Full Time or Part Time 8.00 - 10.00 USD Type: Hourly

Click here to watch the video & learn more about the role from me:

I am the owner and CEO of JobRack and I am looking for an Executive Assistant / Virtual Office Manager to help run both business and personal aspects of life.

I am looking for someone who is available for 6- 8 hours per day five days per week and is happy to help me with everything from event organisation, email and calendar management, book-keeping, travel research / bookings, through to research and a whole lot more too!

I would prefer full-time however if you have great experience and are an experienced EA / Office Manager then a few fewer hours each day could work.

You MUST have experience in a similar role and really WANT to do this for the long term.

A combined ‘Executive Assistant / Office manager’ is probably the closest term to what I’m looking for. Being a remote company we don’t have an office but there are still lots of things for you to be looking after, helping things run smoothly as well as being hands-on doing tasks too.

I have a busy and often complicated life!

I run a rapidly growing business, I travel a lot, I organise conferences, dinners and events regularly, I'm very active and I like to have fun.

I’m looking for someone with extensive experience in all these things and more to help me with the day to day running of the team here at JobRack as well as other aspects of my life.

The Executive Assistant/Virtual Office Manager I’m looking to add to the team would have three main outcomes:

  1. Help the CEO (and sometimes the team) focus on key business and personal priorities by managing activities and reducing distractions to their headspace.
  2. Collaborate with the CEO to explore new ideas and experiments of things we could be doing.
  3. Enrich and uplift everyone’s lives through identifying and setting up events, get-togethers, activities and other ways of helping us to continue to be an awesome team.
  • Responsible for managing email, LinkedIn, and entrepreneurship communities for the CEO
  • Responsible for ensuring a clear and concise daily agenda is in place with key information processed before and after CEO calls.
  • Responsible for onboarding and offboarding activities related to hiring
  • Responsible for internal financial processes including reviews and management of internal tools and spend
  • Responsible for doing client research for new sales calls
  • Responsible for surveying the team about events (lunch & learns, monthly team meetings) and setting up events
  • Responsible for being a culture champion in slack (polls, events, gifs, celebrations)

Tools we use for communication and work management

You’ll know you’re the right person for this role if you have:

  • 3+ years of experience as an operations, administrative or executive assistant
  • Experience managing email, travel, events and activities
  • An obsession with getting the details right and keeping things moving
  • An ability to operate independently and reliably accomplish tasks

  • Passionate about learning new things
  • Great with numbers and financials.
  • Looking to be my assistant/office manager: you are NOT an agency looking to delegate my work to other people nor are you just looking for any job before pursuing the thing you really want.

What’s in it for you?

  • Fully remote opportunity: location is unimportant, as long as you are available, enthusiastic, committed, passionate, and more or less permanently online

You know you're in the right place when Mondays go from dreadful to exciting and energy-boosting! :)" Ilma
