sensitive, confidential and busy workload whilst staying connected with the function’s
leadership team. You will work with senior stakeholders across the BGL Group to
ensure tasks are dealt with swiftly and efficiently, displaying the ability to
relate and communicate with people across the organisation. . There may be
times when you will need to work alongside other departmental PAs during peak
periods of the year therefore you will need to be both flexible and quick to
adapt to new stakeholders.

and work under pressure. You will ensure commitments, papers and travel
arrangements are managed effectively, promoting an efficient working
environment. You will organise off site conferences, team building days, and
many other ad hoc events within your daily role.

planning and preparing for future events and generally working in a proactive

corporate PowerPoint decks to a high standard which will be used often to
present to the Group Executive Committee.
