Executive Assistants - Metropolitan Detroit Area


$50,000-$70,000 plus outstanding benefits!

This is a unique opportunity for an Executive Assistant who prefers a warm, family atmosphere to that of a corporate environment. Although you will be providing support to the President and other Executives of the company, this will not be your typical demanding, fast-paced EA scenario. If you’d like to utilize your skills working for an employer who values dedication, hospitality and exceptional customer service, this may be the career opportunity you’ve been searching for. This translates to having a friendly, service minded attitude, whether that means getting a cup of coffee for your employer or bringing them lunch, with a sincere desire to do whatever it takes to help make their day run smoothly. In addition to requiring the ability to handle confidential matters, this individual needs to be extremely self-motivated. There are many times when the Executive is out of the office and the Assistant will need to create their own projects to update and enhance current practices. The Executive Assistant will be replacing someone who has been in this role for many years. We are seeking another very long-term hire.

  • Handling correspondence and screening phone calls as needed
