Executive Assistant Job at Groupon, Inc. – in London

Job Description

Groupon is an experiences marketplace that brings people more ways to get the most out of their city or wherever they may be. By enabling real-time mobile commerce across local businesses, live events and travel destinations, Groupon helps people find and discover experiences––big and small, new and familiar––that make for a full, fun and rewarding life. Groupon helps local businesses grow and strengthen customer relationships––resulting in strong, vibrant communities. Even with thousands of employees spread across multiple continents, we still maintain a culture that inspires innovation, rewards risk-taking and celebrates success.


We are looking for a proactive, organised and adaptable Executive Assistant to support several members of the EMEA leadership team. Supporting two VPs and the CFO, this role is critical in ensuring the efficient operation of EMEA Sales Teams. This position is key in assisting the VP in managing and prioritising competing demands for his/her time and attention.

We’re a “best of both worlds” kind of company. We’re big enough to have resources and scale, but small enough that a single person has a surprising amount of autonomy and can make a meaningful impact. We’re curious, fun, a little intense, and kind of obsessed with helping local businesses thrive. Does that sound like a great way to grow your career?

You’ll spend time on the following:
Heavy scheduling and calendar management (international and involving multiple stakeholders)

Keeping the calendars of the leadership team on track and helping them attend to and deliver things on time

Prioritising incoming requests and acting as a gatekeeper in order to optimise schedules

Organisation and planning team all hands meetings and outings

Heavy international travel planning – when travel is again permitted

Monitoring, responding to and distributing individual and group communications

Organising meetings (food orders, materials, room assignments, calendar invites)

Managing invoice payment, POs and expense reports

Additional administrative work as required, including document management, and coordination with other executive assistants and administrative staff to ensure processes run smoothly

We’re exciting about you if you have:
Strong organisational skills that reflect ability to perform and prioritise multiple tasks seamlessly with excellent attention to detail

Confident, resilient, reliable and collegiate

Global mind-set, understand time zones, cultural nuance and different working practices

Flexible and adaptable – a hands-on, can-do attitude is essential

Demonstrated ability to meet deadlines in a fast-paced environment

Forward looking thinker, who actively seeks opportunities and proposes solutions

Able to exercise discretion and confidentiality with sensitive information
