ESE focuses its operations in 4 core areas: individual membership and membership services, publishing of scientific journals, organisation of its annual congress and educational events, and the development of bespoke projects to advance clinical care and research.

To support its ongoing growth, we are now recruiting an Executive Assistant.

We are looking for an experienced professional who can work across a range of activities and tasks and who has a flexible approach. A willingness and ability to travel (mainly European travel) and fluency in English are required. Solid knowledge of a second major European language is an advantage. The role is full time (35 hours per week), although there is some flexibility.

If you feel you have the experience and the proactive approach we are looking for, then please get in touch.
