You’re an experienced Personal Assistant or a Senior Administrator looking for the next step.


Are you looking for excitement, pace and new challenges that will keep you on your feet, test your skills and provide you with the opportunity to shine in your next role?


You eat organisation, prioritisation and structure for breakfast, and you also love to bring process and order whilst working diligently at the detail level.


Engage is partnering with NWH Group to recruit a PA to support Husband and Wife Directors in the business. NWH is a family business and one of the UK’s fastest-growing waste management companies. They have a vibrant, fun culture where opportunities abound for those with the ambition and drive to achieve.


This role will constantly evolve, and no two days will be the same, so it’s not for the faint-hearted; however, there will be freedom to make decisions, take the initiative and learn.


What you do: (You’re the go-to person)


  • Provide personal support, including proactive and complex diary management, organising high-level meetings and large-scale events, preparing briefs, and managing correspondence from meetings.

  • Daily management of the personal diary of the Sales Director or else she would forget her Nanas birthday party.

  • Working to tight deadlines whilst still producing a high standard of work.

  • Organise all travel arrangements (international and domestic), accommodation, transfers and/or car rentals, itineraries, calendars, visas etc. and related expenses for the Sales Director and CEO.

  • Preparing presentations for any meetings/ events for the Director.

  • Manage personal portfolio insurances and private property portfolios.

  • Maintain and monitor personal budgets and expenses.

  • Input data accurately, update personal cash flow and keep all trackers updated daily.


About you: (A Directors Dream PA)


  • You like to solve problems, do things differently, and your standards are high; working to deadlines motivates you.

  • You’re curious, enthusiastic, versatile, and self-motivated with the ability to work well as part of a team and individually.

  • Of course, you’re confident working under pressure, managing several tasks simultaneously, and politically astute.

  • Juggling tasks is your forte; you would be bored with the same jobs daily.

  • You are a people person, interested in others and love building relationships.

  • Technology is your ‘go to’; you are an expert on Microsoft Office, including Office 365, Outlook, Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
