Gordon and French

Agent’s Assistant

– Posted June 21st 2017

Gordon and French are still looking for that perfect Senior Assistant. While we have had many really good applicants we still feel that we haven’t found The One! Fitting into a small team is almost as important as your experience. We love what we do and finding the right combination of ability and personality to fit seamlessly in to our team can take time.

The perfect candidate will support a list of established and emerging talent, so must have experience, passion, impeccable organisational skills, and be a collaborator. This really isn’t an entry level position as there will be autonomy over certain areas of the list and this will need professional deftness. It’s difficult to put a time on the amount of experience required, as everyone develops at different speeds, but please get in touch if you think you fit our criteria and are looking for a new and exciting challenge.
