Executive Assistant

  • Denver

Who You'll Work With

You will be a key contributor to our administrative support services team and will provide executive-level administrative support to a Denver senior partner. You will be based in the Denver office and will report to the administrative services manager and regional manager of administration.
When you join McKinsey as an EA, you are joining a firm that will challenge you and invest in your professional development. In this role, you will partner with your partners to optimize their time, create trust-based relationships within their network while building your own, and deliver high quality end-product. The partners’ network includes their teams, practices, and internal colleagues. You will work with partners, colleagues and EAs globally.

What You'll Do

You will build ongoing rapport with assigned partners, their clients, client assistants, internal colleagues, and other EAs. You will serve as a liaison and representative for the partners in dealing with clients, internal and external customers, and others while maintaining the confidentiality of highly sensitive information.
You will proactively, timely and with high quality, provide broad administrative support to help organize and leverage partner time effectively. Your core responsibilities will include, but are not limited to: heavy calendar management; arranging often complex international and local travel; organizing and maintaining all client and internal files with firm authorized system; meeting, event, and conference planning; coordinating logistics and technology for video/Zoom conferences of all sizes; preparation and submission of timesheets and expenses; manage/monitor WIPs (client accounting statements/invoices) upon request, complete miscellaneous printing, copying and mailing.
You will manage and maintain all written communications, including responding to and composing correspondence that not does require the personal attention of the partner or other consultants, as well as that which requires their signature. You will also produce accurate, properly formatted, typed documents (LOPs, client letters/memos, PowerPoint decks, etc.) under normally tight time constraints.
You will be an integral part of the administrative services team who evolves in the role by demonstrating firm values and engaging in learning opportunities. Your manager will provide guidance, suggested learning, and manage assignments which could shift daily or weekly. You will work collaboratively with colleagues in meeting peak work demands, complete projects and other tasks, and actively participate in team meetings and different training sessions.
