Senior Office Manager - Fluent English

Good interpersonal relationships
Event coordination & organisation
Driver's License
Valbonne (06560) France
Available soon Open to opportunities
Linked to the company's management, I participate in the organisation between the different services and assist them for administrative tasks, communication and events. I also manage external relationships with customers, suppliers and service providers. I am the key element of the company, because I centralise all information, while showing a sense of discretion and confidentiality.
Available and attentive, with excellent interpersonal skills; autonomous and dynamic, I know how to evolve in the international universe, with full English proficiency. I can also make it easier for staff to commute to work for their day-to-day well-being, which is one of the key factors in business performance.
Available with a month's notice, contact me to discuss.
