EA role to the CEO. We’re on the lookout for someone special…

We’re looking for that special Executive Assistant to partner with our very well-connected and charismatic CEO who works across a vast network of our Kiwi SME customers and startups.


You know who we are, what we do and how we roll, and who would fit with our team.

An opportunity has come up for a contract role in our office for a 3-6-month basis (and possibly longer). We need someone who can start right away, and who wants to make a difference to our team.

They may be a switched on, smart uni student looking for a break in the business world; a more mature student of life looking to enter the workforce again after parenting; or an existing EA who is keen to take a shorter-term contract in a cool environment!

Their flexible approach will quickly gain trust across the team, and they’ll excel in this pivotal position. Success in this role will draw on their natural ability to be resilient, disciplined and demonstrate high personal responsibility – with low sensitivity and ego.

Key tasks and responsibilities:

Effective management of the CEO's mailbox and diary

Preparing correspondence, emails, presentations and expense claims and facilitating the company and leadership team meetings

Supporting the board of directors, sub-committees and Foundation (Icehouse Owner) including scheduling and collating meeting papers, preparing agendas and meeting minutes

A good understanding of statutory record-keeping and what is needed to keep the Companies Office website up-to-date - compliance will be one of the priorities

Providing administration support for Human Resource and event management as people and culture is important to us

A proven track record of operational excellence, who can keep calm when the pressure comes on

We do a lot of very cool stuff here at The Icehouse. So, if you or someone you know is keen on having fun, have them apply by sending Lisa a profile, a short narrative on why they think they’d fit, and the names of two referees (that we’ll only contact if you or someone you know is shortlisted).


  • Great team culture
  • Company laptop provided
  • Working from our cool Parnell co-working space
