• General clerical and administrative duties including answering phones, meeting and schedule coordination, preparing expense reports, producing correspondence, and travel coordination.
• Maintain an awareness of the Executive's obligations (internal and external) in order to proactively assist, organize, and anticipate needs.
• Effectively communicate and interact with employees at all levels.

Qualifications
• 10+ months of administrative assistant experience at a talent agency, management company and/or entertainment law firm.
• Ability to work well under pressure; meet tight deadlines; manage multiple projects and expectations; and maintain a sharp focus while managing competing priorities.
• Attention to detail and strong organization skills are a must.
• Strong interpersonal skills, while understanding the importance of maintaining confidentiality.
• Strong command of the Microsoft Office suite and in particular Word, Excel & PowerPoint.
• Adept at quickly learning new processes and technology.
