London – Hybrid working

We are seeking a dynamic, efficient and dedicated Executive Officer (EO) to provide comprehensive support to our leadership team and generally across the wider team. This is a crucial role within the organisation, contributing to our strategic and operational objectives.

The Faculty of Medical Leadership and Management is a charity that develops the healthcare leaders of tomorrow, and this exciting opportunity for an experienced Executive Officer is an important role working across the whole organisation at an exciting time of change for the Faculty.

About the role
Reporting to the Chief Executive Officer, this is a vital role in the organisational infrastructure which will support the leadership team with effective time management and administration of cross-cutting corporate activities that contribute to FMLM’s strategic and operational objectives.

The Executive Officer will act as a gatekeeper, filtering communications and managing priorities. They will also undertake research, prepare reports, and coordinate projects on behalf of the leadership team. Essentially, they serve as a “right-hand” person, enabling the executive functions to focus on strategic tasks by handling administrative responsibilities and ensuring smooth operations.

The EO will manage complex and shifting schedules, provide informed and relevant briefings in advance of meetings and ensure actions are followed up. You’ll assist the wider team with special projects, initiatives, or events, which may involve research, analysis, and coordination with a range of stakeholders.

You’ll also provide vital finance support with administration and assist in the preparation of financial reports.

About you
You’ll bring experience of providing personal assistant/executive level support to multiple senior stakeholders in a fast-paced corporate environment and being the first point of contact for a CEO or equivalent. You’ll likely have sound business administration expertise and possibly a related qualification.

You’ll be a self-starter who enjoys problem-solving and pre-empting issues, working at pace and with multiple stakeholders. You’ll be able to manage multiple and conflicting priorities, often to tight deadlines, and have excellent attention to detail.

With sound judgement, you’ll be flexible, adaptable and enthusiastic, and as you’ll be working with executive level colleagues, have the ability to exercise discretion, diplomacy and confidentiality. A commitment to equality, diversity, inclusion and belonging is a must, as is a strong commitment to customer service, and excellent communication skills.
