Often, time spent as an Administrative Assistant will be beneficial, and many Executive Assistants need to know the inner workings of a company well, in case they are ever asked to stand in for their boss or represent company policies in daily interactions with customers and clients.

Requirements for being a successful Executive Assistant

The skills you’ll need to prove yourself as an Executive Assistant include outstanding written and spoken communication, attention to detail and flexibility, allowing you to smoothly run the daily office operations and manage the appointments of your executive with precision. You will need to follow instructions from a number of Executives and then report back to external and internal clients in an effective way, representing the highest level of management. You will need an in-depth knowledge of company policy and latest developments. Given the high pressure of this role you need to be very organised and be able to prioritise workloads efficiently. As Executive Assistants are given significant responsibility in the office, previous office management experience is a plus, and professionalism in dealing with clients and other employees is key. Solid IT, time management and organisational skills will serve you well in this role.
