What It Takes To Be A Stand-Out Executive Assistant

You’ll need the following qualifications and skills to be competitive for any executive assistant role, especially if you’re up against professionals with a lot of experience.
Some sort of business or administrative qualification. While you do not require any formal qualifications to work as an administrative assistant, you will need some level of education to work as an executive assistant. Suppose you’re looking into executive assistant recruitment in Sydney, Melbourne, or Brisbane. In that case, it can be advantageous to have a Certificate IV in Business Administration or even a Bachelor of Business Administration.
Skills with IT and technology. There aren’t many jobs left where some level of computer skills aren’t required. If you’re working as an executive assistant in Sydney, Melbourne, or Brisbane, you’ll need basic computer literacy and Microsoft Office skills at the bare minimum. Depending on the business and the industry, you may even be required to handle the executive’s social media accounts, so it can help to be confident with digital technology.
Impeccable organisational skills. You’ll need to be the most organised person in the business. After all, you’ll need to handle your own to-do list, delegate and manage the tasks of other assistants, and keep on top of the executive’s busy schedule. You’ll frequently be doing multiple tasks at once, so prioritisation and organisation are a must.
Excellent communication skills. You need exemplary written and verbal communication skills to be an executive assistant. Quite often, you’ll be liaising and negotiating on behalf of the executive, so your communication skills need to be of an exceptionally high standard.
Managing assistants. If the office has any team assistants, administrative assistants, or receptionists on staff, you may need to manage these roles and delegate tasks throughout the day.
Handling correspondence on behalf of the executive. You will need to accept and make phone calls, answer emails, and review incoming reports and mail.
Taking care of the executive’s schedule. This includes scheduling meetings, booking meeting rooms, and managing their social engagements.
Liaising between stakeholders. You may need to be the point of contact between the executive and colleagues or important stakeholders.
Producing reports and presentations. You’ll need to know how to do in-depth research to create well-informed reports and presentations. You’ll also need to understand how the executives filing system and databases work.
