Business and executive support

Do you have experience as a PA or EA, enjoy project work and being at the forefront of a busy, high-functioning human resources team? If so, this could be just the role for you.

As business and executive support, you will provide invaluable support to Bromford’s senior leadership team, enabling them to manage their time effectively to focus on delivering our services, company initiatives and programmes.

You will be the first point of contact for the HR service, and the eyes and ears of your team. You must be proactive and take ownership of requests; ensuring only relevant queries, meetings and information reach your leaders.

You will be responsible for sourcing and owning key projects, including opportunities to work toward our exciting new strategy. We want to see you take an idea, progress, and run with it, with limited direction.

Some of the responsibilities include:

  • Carry out research and analysis of internal and external information; be proactive in identifying relevant issues, events and opportunities which may affect the service areas or company and raise these to your leaders
  • Provide added value for leaders, for instance; supporting with the preparation of presentations, documents and spreadsheets, raising purchases, coordinating invoices and cyclical activities
  • Assist your leaders in developing and delivering work plans/service plans and priorities
  • Use independent judgement to arrange high level, competing priorities
  • Co-ordinate performance indicators and statistics for the team to feed into business-wide dashboards and reporting.
  • Provide PA support to your leaders where required, including proactive diary and email management, preparation and collation of documents, organising meetings and travel/accommodation arrangements


  • Previous PA experience, or significant experience in a senior administrative role
  • Demonstrable experience of delivering a complex workload
  • Track record of proactive management, managing competing priorities and working to tight and strict deadlines
  • Project/performance management.

If you have recently completed an apprenticeship or business degree, or have a background working as a personal assistant (PA) or executive assistant (EA), this could be a great opportunity for you.

Closing date for applications Monday 8th June with initial virtual interviews taking place on Friday 19th June.
