Saïd Business School are recruiting for an EA to the Associate Dean reporting to the Associate Dean of MBA & Executive Degrees for a one year maternity cover.

This is an exciting opportunity for you to support the work of the Associate Dean, one of the School’s senior leadership posts.

You will be working with the School’s leadership and professional support staff and you will ensure the work of the Associate Dean is well-coordinated and completed in a professional manner reflective of the School’s world-class ambitions.

This position requires a keen awareness of what is going on across the School and the external context in which it operates, as well as EA best practice and the interpersonal skills to relate to and communicate with all levels within the University and with external agencies and maintaining confidentiality.

The workload may be demanding, requiring excellent personal organisation and a responsive, flexible approach to work, as well as the ability to work to tight deadlines.

You must exercise sound judgment and the utmost discretion in carrying out responsibilities, many of which will involve a high level of confidentiality.

To be considered for this role you will be required to demonstrate experience of supporting executive-level officers and show you have experience of international diary management and travel.

You should be familiar with complex diary management and budget management.

You will need to be able to provide the Associate Dean with information necessary for decision-making, monitoring and resolving issues and problems, and track multiple initiatives and/or projects to completion and also assist with managing the demands of those operating within the wider MBA and Executive Degrees team.

You will need to have experience of preparing presentations, have excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to collaborate with individuals across the School and outside of it.

You will need to be highly organised with the ability to keep track of a range of diverse activities and to make connections between them and have the ability to resolve problems and make decisions independently when appropriate but knowing when to escalate an issue upwards to seniors.
