About the role: 

City of Bristol College is seeking to appoint a highly competent and proactive Executive PA to support the Principal. This position is full time, will require flexibility with working hours, and is based at the College Green centre in the city although there will be a requirement to regularly work from other college sites. The Executive PA will be responsible for: providing key support and diary management to the Principal; taking minutes at internal meetings and proactively following up actions; liaising with internal and external stakeholders; working closely with other PAs to senior staff and colleagues throughout the College, as required.

You will be a credible individual with excellent communication and influencing skills and the ability to build effective relationships. You will need to have the ability to demonstrate strong organisational and administration skills as well as be highly organised and able to prioritise and meet deadlines. You will be able to think on your feet, adapt to change and plan ahead to ensure the Principal meets deadlines, be fully equipped to attend relevant meetings, be prepared to work variable hours which will mean working outside of ‘normal’ office hours as required, and keep up to date on issues relating to the role.  You will also need to be able to build and maintain excellent working relationships with stakeholders, at all levels, internally and externally, as well as other members of College staff and students.

For a comprehensive list of the key responsibilities and duties, please refer to the job description.
