The Role…

We are looking for a high caliber C-suite senior Executive Assistant to join our fast-paced and ever-moving business. This position is a maternity cover contract for up to 12 months.


Supporting the Group Chief People officer, this role requires attention to detail, solid organisational skills, and the ability to meet tight deadlines while juggling multiple critical requests across global teams. The Executive Assistant will act as a seamless extension of the Executive and will work closely with other Executive Assistants throughout the organisation.

You will be a detail oriented, experienced planner with the demonstrated ability to respond effectively and efficiently while maintaining flexibility, composure and a good sense of humor.

You'll need to understand the business priorities of the Executive, demonstrate the ability to proactively anticipate needs and drive improvements to build capacity for the leadership team. A high level of integrity and discretion in handling confidential information as well as professionalism in dealing with senior executives inside and outside of the company is critical.

You will possess the ability to complete complex tasks quickly with little to no guidance, react with appropriate urgency to situations that require a quick turnaround, and take effective action without having to know the whole picture.


What You'll be Doing…

  • Diary management: Ensure diary commitments, documents, and travel arrangements are managed effectively, dealing proactively and calmly with any problems
  • Travel management: Coordinate travel and accommodation requirements, including itineraries and logistics, across multiple time-zones. Research and forward-thought in regard to any COVID-related restrictions and planning necessary
  • Meeting management: Scheduling of internal and external meetings – planning, arranging, preparing rooms, equipment, meeting papers and, where necessary, organising catering and, in some cases, minute taking, meet & greet visitors, etc
  • Expense management: Processing work and travel related expenses on Oracle in a timely manner and respecting deadlines. Raising POs in Oracle and arranging for certain invoices to be processed
  • Work closely with the Chief of Staff to the Group CPO, to ensure the effective running of the CPOs office
  • Plan and orchestrate work to ensure the senior executives' priorities are met, organisational goals are achieved, and best practices are upheld
  • Collating and circulating updates for internal memos, reports and documents
  • Support the planning and execution of team events
  • Establish relationships with EAs/PAs and other staff across the business in key locations
  • Ability to work flexibly, such as assisting with travel/logistics out of office hours on occasion, or may sometimes be expected to work a longer than average day to fulfil certain priorities that arise
  • Flutter is a global company and travel to overseas offices may be required from time to time


What We're Looking For…

  • Proven experience supporting a C-suite executive at a FTSE 100
  • Experience working within a fast-paced technology or digital organisation
  • Excellent interpersonal skills with an ability to work with a variety of styles and personalities
  • Proactive, flexible team player willing to do what it takes to get the job done; adaptable and enjoys a challenge
  • Proficiency in Microsoft Office and other office productivity tools, with aptitude to learn new software and systems
  • Effective and comfortable dealing with people at all levels of seniority
  • The ability to stay calm under pressure with a mature outlook and approach
