Good storytelling starts with great listening. At Audible, that means each role and every project has our audience in mind. Because the same people who design, develop, and deploy our products also happen to use them. To us, that speaks volumes.

We're looking for an energetic and self-motivated Executive Assistant/Office Manager to support the Head of Operations, APAC based out of Sydney. This is a 6 month contract role. This exciting role requires attention to detail, the ability to meet tight deadlines, great organisational skills, and the ability to juggle multiple critical requests. A high level of integrity and discretion in handling confidential information, and professionalism in dealing with senior professionals inside and outside the company is critical, as is a good sense of humour! Your responsibilities will include management of complex calendar and scheduling requirements; acting as a liaison for the leadership team; driving key team activities (such as staff meeting agendas, space planning), travel coordination and event management. And having fun at work and helping others do the same. We value the skills that allow you to "look around corners"; superior knowledge of Microsoft Suite as well as exceptional written, verbal, and interpersonal communication skills. We're a fast growing business and whilst the role will be demanding and we face new challenges every day there is a strong sense of team. If this is the environment you excel in this could be the role for you. This role is required to work in a global environment so will require a degree of flexibility.

As an Executive Assistant/Office Manager, you will...
  • Manage complex meeting calendar and scheduling requirements.
  • Develop schedules and prioritise meetings and projects, proactively identifying and resolving scheduling conflicts.
  • Manage the business meetings cadence and improve the scheduling and experience of these meetings.
  • Manage travel and expenses for senior members of the team.
  • Drive, manage, and execute on a calendar of team events across APAC.
  • Be the office management lead and AU location ambassador.
  • Lead on all administrative support functions, including organising documents, meeting follow up and preparation and meeting agendas.
  • Track and help drive completion of key deliverables.
  • Provide general support of team activities as required.
