Life for any of us can change in an instant. Experiencing a road traffic accident, a major stroke or being diagnosed with dementia can happen completely unexpectedly and can change our lives forever.

There are hundreds of different neurological conditions including stroke, brain tumour, brain injury, Alzheimer’s disease and many rarer ones too.

The Brain Charity offers emotional support, practical help and social activities to anyone with a neurological condition and to their family, friends and carers.

The Executive Assistant to the CEO is a strategically important role within the organisation and imperative to the success of the charity.

A key objective of the role is to alleviate time pressure on the CEO.

The EA to the CEO not only fully understands the strategic objectives of the organisation, but they also proactively identify business needs and opportunities to ensure that those objectives are achieved.

The proactive nature of the role involves scouring the CEO’s activities and their own work patterns for any inefficiencies to maximise their time. And in turn, this helps the charity to maximise its return on its investment in the CEO.

The Executive Assistant to the CEO holds a unique and privileged position within the organisation, whereby the nature of their role means that they have detailed knowledge of, and productive working relationships within, all areas of the charity and with its external stakeholders.

Aiding positive communications is another vital role and the EA must always act as the eyes and ears of the CEO, which means being alert to potential issues, conflicts, or any other information that may be helpful. This close partnership with the CEO requires a high level of loyalty to the CEO and belief in the strategic aims.

The EA will also provide executive personal assistance to the CEO and secretarial support to the Chair of the Board of Trustees.
