  • Full Time
  • Up until most recently, I have been PA/Office Manager at W Communications, a PR and multi-channel marketing agency where I did everything from extensive diary management for the CEO and the MD, processing a high volume of expenses claims alongside facilities management, planning office social activities to improving the look and feel of the agency. On a daily basis, I worked on diary management, travel arrangements, scheduling meetings and liaising with both internal and external stakeholders. I also managed the MD’s inbox, which entailed drafting email and letter correspondence to send to stakeholders of varying levels; preparation of presentations and documents.
