Executive Assistant to CEO Staffing

Executive Assistant to CEO Recruitment

The chief executive officer is by far the most important leader of any company, large or small. The success of a business depends on the CEO. This role calls for strategic insight, intelligence, swift execution, perseverance, inspiration and the ability to motivate and lead a team. An executive assistant to support the CEO requires a unique set of technical and soft skills, such as discretion, forward-thinking, flexibility, loyalty, dedication, poise, resilience and the ability to relate to people at every level. The executive assistant to the CEO is the right hand to the person who oversees all the key functions of a business.

The key to a successful relationship between a CEO and their executive assistant is professional compatibility and mutual respect. The successful pairing of the two is almost like arranging a professional marriage, which is why excellence in finding the right executive assistant to the CEO is paramount.

CEO Assistant Staffing: What We Look for

An executive assistant to a chief executive officer must be a top-performing administrative professional and must be totally committed to the success of the business. When looking for executive assistants to CEO staffing opportunities we look for candidates with prior relevant experience, who have worked one-on-one with a C-level executive before. We look for poise, intelligence, a natural ability to prioritize, and impeccable communication skills. Longevity in prior positions, discretion, and the ability to navigate issues with employees and clients throughout the business are also qualities we seek. Finally, we look for candidates who will have the right chemistry with the CEO, which is an intangible but critical ingredient for success.
