Based at HQ, Inchinnan and reporting to the Chief Operating Officer (COO) you will be responsible for providing administrative support whilst ensuring office/diary operations run smoothly. Working with discretion and confidentiality will be essential for the successful candidate.

  • Organising frequent overseas travel and preparing complex itineraries

  • Managing highly confidential information

A positive attitude is a pre-requisite together with a keen sense of humour. Individuals who fit our culture and values will have a high degree of professionalism but appreciate our non- corporate feel in a fun atmosphere.
