We are looking to recruit an effective, bright and personable team administrator with a can-do attitude to provide reliable, efficient and pro-active administrative support to the sales team and wider business. In addition to the administrative support, one of the primary focuses for this role will be the coordination of building management and facilities at our Amsterdam office. The right individual will understand how to successfully manage an office, juggling the day-to-day factors that make a comfortable and efficient working environment as well as focusing on the core building infrastructure and framework. As such, you will require strong interpersonal skills; an ability to deal with front-line employee queries and build relationships with internal and external stakeholders, while also having a solid technical understanding of corporate office infrastructure, e.g. power supplies, air conditioning, utilities, managing contractors, etc. Any knowledge of commercial real estate, office leases, dealing with landlords, managing agents and other third party contractors is useful.
