Personal Assistant | Johannesburg, Gauteng | 07 Nov 2012
Productive and fun working place.
A typical day is thinking on my feet and being attentive and responsive to ad hoc requests and what I like to refer to as organised chaos. Working in the legal department means being prepared for the unexpected at all times. My co-workers are lawyers, so you have to be able to think on your feet and be very organised at all times. I keep the office organised and coordinate as these are my strenghts. I'm able to effectively work with all levels of staff and I try to be one step ahead at all times. The hardest part of my job is dealing with constant crisis management associates - since this is a marketing environment and they usually come up with the 'most interesting' concepts and last minute requests which we in the legal team have to assist with and try to resolve or produce agreements to fit the situation. The most enjoyable part of my job is that I'm able to balance a full time job and my part time studies, which I appreciate and the fact that this is a very interesting and fun environment.
Consour team is staff with contractors and they come and go every six months, in the last 3 years i've trained 10 admin staff.
