The perfect candidate must work hard and drive for results, focus on deadline sensitivity with minimal guidance or supervision. As such, the candidate must be skilled at anticipating problems, proactively creating contingency plans, managing multiple priorities, problem-solving and organizing logistics. “Attention to detail” is a critical characteristic to be successful in this role. The ideal candidate is self-guided, while also working successfully in a team environment, building effective working relationships inside and outside of the group, and actively seeking to learn more about general business objectives, policies, standards, services, facilities, procedures, and related information. A key competency is the ability to collaborate with other assistants in the organization and throughout the company.
