Job Summary

About the Job

Hi, my name is Osagie Alonge. I’m a Media, Marketing and Entertainment executive. I am looking for an Executive Assistant to work with me in executing projects tied to businesses I manage and consult. After years of denying the importance of the role of assistant in my life, I have finally been convinced by friends and family to work with someone who can help take my projects off the ground and make me more efficient with other projects I currently manage. In your role as EA to me, you will work directly in helping me document my ideas, plan and manage projects and correspond with internal and external partners. I am a very meticulous person; I like everything detailed. I apply logical thinking to almost everything I do, but I also understand context and nuance; I will need you to think similarly. I’m, however, open to other ideas.
