Office Coordinator

We’re looking for a highly capable and super-organised full-time Office Coordinator who can proactively make things happen in our very busy, venue management business.  

Responsible for the overall execution of PWV’s administrative operations, you can expect the usual nuts and bolts of any administration role, such as scheduling meetings, booking travel and ordering supplies.

In addition, you will be savvy enough to improve administration procedures, assist other teams with projects and carry out more specialised secretarial duties, including providing PA support to the Leadership Team.

You will be a proven multi-tasker with a strong eye for detail, and a whizz at organising just about anything and everything. You are solutions-focused, able to think on your feet and highly capable of managing competing demands within a varied workload.


•    Previous  experience in a similar administrative role, including working at PA level
•    Highly proactive, able to prioritise tasks and produce quality work in tight timeframes
•    Strong sense of judgement and discretion, with advanced problem solving skills
•    Superior communication skills with demonstrated experience in building and maintaining successful relationships
•    Advanced MS Office skills with the ability to quickly pick up new systems
•    Experience in reviewing and improving administration systems

Highly desirables:

•    Experience in minute taking
•    Experience in negotiating small supplier contracts
•    Experience with financial processes (e.g. payroll and accounts payable)
•    Able to start immediately
