You will work closely together with the Director of Accelerating Asia to make sure the administrative tasks of our business are organised and executed in an efficient and timely manner.

What you get

If you want to immerse yourself in a startup environment, this is a great place to be. You will be introduced to new ways of working and thinking and have the opportunity to expand your skill set. And all while getting paid for it and working within a flexible, casual work environment. Yay!

What you bring to the table:

  • High attention to detail and excellent organizational skills
  • You’re a problem-solver and are comfortable working without much guidance and in an environment that can seem vague at times
  • You’re able to develop strong relationships with the people that will make your job easier (think: accountants, lawyers, f&b vendors)
  • Written and verbal communication skills (by the way, one of our values is being upfront and honest)
  • Comfortable working in a startup environment (we move FAST)
  • You embrace digital tools and automate processes like you’re equal parts investor and creative
  • Previous experience in a similar role or at a startup is a bonus

How you will know how awesome you are:

  • Our team thinks your work is accurate, clear, and organised  
  • Our team knows that we can rely on you - you are trustworthy, dependable, and can think out of the box to get things done
  • Our stakeholders (accountants, limited partners, fund administrators, etc.) have an excellent experience interacting with you
