Pros: flexible working hours/great people to work with
Cons: uncertainity of the future of the company
I arrive in the office at 9:45am, I would then go through the two Director's diaries that I work for to check that there have been no overnight changes to meetings/cancelled meetings/new meetings going into diaries/meeting clashes.
Meet with the Directors should they so wish to see if they have any particular tasks for the day.
Then I would check my emails, pick up any actions that need to be carried out and then get on with them.
If I am in the process of arranging overseas travel, I would check the status and arrange for tickets to be issued, print off itineries, hotel confirmations and add all of the information to the person that is travelling's diary.
Throughout the day diaries are continually changing so I spend the majority of my day making sure that they are all flowing smoothly.
Around 14:00 when Amercia starts their working day I then make contact with the CMO's PA to see if there is anything we need to work on together.
I leave the office at 16:00 and then log back onto the system remotely in the evening to enable me to maintain contact with America and the other LATAM Countries that we work with and action any emails/meeting requests that are coming in from these countries.
I have learned to adapt from working for local GEO's to managing six times zones efficiently when the Company went Global.
My direct Management have an easy going approach and are happy to leave me to my own devices.
My Co-Workers are a fantastic bunch and are a pleasure to work with.
Hardest part of my job is also the most enjoyable part of my job which is ensuring that the ever changing – more... diaries are working for my Directors.and making sure their day and mine runs efficiently, calmly and smoothly. – less
