensively for large companies or the public sector. You must be hands on and must be able to appreciate how small businesses function. You will effectively be the HR, IT and communications, PA and admin "go to" person. You'll need to be bright, articulate, flexible and numerate. A good sense of humour, passion for the planet, an interest in sport and fitness, and a good understanding of people would all be useful attributes. The company encourages a good work-life balance and provides some unusual benefits such as free yoga classes for all team members.

The initial short list will be drawn up based on the content of applicants' CVs, so make yours interesting and relevant. Explain in the introduction why you think you would be suited to the role. The boss has a low boredom threshold.
