Executive Assistant Jobs & Recruitment

Looking for your next Executive Assistant job or employee?

We've been helping New Zealand's Executive Assistants find jobs throughout Auckland and Wellington for more than 20 years. If you're an Executive Assistant superstar or a manager looking for one, we'd love to hear from you.

Entry requirements

Our clients often prefer Executive Assistants who have at least two or three years' experience in a Personal Assistant position supporting a senior manager or multiple stakeholders. Managers may also expect to see a proven background in minute taking, diary management, arranging meetings and travel, and writing and formatting documents.

As an Executive Assistant will need to work closely with their direct report, personal attributes play an important role in hiring the right person. Executive Assistants should be able to relate to people from a wide range of backgrounds and cultures, including different levels of management. They should also be friendly, approachable and discreet, and have good judgement and character.

Salary range

$60,000 - $95,000

What could you be doing?

An Executive Assistant will often provide clerical and administrative support for senior or executive-level managers, such as a Chief Executive Officer. You may be expected to do some or all the following:

  • Organising meetings, preparing agendas and taking minutes

  • Taking messages, answering queries and screening incoming telephone calls and visitors

  • Organising diaries, including booking in appointments and travel arrangements

  • Creating and filing letter and email correspondence and documents

  • Other ad-hoc administrative duties
