This is a full-time permanent role in Melbourne.

Day to day you will report to the Melbourne Studio Manager but will be part of an integral and collaborative team of EAs who work as a single source of administration support to our entire AU staff group. You will excel in a dynamic and fast-paced environment, be proactive and have excellent attention to detail.

  • General business administration including raising purchase orders, confirm invoicing, maintaining database and registers
  • Managing studio visitor experience and protocol, answering incoming calls to our central AU incoming line
  • Coordinating office events, facilities and maintenance - CPD training sessions, office supplies, cleaners

  • Minimum 5 years professional experience incorporating providing responsive administrative assistance
  • Demonstrated solid computer skills and knowledge and experience in the use of cloud based business systems (we use G-Suite). 
  • It would be highly advantageous to have relevant experience and advanced skills in desktop publishing applications. Candidates with similar experience creating tenders or marketing collateral would be very interesting to us.
  • Demonstrated understanding of business systems, processes and technologies - all our operating systems are cloud-based.
  • A proactive and positive approach to role responsibilities with a strong attention to detail and the ability to prioritise.
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills, written and verbal, to a wide ranging audience.
  • Experience in the architecture, interior design or similar professional services industry would be highly regarded but not essential.

We offer the opportunity to bring your expertise to shape our team’s global footprint, collaborate in creative workplaces with the advantage of a progressive cloud-based environment supported by a competitive remuneration and benefits package.
