PA to the Executive Chairman
DC Thomson are looking for an amazing PA, to support Ellis Watson, our Executive Chairman of DC Thomson Media Group.
Ellis's role encompasses being CEO/Chair of some of our group companies, and this is an opportunity to have someone work in a fast-paced environment, where you should expect the unexpected.
In return for you being a selfless, positive-thinking, relentlessly chirpy, glass brimming full, productive machine of genius, we offer a massive variety of business model experience, management team types, daily opportunities to tell Ellis he's got something wrong, a good salary and even an occasional cup of tea.
You will tenaciously improve the efficiency, productivity and effectiveness of a relentlessly driven Chairman, becoming familiar with the people and progress of several of our group companies and organisations that he supports. You'll handle a variety of sensitive and confidential information, engaging with internal and external customers in a personable, effective and professional manner. Alongside these logistical and operational tasks, your personality and judgement will help represent the character and cultural values of the both Ellis and the company itself.
Experience of working as the sole PA/EA for senior manager/director/executive level is essential with the ability to go from the mundane and repetitive to the dynamically changing at a moment's notice – a kind demeanour is absolutely essential, and the ability to find the good and fun in adversity is not unhelpful. It's primarily attitude, work ethic, personality fit and positivity that will help us choose the right candidate.
The role will be predominantly based in Dundee with very occasional travel.
