Executive Assistant to the Mayor


This is a demanding yet exciting and interesting role that few people get to experience and because of this, we are looking for a high-performing and resilient individual who is looking for the next step in their EA career.

Having supported a CEO or Minister in previous roles, the expectations of this role won't faze you as you sort through the many conflicting priorities to provide the Mayor with those that need to be acted on and those that can be delegated.

We're not looking for just anyone to fill this role. We need an EA with extensive experience and who can multi-task, is adept at managing a complex diary, and who excels at preparing professional correspondence. Day-to-day, the range of actions required is diverse and draws on many parts of the city's activities and services. You will be reliable, proactive and resourceful and have a natural ability to gain the buy-in of your colleagues as you work closely with others to support the Mayor.

What differentiates us from the rest is the diversity in the relationships that you will manage, the involvement in local and regional government, central government, Council subsidiaries and external stakeholders, and the dynamics of working for a large organisation.

You will be a positive "people person" who brings high levels of initiative, flexibility and exceptional communication and relationship building skills.

If you're also passionate about making things happen in Christchurch then Join us now!
