A Personal Assistant is a key figure within a busy department, and we are looking for an experienced PA to support out Director of Facilities and Engineering. This role is on a 12 month fixed term contract basis.

About the Role

You will be able to adapt and be flexible with differing requirements and necessary actions, being a proactive and seamless support to the Director. Additionally, you’ll manage Workday processes, invoices and expenses. 

Being a focal point of contact for the Director, your responsibilities will include:

  • Email inbox management and diary checking
  • Domestic travel booking
  • Juggling team and wider business queries
  • Keeping a constant stream of communication and updates

The key to being successful in this role is adaptability and organisation while being able to prioritise and be flexible in your way of working in order to organise different schedules with different people.

Communication with the Director and your wider business stakeholders is vital as you will be a focal point for questions and queries, and naturally pick up what, when and to whom information needs to be provided.

You will be part of the wider PA network within Harrods, a team which supports each other.

  • Demonstrate proactivity, adaptability and flexibility.
  • Possess strong attention to detail.
  • Be a problem solver, confident in presenting solutions to resolve issues.
