Hammad, the founder and Director of our experience design consultancy is a busy guy. Very busy. He spends most of his day looking after our clients, training people in UX, working on strategy and 100 other things – before going home to be a dad to a growing family.
He’s an entrepreneurial guy and has a number of new and existing ventures that wouldbenefit from more focused time. So, we’re looking for a talented person to take on the unique role being created – Executive PA.
Hammad is very well supported by Entropii co-founder and Operations Director, Duncan (who manages the studio workflow on a day-to-day basis), but there are some exciting things happening that mean they both need some additional, but more importantly – specialist support to help make the strategy a reality.
Some of the brief is top-secret, due to the projects you’ll be working on, but needless to say it all fits in with the typical duties of an Executive PA, but with the fun, charm and satisfaction of being in a creative agency.
- Supporting the Directors in their business strategy and growth plans
- Event organising and management
- Social media management and digital marketing cross-over
- Diary management
- Call handling, messages and correspondence
- HR & career management support
- Data gathering, analysing and reporting
- Networking and building client and partner relationships
- Light financial management: expenses, invoicing, suppliers, credit control
Most likely, you’ll be degree educated, which will give us some confidence that you are of a good level of intelligence. Most important though is your personality, as it will be imperative that you are likable by us and those we work with (particularly clients and partners, who you will have a lot of contact with). We really need somebody fun, friendly and fast-paced to keep up with the ideas being generated, but capable, efficient and innovative enough to help get things done.

- Vocal, outgoing personality
- Ability to handle pressure and deadlines
- Ambitious, reliable, stable, committed, passionate and capable
- Able to write high quality emails, documents and presentations (inc styling)
- Exceptionally well organised and a calm, friendly approach
- Fun, easy to get on with and likable – by both colleagues and clients
- Mature and intelligent personality
- Multi-lingual skills a huge bonus (particularly Arabic, Mandarin or German) – not essential
