The mission of A.SPIRE is to ensure the development of enabling technologies and best practices along all the stages of large scale existing value chain productions that will contribute to a resource efficient process industry.
As Junior Executive Assistant, you will be in charge of the support to A.SPIRE team on aspects related to the administration, logistics, dealing with suppliers and contracts, supplies and membership administration aspects and in the scheduling and organization of meetings and events. You will also manage the agenda of the Executive Director and will support her directly in the organization of the Board meetings.
You are expected to have a high level of attention to detail, capacity for multitasking and to self organise yourself taking full responsibility of your tasks while having a great teamwork spirit. You will communicate with senior- level internal and external contacts and will be regularly exposed to confidential data.
