FAMILY OFFICE ASSISTANT RECRUITMENT AGENCY

Trust Sydney’s finest Family Office Assistant recruitment agency to find your dream Family Office Assistant

A family office assistant is not a run-of-the-mill assistant or even an office manager. They are all of that and more. They take care of your every detail, from the day-to-day running of the office administration (paper in the printer and the right milk in the fridge!) to assisting at a higher level with investments, business operations, etc.

Whether it’s liaising with the legal and finance teams for contracts, the minutiae of detail, signing, exchange, and execution, or the intricate details of bank transfers, paying bills, etc., they know and see everything. Trust and competency are key! Within the family office assistant role lies a multitude of responsibilities, with some pivotal tasks and duties being the primary point of contact for both you and the office. This role may also involve the potential management of junior administration staff. Additionally, it entails overseeing the payment of all family office and personal invoices and maintaining access to private banking and asset-related information. Furthermore, it involves taking charge of the management of acquisitions, business assets, and the efficient oversight of properties, vehicles, planes, horses, boats, and the associated personnel, among other duties.

What other role titles do Family Office Assistants have?

Family office assistants may hold titles like family office administrator, coordinator, or manager, reflecting their roles in overseeing various aspects of family office operations. They might also be known as family office executive assistants, highlighting their leadership roles and high-level support to family members. Whether specialising in finance, operations, or advisory services, they play a vital role in managing the financial and personal affairs of the families they support. These titles often adapt to each family’s unique needs and preferences and their evolving family office structures. 

What personal qualities should I look for in a Family Office Assistant?

When selecting a family office assistant, prioritise qualities like trustworthiness, discretion, and strong communication skills. They should excel in organisation, adaptability, and attention to detail, with the ability to handle complex challenges. Professionalism, empathy, and problem-solving abilities are key to building positive relationships and addressing diverse needs. Tech-savviness and financial acumen are valuable, along with cultural sensitivity and a proactive, ethical approach. The assistant should remain loyal, dedicated, and composed under pressure, always prioritising the family’s well-being and interests.
