What is the mission of the Executive Assistant role?

While you will perform traditional administrative duties (such as expense processing, calendar management, travel planning and various administrative activities), your goal will be to simplify and automate these activities so you can spend more time leading key projects and/or processes for the leaders you support, while also improving and ensuring team efficiency.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Maintain calendars and schedule appointments, making judgments and recommendations with little guidance to resolve conflicts
  • Event planning
  • Coordinate large group leadership meetings throughout the year and be accountable for all aspects of the logistics

  • Arrange travel by becoming familiar with the specific and detailed needs of the Exec. Leadership team; process visa applications (domestic and international)
  • Process and approve expense reports (Concur)
  • Process purchase orders and invoices as needed (Oracle)
  • Filter and proactively action some emails for the VP & GM
  • Prepare special reports: gather, summarize and analyze data
  • Communicate widely and proactively with the applicable leadership teams and their assistants
  • Support key leader ad hoc requests
  • Support developing the purpose, messaging and outcomes of various leadership team meetings, business updates and town hall meetings
  • Ensure efficient and effective planning and execution of meetings for the leaders you support
  • Seek opportunities to improve speed, quality and other outcomes for these executives and, at times, their teams
  • Be prepared to share your views and ideas about how to improve
  • Other responsibilities may be assigned as needed

While much of your time will be accounted for based on the above-referenced administrative support activities, some of your time can be discretionary with you proactively determining where and how to make a broader impact at Avery Dennison and Vestcom.

  • Ability to navigate within the organization to get things done, a strategic self-starter and a self-finisher
