Executive Assistant/Project Manager (Vancouver)

By | June 25, 2019

My client, a high profile Real Estate Developer and Property Management firm Downtown is currently seeking an Executive Assistant/Project Manager to be the “right hand” to their Managing Director. This is MORE than an Administrative role. I am looking for someone who can execute in the absence of the Director and someone to work side by side with him on large Real Estate projects across Canada. The Executive Assistant/Project Manager contributes to my client’s goals by providing a wide range of administrative support to the Director by arranging for implementation of directives from executives and by coordinating administrative projects, and acting in the Director’s absence on urgent matters. In addition, there will be some personal assistance which may include correspondence, travel arrangements, errands, scheduling and bill payments. My client needs someone with energy who is smart and proactive, organized and knowledgeable with a Type A personality, a go-getter. Salary is $60K – $80K + bonus + excellent benefits + opportunity for career advancement. For immediate consideration, please call Abby Rubin (604) 836 – 2672 and email me a resume to Abby Rubin Personnel at abby@abbyrubin.com
